Oddsmakers currently have the Colts listed as 7-point favorites versus the Jets, while the game’s total is sitting at 47.
Luck and Indianapolis’ offense did next to nothing for nearly three quarters a week ago and could be without top wideout T.Y. Hilton, who has not practiced this week after suffering a bruised knee that was thought to be much more severe. A pair of veteran newcomers both had quiet debuts with the Colts – Andre Johnson had four catches for 24 yards and running back Frank Gore was limited to 31 yards on 10 carries as Indy managed only 64 yards rushing. The Colts have issues on the other side of the ball with starting cornerback Greg Toler to miss a second straight week while his backup, Darius Butler (hip), did not practice Friday.
Indianapolis lost its last outing, a 27-14 result against the Bills on September 13. The Colts failed to cover in that game as a -1-point favorite, while the 41 combined points took the game UNDER the total.
Team record: 0-1 SU,0-1 ATS
Indianapolis is 13-5 SU in its last 18 games
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Indianapolis’s last 5 games
Indianapolis is 10-2-1 ATS in its last 13 games at home
Indianapolis is 7-1 SU in its last 8 games at home
New York amassed 154 yards on the ground against Cleveland but there are injury concerns over Chris Ivory (groin), who was limited in practice for a second straight day Friday after rushing for 91 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries in Week 1. Ryan Fitzpatrick, elevated to starter when Geno Smith had his jaw broken in the preseason, threw for 179 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while Brandon Marshall had six catches for 62 yards and a score in his Jets debut. New York’s defense forced five fumbles and had three sacks but figures to receive a much more stern test from Luck than Johnny Manziel.
New York was a 31-10 winner in its last match at home against the Browns. They covered the -3.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 41 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.
