NFL Week 16 Betting Odds - Colts vs Ravens

The 3-11 Indianapolis Colts will travel to Baltimore to take on the 8-6 Ravens in this week’s Saturday afternoon matchup. These teams are headed in opposite directions as the Colts have lost 5 games in a row while the Ravens are winners of 4 of their last 5. Indianapolis lost to the Denver Broncos at home last week by the score of 25-13. During their losing streak, they have only averaged 10 points per game. The Ravens kept their playoff hopes alive with a 27-10 road victory over the Cleveland Browns. The only loss in their last 5 games was a last minute 39-38 heartbreaker to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin hurt his knee in the victory against Cleveland and has not practiced this week and is doubtful for this game.

Jacoby Brissett finished with a quarterback rating of 51 as he completed 17 of 30 passes for 158 yards, 0 touchdowns and 0 interceptions. His favorite target was Jack Doyle who had 7 catches for 47 yards. They struggled running the ball gaining just 70 yards with Frank Gore leading the team with 31 on 10 carries. Defensively, they gave up 462 yards to the Broncos which is 120 more than their season average. They couldn’t stop the run as the Broncos gained 213 yards on 45 carries, which is an average of 4.7 yards per run. They had 1 interception, 3 sacks and 5 tackles for losses. For the year, the Colts defense has allowed their opponents to score 26 points and gain 392 yards per game.

Joe Flacco finished with a passer rating of 90 last week to help keep the Ravens playoff hopes alive. He completed 26 of 42 passes for 268 yards, 1 touchdown and 0 interceptions. His favorite target was Mike Wallace who had 6 catches for 89 yards. Benjamin Watson also had a nice game with 79 yards and a touchdown on 4 catches. The team averaged 3.1 yards per rush as they gained 97 yards on 31 carries. Defensively, they forced 4 turnovers including 2 interceptions and 2 fumble recoveries. They struggled against the rush as the Browns gained 130 yards on 19 carries which is an average of 6.8 yards per run. On the year, the Ravens defense has allowed their opponents to score an average of 18 points and gain 343 yards per game.

Baltimore will have home field advantage and is favored by 13.5 points in this game. They have gone 8-5-1 against the spread this season including 3-3 at home. Indianapolis has gone 6-8 against the spread this season including 2-5 on the road. If Baltimore can win their next 2 games which are both at home, they will clinch a spot in the playoffs.
