Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts are having a banner season. The Colts have turned things around and went from a laughing stock in the league to a team on the verge of grabbing a playoff berth.
The Detroit Lions are having a disappointing season. Many expected this team to compete for the Super Bowl, but after a slow start by All-Pro Calvin Johnson, the Lions will miss the playoffs barring a miracle. The Lions can still finish the season on a winning note and it all starts with this game against the Colts.
Indianapolis Colts vs Detroit Lions Odds: Despite the tough season, the Lions are listed as (-4.5) point favorites at home over the Colts. The latest NFL Consensus report shows that no one believes in the Lions and 59 percent of the public is backing the Colts.

The Lions still have plenty of talent. Matthew Stafford is a quality signal caller and Calvin Johnson has exploded over the last few games. Stafford should have a field day against a Colts passing defense that has osme serious issues. The Colt’ pass defense averages 233.8 net yards allowed per game (19th in the NFL) with a high total of 19 pass TDs given out this year, vs. just five interceptions (tied for last in the NFL) and 23 sacks (21st) generated to date.
The Lions will be able to score early and often against the Colts pass defense.
The Lions are performing better on offense and that carries over to the next game from a betting standpoint as the Lions are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous game.
The Colts team is motivated by the heartwarming story of Coach Chuck Pagano and the story of the Colts cheerleader from a week ago is amazing, but they still have to play the game.
The Colts are off a poor performance and much like the Lions; their effort often carries over to the next game. The Colts are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.
Andrew Luck is very talented and he has this team headed in the right direction for the future. However, this out of conference game is the perfect letdown against a Lions team with rest looking for redemption.
