NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Indianapolis. According to latest NFL trends, Indianapolis is 5-1 ATS L6 on the road in series. This has been a very long season in Kansas City for a variety of reasons. While their defense has been trying, their offense is inept, as they average just 320.1ypg overall and 181 ypg in the air. Indianapolis' pass defense is their weakness but they won't be tested against a Chiefs' squad that is without their best receiver in Dwayne Bowe, who is on the IR. The Chiefs allow 26.2ppg and average a miniscule 13.9ppg. They were shutout last week against one of the worst defenses in the league, 15-0 by the Oakland Raiders. The Colts can clinch a playoff berth with a win so they can't afford to overlook a Chiefs team who has played competitively at home. QB Andrew Luck will bounce back this week.
