Colts vs. Cardinals 2013 picks and predictions: Arizona picked heavily

USA TODAY Sports

Arizona is favored at home, but can they stop Andrew Luck and the Colts?

The Arizona Cardinals welcome in the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon, with both teams fighting for a playoff berth in their respective conferences.

Arizona is surprising some folks at 6-4. The Cardinals are in a furious battle for a wild card spot, tied with the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears for the sixth and final playoff seed in the NFC.

On the other sideline, the Colts are rolling to an AFC South title thanks to a terrible division. At 7-3, Indianapolis has been a tough team to peg, beating the Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos and 49ers but losing to the Miami Dolphins, St. Louis Rams and San Diego Chargers.

Over at ESPN.com, nine of the 13 experts thought the Cardinals will prevail. Our six guys at SBNation.com have a 4-2 split in Arizona's favor as well.

At CBSSports.com, six of the eight experts believe the Cardinals will cover the 2.5-point spread and also win straight-up.
