Sunday night will be a highly-anticipated game between two teams fighting for a playoff spot. Here is what Vegas has to say about the game.
If you’re a sports gambler, the last Sunday game of the regular season is something I would stay away from. It’s between the Colts and the Titans, and the winner makes the playoffs. It is a game of two very closely matched teams, not exactly what you’re looking for while betting.
But if you do decide to bet on this game, Vegas has some interesting takes on it. As of right now, the Colts are a 3.5 point favorite. That makes the Titans a home underdog in a do or die game. That is extremely tricky to navigate for your betting line.
On one hand, the Colts are the hotter of the two teams and have been playing great football. They also destroyed the Titans 38-10 in the first matchup. On the other hand, the Titans have home field advantage on a Sunday night stage.
Typically, I would take the home underdog without a second thought. But with the Titans having uncertainty who will start at quarterback, it might be a good idea to take the Colts and the points. They are the healthier team right now and are playing like the better team as well.
The over/under is 43 points. That seems about right for this game. If I had to choose, I would take the over. The Colts will be able to score a large amount of points because of Andrew Luck. Tennessee should be able to score some too being able to run the ball as well as they do.
This game will be a great game to watch. I would not bet anything on this game because of the stakes at hand for both teams. But if you do, take this advice to heart.
