Dolphins easy prey for red-hot Colts

The Indianapolis Colts are on the march in the race for the play-offs after four straight wins and next up on the menu for Andrew Luck and co is a fast-sinking Miami Dolphins team.

Colts -8 @ 10/11

The Colts are finally starting to put a tough couple of years behind them following the return from a two-year lay-off of star quarter-back Luck, coupled with a much-improved offensive line now protecting the 2012 first-round pick.

With the 29-year-old conducting the offense, Franck Reich’s men are keeping the Houston Texans on their toes in the fight for the AFC South title and are 4/1 to finish atop their division.

Few teams have looked as good as the Colts through the last few weeks with their offense now averaging close to 30 points a game, while a Darius Leonard-inspired defense is keeping the opposition quiet.

Having thumped the Tennessee Titans last week, they now welcome Miami to the Lucas Oil Stadium for what should be another big home win. Don’t be fooled by both these teams being at 5-5 as the Dolphins have lost three of their last four and have only won on the road once all season.

Both their offense and defense rank in the bottom six of the entire NFL so the Colts should have no problems covering the spread.

Cleveland to beat Cincinnati @ 7/5

You have to go all the way back to October 2015 for the last time the Cleveland Browns won a road game, and if they don’t get the better of Cincinnati on Sunday, they will equal the NFL record for the longest winless streak away from home.

However, this is a Browns team fresh off a bye week after beating Atlanta in their last game and who have a potential superstar in their ranks in quarter-back Baker Mayfield.

They are coming up against a Bengals team on the slide after four defeats from their last five matches. Cincinnati’s run defense is now the worst in the league so look for Nick Chubb to have a big day for the Browns as they look to end their long wait for a road win at their AFC North divisional rivals.

Green Bay v Minnesota – Over 47.5 points @ 25/28

The 4-1-5 Packers and the 5-1-4 Vikings are both in desperate need of a win as they prepare to face off in Minneapolis in the early hours of Monday morning. Both teams suffered crushing defeats last time out and now appear to be battling it out for a wildcard spot with Chicago running away with the NFC North.

These two played out a 29-29 tie at Lambeau Field earlier in the season and should once again be evenly matched on both sides of the ball. With that in mind and the offenses averaging over 24 points a game, the points total offers some value here in a game where each team will need to lay it all on the line.
