Oddsmakers currently have the Colts listed as 2-point favorites versus the Jets, while the game’s total is sitting at 48½.
Brandon Marshall reeled in his first touchdown reception since Oct. 9 on Sunday and looks to continue to torment the Colts, against whom he has 37 catches for 420 yards and four scores in his last three meetings. The veteran wideout is expected to be matched up against former Dolphins teammate Vontae Davis despite nursing knee and foot injuries that have prevented him from practicing on Thursday and Friday. New York could also look to exploit Indianapolis’ 23rd-ranked run defense (116.3 yards per game) with veteran Matt Forte, who has amassed 508 yards from scrimmage and five touchdowns (four rushing, one receiving) in the past five contests.
In their last action, New York was a 22-17 loser at home against the Patriots. They covered the +9.5-point spread as underdogs, while the combined score (39) was profitable news for UNDER bettors.

Luck’s most trusted target is T.Y. Hilton (NFL fifth-best 942 receiving yards), and the elusive wideout is expected to play on Monday despite sustaining a back injury against the Steelers. Wide receiver Donte Moncrief reeled in a season high-tying six receptions last week and scored in his fourth straight game, although his yardage total (178) in that span doesn’t jump off the page. Veteran Frank Gore has struggled in each of the last two games with just 78 yards on 33 carries, but the 33-year-old needs just 30 yards rushing to move past Hall of Famer Tony Dorsett (12,739) for eighth on the NFL’s all-time list.
Last time out for Indianapolis, they were a 28-7 loser as they battled the Steelers at home. The Colts failed to cover in the match as a +8-point underdog, while 35 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
