Betting against the Indianapolis Colts and Andrew Luck this year has not been a very good move, but this betting line is inflated. Luck and Robert Griffin III are getting all the hype this season, but in Week 14 the Colts are getting too much respect from the odds makers.
Titans quarterback Jake Locker will have an extra week to get adjusted to a new offense, and he should get an improved effort from his teammates.
Against the Houston Texans, the Titans receivers dropped six passes! This is out of the norm for a usual sure-handed receiving corps. Expect an improved effort this week against a suspect Colts secondary.
The pass defense of the Colts allows an average of 240 yards per game which is good for No. 20 in the NFL, and they have allowed 21 touchdowns on the season. Last week against the lowly Lions, they did not record one sack or one interception.
The underdog is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings, and the Titans have the Colts on upset alert in Week 14.
Prediction: Titans 33 Colts 31
