Colts vs. Patriots

With the Colts vs. Patriots line moving up to -4 from the opening -3, spread action was around 60/40 favoring New England.  This was a heavily bet on game with the Patriots still among the top 5 most bet on teams of the week despite action not being entirely lopsided.  The Colts would pay out $17.50 for every $10 bet with an outright win on the money line.  Nearly 60 percent of those betting the money line were backing Indianapolis.  The OVER/UNDER was 50 with slightly more people (65 percent) betting the UNDER.

The Colts have covered in 4 of the last 6 games of this series while pushing in a 5th.  Indianapolis has won 5 of the last 6 games against New England Straight Up.  They successfully knocked off Cincinnati last weekend.  They come into this game 6-3 while New England is at 7-2. 

The Patriots pulled off a big win against Pittsburgh last week. Tom Brady had his sixth career game with at least 350 passing yards, three TDs and zero interceptions. That's tied for second most all-time with Peyton Manning.
