Chargers vs. Colts

Once again the San Diego Chargers start off slowly and have begun to pick things up as this week’s Chargers vs. Colts spread demonstrates.  Any other .500 team would have odds in Indianapolis of a touchdown or greater.  Not these Chargers.  San Diego comes to town as a +3 underdog.  Don’t expect the line in this game to move much the remainder of this week either.  The betting public appears to be in agreement with the 3-point spread, offering up even action on both sides. 

The Colts at 6-4 are having their least dominant season in quite some time.  They are currently tied atop the AFC South with Jacksonville at 6-4.  By comparison, last year, the Colts started off the season 14-0

But this is a banged up Indianapolis squad that San Diego could fully take advantage of.  The Chargers have won and covered 4 of the last 5 games vs. Indianapolis. 

Some important trends to consider before betting on this game include the following:

The Chargers are 6-0 Against The Spread in their last 6 November games, which could prove a fairly significant stat where this team is concerned.  The Colts are 5-1-1 ATS in November games. 

San Diego is a very impressive 21-6-3 ATS as an underdog in their last 30 games. 

The Chargers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games.

San Diego is 1-8 ATS after allowing 15 points in their previous game. 

The Colts are 11-5-2 ATS in their last 18 games as a favorite. 

The Colts are 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 games vs. the AFC.

Indianapolis is 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a home favorite of 0.5 to 3.0.

We should note that the total in this game is set at 51.5, the highest of any other NFL game total this week.
