Wildcard Weekend Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills NFL Game Best Bets!
Always the bridesmaid but never the bride, both the Bills franchise and Colts QB Philip Rivers are looking to some find long-awaited success in the playoffs. The butt of most jokes, "nobody circles the wagon like the Buffalo Bills." The Bills are finally back to being one of the best teams in the NFL but will the pressure of past failures outweigh what the team has built all season long? Speaking of playoff failures Colts starting QB Philip Rivers has arguably had a Hall of Fame career, but he still has next to no playoff success on his resume and this could be his last chance to change that. Let's look at the best bets for today's game!
Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills
Bills -6.5 (-115)
This is a story of the old double trap game. This is an easy game to say the Bills will blow it in the playoffs again, but then it's also a perfect game for Philip Rivers to blow. So if you remove the double trap game and look at what the Bills' offense can do to even elite defenses and the fact that their own defense has stepped up as of late, you have to just trust the Bills and Josh Allen will put past failures in the past. Also, Bills Mafia is back for this game... Major game-changer.
Josh Allen (BUF) Over 25.5 Total Pass Completions (-118)
Speaking of Josh Allen, the Bills' elite offense has gone through him all year long and with how much the run game has struggled don't look for them to start running the ball now. Even in a loss, Allen will be hucking the ball all over the field.
John Brown (BUF) Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+150)
Brown finally made his return from injury.. then got covid then last week he finally played his first game since November. Brown is Allens favorite deep ball target and as the Steelers showed in their comeback victory, at times the deep ball can be a major weakness for this Colts defense. Look for Brown to get away for one.
Nyheim Hines (IND) Over 27.5 Total Receiving Yards (-118)
Averaging 30 yards a game this season Hines has the speed and playmaking ability to hit this prop with just one catch out of the backfield. If the Colts are chasing points look for Hines to be on the field more than the promising rookie RB Jonathan Taylor.
Anytime Touchdown scorer & Moneyline - Jonathan Taylor & Bills (+120)
Taylor has been on a scoring rampage as of late and while it has been against lower ranked run defenses, it doesn't change that anytime the Colts get close to the goal-line they have trust in handing the ball off to Taylor. I mean I already took Bills spread so the Moneyline shouldn't be a big surprise.
