NFL picks and predictions, Colts vs. Chiefs 2013: Experts going with Kansas City

The experts are nearly unanimous in picking the Kansas City Chiefs to best the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16.

The Indianapolis Colts will take on the Kansas City Chiefs in an important Week 16 matchup on Sunday. Kansas City is 11-3 on the season, and has already punched its ticket into the playoffs. A dominating Week 15 victory over the Oakland Raiders sealed that deal.

Indianapolis is 9-5 on the season and has clinched the AFC South, though the Colts have made things a lot tougher than they need to be in recent weeks, alternating wins and losses over the past seven games. The most recent was a 25-3 win over the Houston Texans in Week 15.

When it comes to this game, the experts aren't exactly divided, however. SB Nation's panel of six experts -- Ryan Van Bibber, Joel Thorman, Jason Chilton, Stephen White, David Fucillo and Matt Ufford was unanimous in picking the Chiefs to hold at home.

Over at CBS Sports, the results are similar, though there is one holdout. Seven of the eight experts picked the Chiefs to win, including Pete Prisco and Jason La Canfora, and Will Brinson was the lone dissenter picking the Colts to score the upset.
