The Indianapolis Colts will play the New York Giants on Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The Indianapolis Colts are 4-10-1 this season after they lost to the Chargers by a score of 20-3 in their last game. Indianapolis only gained 173 total yards and turned the ball over three times in the loss. The Indianapolis offense is averaging 16.5 points per game with 207.1 passing yards per game and 102.8 rushing yards per game. Nick Foles has thrown for 143 yards and three interceptions for the Colts this season. Zack Moss has rushed for 177 yards, while Michael Pittman Jr. has caught 90 passes for 854 yards and two scores for Indianapolis. The Indianapolis defense is giving up 23.8 points per game and 328.3 yards per game.

The New York Giants are 8-6-1 this season after they lost to the Vikings by a score of 27-24 in their last game. New York out gained Minnesota by a total of 445-353, but turned the ball over two times in the loss. The New York offense is averaging 20.7 points per game with 188.3 passing yards per game and 144.9 rushing yards per game. Daniel Jones has thrown for 3,028 yards, 13 touchdowns, and five interceptions, while also rushing for 617 yards and five touchdowns for the Giants this season. Saquon Barkley has rushed for 1,254 yards and 10 scores, while Darius Slayton has caught 44 passes for 710 yards and two touchdowns for New York. The New York defense is allowing 22.6 points per game and 366.3 yards per game.

Indianapolis is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 January games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games following a loss. The under is 15-5 in Indianapolis’ last 20 games. New York is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 20-9-1 ATS in their last 30 games against a team with a losing record. The under is 4-1 in New York’s last 5 January games. The over is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Indianapolis limps into this game after being dominated in their last game and they haven’t won any of their last five games. New York is looking to lock up a playoff spot and will be playing at home. I expect New York to come out strong and win this game easily against a bad Colts team.
