Terry McLaurin and Curtis Samuel have combined for 780 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Antonio Gibson has 22 receptions.

The Commanders are 3-1-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games in October.

The under is 11-1 in Colts last 12 games overall. The Commanders are 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The home team is 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

I'm not running to the window to back either of these teams, but I'm certainly not laying chalk with either side. As bad as the Washington Commanders have been this season, the Indianapolis Colts haven't been any better, and now they're playing a quarterback for the first time. No, thanks. If forced to pick this contest, I'm going to grab the free field goal. Give me the Washington Commanders.
