Indianapolis Colts vs. Tampa Bay Bucs, 12/6/19 NFL Predictions & Odds

The 6-6 Colts head to Tampa on Sunday to visit the 5-7 Bucs and the total for the game has dropped from 49.5 down to 47. Is the under the best play for bettors or will these two teams combine for enough points to push the total over?

Indianapolis Colts Fantasy Spin

T.Y. Hilton (calf) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice. Hilton is all but certain to miss his second straight game and was noncommittal when asked if he expected to play again this year. The good news is that Parris Campbell (hand) has resumed practicing in full, putting him on track to play Sunday at Tampa Bay, where he will presumably work alongside Zach Pascal and Marcus Johnson in three-wide sets.

Tampa Bay Bucs Fantasy Spin

Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians said Ronald Jones is "still the starter." We don't believe it. Jones was benched in the first quarter of Sunday's win over the Jaguars for missing a blitz pickup mid-game, paving the way for Peyton Barber to rush for 17/44/2 off the bench. It's always possible Jones starts and handles a bulk of the work over Barber, but it isn't worth finding out in the first round of the fantasy playoffs. Jones lacked explosiveness (3.56 YPA) on 11.3 carries per game in his four previous starts, anyhow. The Bucs' backfield is clearly one to avoid barring an injury.

NFL Betting Trends

Indianapolis

The under is 8-2 in the Colts’ last 10 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

Tampa Bay

The over is 4-0 in the Bucs’ last four games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.

Prediction

The under is 5-2 in the Colts’ last seven road games, is 23-8 in their last 31 games in December and is 21-5 in their last 26 games following a double-digit loss at home. The under is also 5-2 in the Bucs’ last seven games as a favorite, is 9-4 in their last 13 games as a home favorite and has cashed in five of their last six games played in the month of December.
