Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills Final Betting Prediction
The Bills did put a whupping on the New York Jets. But we shouldn’t read too much into the victory. When Buffalo has faced a tough team, they’ve struggled.
On Sunday, the number one ranked defense in the NFL faces one of the better quarterbacks in the league. Colts signal-caller Carson Wentz is having a decent season.
Wentz has thrown for 2,378 yards and 17 TDs when completing 63.5% of his passes. He’s thrown just 3 picks and has managed the Colts’ offense with ease.
Buffalo can’t just stop Wentz on Sunday. They must deal with Indy’s rushing attack, which yields 136.3 yards per. The biggest problem Buffalo has in this game is turnover ratio.
The Colts have forced 21 turnovers this season. At times, Buffalo’s offense has become stagnant. It was nonexistent against both the Steelers in Week 1 and the Jaguars in Week 10. The Colts may field the best defense the Bills have played in 2021. So it makes sense to consider backing Indy on the moneyline.
