Indianapolis Colts at Denver Broncos - 10/6/22 NFL Picks and Prediction

Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Indianapolis Colts will play the Denver Broncos in Week 5 of the NFL regular season on Thursday night at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colorado.

The Indianapolis Colts are 1-2-1 this season after they lost to Tennessee by a score of 24-17 in Week 4. Indianapolis held the Titans to 243 total yards, but turned the ball over three times in the loss. The Indianapolis offense is averaging 14.3 points per game with 252 passing yards per game and 87.8 rushing yards per game. Matt Ryan has thrown for 1,125 yards, five touchdowns, and five interceptions for the Colts this season. Jonathan Taylor (questionable) has rushed for 328 yards and one touchdown, while Michael Pittman Jr. has caught 20 passes for 224 yards and one touchdown for Indianapolis. The Indianapolis defense is giving up 21.3 points per game and 297 yards per game.

The Denver Broncos are 2-2 this season after they lost to Las Vegas by a score of 32-23 in their last game. Denver was held to 299 total yards and turned the ball over once in the loss. The Denver offense is averaging 16.5 points per game with 226.3 passing yards per game and 109.5 rushing yards per game. Russell Wilson has thrown for 980 yards, four touchdowns, and one interception, while also rushing for 51 yards and three touchdowns for the Broncos this season. Melvin Gordon III has rushed for 139 yards and one touchdown, while Courtland Sutton has caught 24 passes for 343 yards and one touchdown for Denver. The Denver defense is allowing 17 points per game and 284.8 yards per game.

Indianapolis is 12-3 ATS in their last 15 Week 5 games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games. The under is 9-0 in Indianapolis’ last 9 games. Denver is 11-4 ATS in their last 15 Thursday games and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games. The under is 11-4 in Denver’s last 15 games. The over is 10-4 in these two team's last 14 head-to-head meetings.

Indianapolis has struggled this season and only has one win, which came against the Chiefs in Week 3. Denver hasn’t looked much better, especially on offense, but does have two wins this season. The total is set a little too high for me in this game, especially because both teams have only combined for 43 points or more in one of their eight games this year. Take the under here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
