The Indianapolis Colts play the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this Sunday. Here are the odds and prediction for the Week 12 matchup.
The Indianapolis Colts are coming off their biggest win to date, putting the NFL on notice with a blowout victory over the Buffalo Bills. The Colts are now over .500 for the first time this season at 6-5 and ride a three-game winning streak into Week 12.
Looking to halt Indianapolis’ momentum will be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The defending champions visit Indianapolis with a 7-3 record after dominating the Giants on Monday Night Football. The Buccaneers are a team that’s getting more healthy as the season progresses, and they already have the top scoring offense and a top-10 defense.
This will be another challenge for Indianapolis, but last week’s game showed everyone that the team is ready for challenges. Expect the formula of Jonathan Taylor and forced turnovers to be used again as Indianapolis fights its way into the playoffs.
Colts vs Buccaneers odds Week 12
According to the odds at WynnBET, the Colts are +120 underdogs (bet $100 to win $120). Tampa Bay, however, is the favorite to win at -140 ( bet $140 win 100). This is the second straight week Indianapolis has been underdogs on the money line, and they will look to beat the odds again.
The spread is set at 3 points and the Colts’ odds are -116 to beat the spread, while the Buccaneers are -105 to cover. This means a $105 bet on the Bucs to win by three or more points gets you $100, while a $116 bet on Indianapolis to not lose by more than two points gets you $100.
The over/under for this game is set at 51.5 points with -110 odds.
Colts vs Buccaneers Week 12 prediction
The Indianapolis team that beat the Bills this past Sunday is one of the best teams in the NFL. The question is, how often can that version of Indianapolis show up? Even if that version shows up against Tampa on Sunday, they still will have their hands full.
The Buccaneers are loaded at nearly every position, and every week they seem to be getting someone back from injury. They’ve already dropped a couple of games that they should have won, so expect them to come into Indianapolis hyper-focused.
Because of that, expect Tampa Bay to win in a competitive game. The Colts should still put forth a quality performance, but the Buccaneers will prevail in the end.
