IN­DI­ANAPO­LIS over Den­ver by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - 2-minute Handicap -

If this Week 14 NFL opener is look­ing for a spon­sor, can we sug­gest the folks at Bud Light so they can file this one in the ‘Pit of Mis­ery’. We re­al­ize that NBC thought they would be get­ting An­drew Luck and Colts in the thick of the AFC South race tak­ing on a Den­ver squad that fig­ured to be near the top in to­tal de­fense. In­stead, they get a pair of teams that are a com­bined 7-19 with a cast of QBs that would have a hard time com­plet­ing a pass on ABC’s ‘Bach­e­lor in Par­adise’ – a se­cluded is­land where you find des­per­ate, drunken, heart­bro­ken girls roam­ing around in biki­nis. We wouldn’t blame you for switch­ing net­works but we’re go­ing to take ad­van­tage of a line er­ror that has the Bron­cos ar­riv­ing as road chalk. Yes, Den­ver is 5-0 ATS on Thurs­days against non-divi­sion op­po­si­tion but they are a head-scratch­ing 0-8 SUATS in their last eight road­ies, in­clud­ing 0-6 SUATS un­der 1st-year head coach Vance Joseph. They are also a worn out 0-9-1 ATS in the 4th quar­ter of the sea­son (Games 13-16) when com­ing off a SU un­der­dog win. The Colts have had suc­cess on this day of the week (13-2 SU and 12-2-1 ATS) and, more im­por­tantly, in this se­ries where they are 8-2 SU and 9-1 ATS in the past 10 meet­ings, in­clud­ing 5-0 SUATS at home. Need­less to say, we have no choice but to close this out with one fi­nal thought: Dilly, Dilly! Satur­day, De­cem­ber 16
