 Indianapolis Colts vs Minnesota Vikings

 

Point Spread Value

The Vikings beat the woeful Jacksonville Jaguars in week 14, snapping a two-game losing streak. It marked only their second win in eight games and has them improving to a 7-6-0 SU record. It’s been a tale of two seasons for the Vikings: a great start behind five straight wins followed by a nosedive on the heels of a week 6 bye. It’s a bit confounding. Will the real Vikings please stand up. There’s really not a lot to take away from last week’s win and cover over the Jaguars. That being said the Vikings are 8-5-0 ATS on the season with a 2.5 winning margin on average and a +1.5 differential versus the spread.

The Colts, meanwhile, are coming off a loss to divisional rivals Texans last week. They are 6-6-1 ATS with a -0.4 losing margin and +0.8 differential versus the spread. Consistency has been an issue for the better part of the season but recent weeks have been encouraging with three wins in their last four games, including a signature 31-28 win at Lambeau as the +7.5 road underdogs. Not sure the Colts can be dismissed, which has us lapping up the points on week 15 NFL picks.

 The Survivor

Neither team can seem to get the ball rolling in any way shape or form in recent weeks, which makes this a bit of a tossup in terms of straight up betting. The Vikings are the home favorites but wins are few and far in between. The Colts have shown slightly better form than the Vikings have and they are 3-3-0 SU on the road too. It’s a tossup, really. We’re leaning towards the Colts but it wouldn’t be so shocking if the Vikings spring to life at home.

Game Total

With no consistency on either team, it’s anybody’s guess how this game will go down in each and every market, including totals. The Colts are 8-5-0 in O/U betting but when they face tough defenses the UNDER tends to rule. The Vikings are 5-8-0 in O/U betting largely down to the strength of their defense and less than potent offense. Consider this game is in Minnesota it’s likely the Vikings defense will hold court.
