The Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Colts are 5-point home underdogs versus the Broncos after Denver opened as a 3-point road favorite. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 45 points.

The Records

Denver enters play with a 7-0 record and is now 5-2 against the spread after beating Green Bay outright as a 2.5-point home underdog last Sunday night. Indianapolis is 3-5 overall and 3-5 against the spread after covering the spread in a loss to Carolina on Monday night.

The Pick

Andrew Luck says he's healthy and did lead the Colts to a near-win over the Panthers on Monday night but he still doesn't look right. For nearly three quarters on Monday in Carolina he misfired to open receivers and was often indecisive in the pocket. If he plays like that again today the Broncos are going to win in a rout because they boast one of the league's best defenses and an offense that seemingly figured things out last Sunday night. Denver held Aaron Rodgers to only 77 yards passing last week in a win over Green Bay and Peyton Manning put together his most efficient game of the season in perfect weather. He'll be indoors today in a familiar environment and should thrive against an Indy defense that kept the team in the game against Carolina but should wilt against Denver.
