Trending Towards The Chargers

The Chargers have done a solid job against the spread this season with an 8-5-1 record thus far and have heated things up in their last six games going 4-2 ATS. The Colts ATS record, on the other hand, sits at 6-8 and they are currently losing their games by -6.6 points on average and failing to cover the spread by -5.2 points on average. The Colts have also failed to cover in three of their last five games.

Looking at the Colts even further, since 2017, NFL oddsmakers  have listed them as a road underdog of 3-5 points six times and have gone 2-4 ATS and 1-5 S/U. As for matchup trends, the two have faced off four times since 2010 in which the Chargers have gone 3-1 S/U and 2-1-1 ATS.

Something else going against the Colts are key missing pieces. To start, Jonathan Taylor was recently placed on IR ending his season leaving Deon Jackson, Zack Moss, and Jordan Wilkins to take over the running game. Each of which have less than 200 rushing yards on the season.

Also, the Colts have made yet another switch under center with Nick Foles now taking over QB1 duties making him their third starting quarterback this season. With this being Foles first game played this season and injuries continuing to pile up for Indy, bettors should be grateful that the spread isn’t set further.
