Football gambling handicappers will have their choice of two of the top favorites with the NFL lines to dethrone the Pittsburgh Steelers as champions of the AFC. This game will feature two of the top quarterbacks and defenses in all of pro football.
After a sluggish start to the football gambling season the New England Patriots now look to be in championship form as they have won 3 consecutive games straight up with 2 payouts with the NFL lines during that span.
New England now has a football gambling record of 6-2 straight up and 4-4 against the spread. The Patriots have a 2-game lead for first place in the AFC East Division. New England has the 2nd ranked offense in football gambling and quarterback Tom Brady is in top form.
Brady has a football gambling QB rating of 99.2 with a 66% completion rate, 2364 yards, and a 16/5 touchdown to interception ratio. The Patriots defense has been air tight and ranks 2nd in football gambling for points allowed. The Patriots have gone under the over/under NFL lines in all 3 of their previous road games.
The Indianapolis Colts have a football gambling record of 8-0 straight up and 5-3 against the spread and lead the AFC North Division by 3.5 games. The Colts are becoming something of a football gambling overlay, however, as they have failed to cover their last 2 games.
The Colts have trended under at home with a mark of 1-3 against the over/under football gambling number. Quarterback Peyton Manning has been a great as ever with a QB rating of 105.2, a 71% completion rate, and a 16/5 touchdown to interception ratio. The Colts defense ranks 1st in all of football gambling for points allowed.
New England is a solid 15-8 against the spread on the road while the Colts have proven to be overpriced at home with a mark of 4-10 against the spread. Indianapolis has gotten the cash in just 2 out of their last 18 home games against the Patriots.
