NFL Week 12: Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Indianapolis Colts Best Bets and Predictions--Indiana Sports Betting
The red-hot Colts will be taking on Tom Brady and the Buccaneers this Sunday in what should be one of the best games of the week. The Colts are currently on a three-game winning streak, most recently beating the Buffalo Bills 41-15. Most of their success has been due to their young star running back Jonathan Taylor, who has accrued 473 rushing yards and scored 8 touchdowns in just his last three games. It will be interesting to see how Taylor fairs this weekend, considering The Buccaneers defense has allowed the fewest rushing yards in the NFL.
The Buccaneers have had a rough go at it recently losing 2 of their last 3 games, and have had their run game stifled in all three. What was once one of the most feared running back duos in the NFL, Leonard Fournette and Ronald Jones have looked horrible lately, combining for only 154 rushing yards and one touchdown in this three-game skid. Luckily, the Buccaneers have one of the most dominant passing offenses in the entire league, and the Colts are in the bottom-third when it comes to passing yards allowed per game. Tom Brady should be able to do whatever he wants out there on the field, and it’ll be up to the Colts to keep up.
I love looking at prop bets on NFL Sunday--they keep you so invested in the game and always some of the most exciting bets to watch unfold. One prop bet that I love for this weeks matchup is for Tom Brady to throw OVER 2.5 touchdowns (+134). The Colts defense has allowed the most passing touchdowns in the entire league this season, and coincidentally Tom Brady leads the league with 29 touchdown passes thrown. It’s no surprise that Tom Brady has no problem finding the endzone, so I really see him exploiting this weak Colts secondary.
Another bet that I love this weekend is Tom Brady to Attempt OVER 38.5 passes (-114). Brady has attempted over this number in all but three games so far this season, and seeing how weak the Buccaneers running game has been recently, I wouldn’t be surprised if Tampa relies heavily on their passing game.
As it stands today, the Buccaneers are 3.5 point favorites over the Colts and the game total stands at 53. I really think the Buccaneers should win this game fairly comfortably, and spoil the hot stretch the Colts have been on recently. Although the Bucs are 4-6 against the spread coming into this game, I feel comfortable laying the 3.5 points as well. I think Tom Brady is going to have a classic Tom Brady game, and the Buccaneers defense will bring Jonathan Taylor back down to earth a bit. This will be a fun game to watch in real-time though, and if you find yourself in Indiana and want to bet on your Colts while the game is going on, here are some live-sports betting tips from our NFL expert.
All in all, here’s what my slip will look like for this week 12 matchup:
Buccaneers Moneyline (-188)
Buccaneers -3.5 (-112)
Tom Brady to throw OVER 2.5 Touchdowns (+134)
Tom Brady to attempt OVER 38.5 passes (-114)
