AFC Wildcard Game: Jets vs. Colts


The AFC Wildcard kicks off on Saturday night when the loud and proud New York Jets travel to Indianapolis to take on Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts.

The latest NFL sports betting odds from online sports book Skybook have the Colts listed as 2.5 (-113) point favorites with the total set at 44.5.
Jets head coach Rex Ryan has never been afraid to talk about an opponent and the game against the Colts is no different. Ryan had nothing but praise for Manning and his abilities at quarterback, but he does suggest that this is a huge revenge game for his team.
The Jets lost a year ago to the Colts in the AFC Championship game and will be hoping that this go around will be much different. Manning and the Colts are finally getting healthy and have different ideas.
Manning spent most of the year without the use of his weapons as they all seemed to have injuries at one time or another. Dallas Clark was the most notable lost, but now that the post season is here the Colts seem to be running the ball again with the return of Joseph Addai and are capable of making a run in the playoffs.
Both teams have some very positive sports betting trends in their favor for this game.
The Jets are 4-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last four games after scoring more than 30 points in their previous game and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games as a road underdog of 0.5-3.0.
The 35-16-3 ATS in their last 54 games following a straight up win, 18-7-2 ATS when they play a team with a winning record and 8-3-2 ATS in their last 13 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
This AFC Wildcard game should come down to a chess match between the great Peyton Manning and the ferocious Jets defense.
The winner will move on and have a shot at winning the Super bowl!
