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.

Let’s look at some important betting trends coming into the Colts vs. Patriots second half Sunday game.

The Colts are 9-1-2 Against The Spread vs. a team with a winning record.

The Colts are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog.  The Patriots are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a home favorite of 3.5-10.0.

Following Notre Dame's big win over Wisconsin, we will see the Badgers team rating take a nose dive.  Michigan beat Rutgers by a touchdown and this should boost their rating further.  Remarkably, had Wisconsin not have lost so badly to the Fighting Irish Saturday, Michigan would only be a -1 favorite coming into the Week 5 game.  We are anticipating the Badgers to fall to around 30th for a rating of 77 while Michigan rises a bit to overtake Clemson's 87.51 prior to their loss to NC State.
