Colts vs Lions Free Pick

December 02, 2012

Today the Indianapolis Colts visit Detroit, Michigan and Ford Field to take on the Detroit Lions. The Colts have a record this season of 7-4 SU as well as ATS, while Detroit has disappointed fans with a record of 4-7 SU, while they are 5-6 ATS.

As we reach week 13 of the NFL season, many teams are jockeying for playoff position. The Colts, led by rookie quarterback Andrew Luck are playing much better than expected as Luck has lived up to his great hype. Indianapolis is currently leading the AFC wildcard race, while the Lions are holding on to their playoff hopes by a thread. Last season the Lions finished 10-6 and made the postseason but this year has been different.  

Detroit is 3-0 SU over their past three games, while Indianapolis is 4-1 SU over their past five contests. Nevertheless, the Lions have the most potent offense in the league in passing behind Matthew Stafford their fine quarterback. Indy’s defense against the pass is only 19th in the NFL and that is a weakness Stafford and his receivers will have to exploit.

Luck has put up very good numbers for a rookie with over 3,000 yards passing and 13 touchdowns. He has the Colts offense ranked no. 7 in the NFL in passing.

Stafford will have to take advantage of a weak passing defense and not turn the ball over, while the soft Detroit defense must contain Luck’s deep threats and stop the Colts’ running attack.

Currently the line has Detroit as the favorite at home by 6 points, with the point total for the over under resting on 51. I like the Lions to dominate in this game with Detroit winning big. Take the Lions and the OVER in a high scoring game.
