Key Trend: The Bengals are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games and 1-4 against the spread in their last five games when playing Indianapolis. The total has also gone over in six of Cincinnati’s last eight games when playing the Colts.
Key Stat: The Colts dominant virtually every main statistical category in this matchup, including points for (21.4 to 12.6), points against (20.8 to 25.8), offensive passing yards per game (239.1 to 154.8), and rushing yards per game (79.8 to 77.7).
Game Outlook: While the Colts have been winning, they haven’t been covering. Indy is just 2-5 against the spread in its last seven games, but this is a contest they should roll. The Bengals don’t have too much fight left in them and don’t have the pieces in the secondary to keep the Colts’ dynamic passing game in check. Unless the Bengals can get their running game going and keep Indy’s offense off the field, Cincy doesn’t stand a chance. Expect Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison to pick apart the Bengals’ defense and dominant this contest.
