The home team is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are always going to compete under Mike Tomlin, but there are limitations this season due to a defense that is dead last against the pass and a quarterback who is good for a turnover or two. The Indianapolis Colts made weird changes to their coaching staff, but that produced a win over the Raiders and nearly upset the Eagles. The Colts have some pep in their step for the first time in a while and they’re still in the thick of the wild card race. Strangely enough, I have more confidence in the Colts as a whole than I do the Steelers. I’ll lay the field goal.
