The Indianapolis Colts play the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football. Here are the odds and a prediction for the matchup.
With six remaining regular season games, the Indianapolis Colts are a mediocre 4-6-1. Every week, the team’s chances of making the playoffs become slimmer and slimmer. However, Indy has continued to fight and will have the opportunity to get right in a primetime game for Week 12. Indianapolis will be hosting the Pittsburgh Steelers for Monday Night Football.
The Steelers aren’t having all that good of a season either. They’ll be entering Monday’s game at 3-7 and coming off a competitive loss just like Indianapolis. The primetime matchup will be between two struggling teams that are fighting to get right. Which squad is likely to come out on top?

Currently, FanDuel has the spread set at 2.5 points. The odds of the Colts winning by three or more points is -115 (bet $115 to win $100). However, the odds of the Steelers losing by two points or less is -105 (bet $105 to win $100).
The over/under for this game is currently set at 39.5 with -110 odds for the over and the under. That means a $110 bet on the over will win $100 if the combined points equal 40 or more and a $110 bet on the under will win $100 if the combined points equal 39 or less.
Colts vs. Steelers prediction Week 12
Both Indianapolis and Pittsburgh have some serious flaws. While they’ve been fighting to stay in the mix, it’s becoming clear each week that the playoffs are unlikely for either team. However, Indy will likely end the Steelers’ playoff hopes this week by handing them their eighth loss of the season and simultaneously keeping hope alive for the Colts.
While Indy’s offense has been bad, Indianapolis’ defense will probably stop Pittsburgh’s struggling offense more than the Steelers’ defense will stop the Colts. However, it definitely shouldn’t be a high-scoring game or a blowout in any fashion.
