One of the most bet on games of the week is the Indianapolis Colts vs. Green Bay Packers with a line that opened at pick and odds that have climbed in favor of the Colts to -1 ½. betED.com was offering the +1 ½ line for Green Bay. Other books were still offering a -1 line.

The home team has won 6 of 7 dating back to 1985 but there isn't a whole lot of recent head-to-head matchup history here.

The Colts have won 13 straight games in October. ... Under coach Tony Dungy, the Colts are 20-6 against the NFC. ... Packers CB Tramon Williams has had an interception in three straight games. ... Charles Woodson leads the league with two interception returns for touchdowns this year.

Beware: The Colts are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win. The Packers are 11-5 ATS in their last 16 games following a ATS win. However, Green Bay is also 1-6-2 ATS in their last 9 home games vs. a team with a winning road record.

For the first time this season, the Colts offense was in rhythm and powered past what was the Ravens' top-ranked defense, 31-3. ... Aaron Rodgers tossed two touchdown passes to lead the Packers past the ailing Seahawks, 27-17.

The books will be wanting a Green Bay win real bad. 95 percent of the action was going Indianapolis' way, which might explain why they are now a firm road favorite.

Due to injury concerns on both teams and inadequate past head-to-head matchup history, Gambling911.com will not be offering a pick on this game.
