NFL Playoff Odds: Colts Favored By 2.5 Against Jets In Indianapolis

When the New York Jets travel to Indianapolis to take on the Colts in the NFL Playoffs on Saturday night, they will be handed two and a half points at the door — for betting purposes only. The odds currently favor the Colts by 2.5.

This season, the Colts are .500 at home against the spread, and the Jets are 5-3 against the spread on the road. Based purely on trends, that would make New York the smart bet. SB Nation’s Joel Thorman is picking the Jets to win the game outright, 24-17. Regardless, it should be a close contest. The Colts average 27 points per game, but the Jets defense is sixth in the NFL, giving up 19 points per game. Essentially, it’s a great offense against a great defense, which could mean the margin of victory is slim.

If you want to steer clear of the line and bet the over/under, it’s currently set at 44.5. The combined points scored average for the two teams this season is 50.1.
