This Wild Card game is a rematch of the October 19th contest in which the Colts hammered the Bengals 27-0 in Indianapolis. The Colts outgained Cincinnati 506-135. That, my friends, is complete domination. Both teams finished the season pretty strong which is important heading into the playoffs. Just look at what Arizona did yesterday as they limped into the postseason. The Bengals won 5 of their last 7 losing only to the Steelers twice. The Colts went 5-1 down the stretch losing only at Dallas.
Andrew Luck has had a big year again for Indianapolis, while Andy Dalton has struggled a bit. This is where this game comes down to. The Colts might not have the better overall team, but Luck is ready to shine in the postseason. This won’t be another 27-0 game, but I do believe the Colts win this by a touchdown or more.
PICK: Colts -3.5 (buy the half point to -3)
