The Panthers are 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 games in December, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog and 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Colts are 1-6-2 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games in December and 2-5-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Panthers last 4 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Colts last 8 home games. The road team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.

Neither of these teams are playing well, but the Carolina Panthers are banged up as all hell and will be starting a rookie quarterback in Will Grier. The Indianapolis Colts don't have much to play for at this point, but they are getting guys back from injury and Jacoby Brissett should have the rust off after playing last week. The Carolina Panthers have scoring issues and limited weapons outside of McCaffrey, and that's even more of a issue when throwing out a young quarterback on the road in his first ever start. I'll take the Indianapolis Colts by a touchdown.
