The Denver Broncos travel to Indianapolis, IN to face the Colts. The Broncos are 2-5 on the season and are coming off a Thursday night 30-6 loss to the Chiefs at home. The Colts enter this home contest after a win over the Texans to improve to 4-2 on the season. They beat the Texans 30-23 at home on Sunday.
In the loss to the Chiefs, Broncos quarterback Joe Flacco was 21/34 for 213 yds. Courtland Sutton was targeted the most, he hauled in 5 receptions on 8 targets for 87 yds. Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman combined to rush for 71 yds on 21 carries and a touchdown. Joe Flacco had a lost fumble that was returned for a touchdown in the game.

The Broncos are 6-6 ATS as an underdog since 2018.
The Broncos are 1-2 ATS as a road team this season.
The under is 3-1 when the Broncos are an underdog.
The Colts are 5-3-1 ATS as a home favorite since 2018.
The Colts are 4-1-1 ATS this season.
The over is 3-0 when the Colts are the home team this season.
The Broncos up to this point have not showed much offensively this year and until they do, its hard to put a lot of faith in the over. Yes, the over is 3-0 when the Colts are at home but the Colts have not faced the Broncos at home. The Broncos defense saw a positive stretch in good play before the Chiefs game, where they gave up 13 points in 2 weeks. I still think the Broncos defense is a little underrated and with the Broncos offense being non existent for stretches of the year, I like the under here. Final score prediction, Colts win and the total goes under 27-13.
