A Closer Look At My Colts Vs Titans NFL Week 17 ATS Pick
Indy had been on a roll until last week by beating the Jaguars, Redskins, Browns and Texans, covering at minus-13 over Jacksonville and at minus-7 over Washington. The Colts had won four games in a row, going 2-1-1 ATS. Then last week they went to Dallas and folded like a lawn chair during the winter against the Cowboys last week. The 42-7 defeat matched the worse career defeat of 35 pointsby QB Andrew Luck.
"Yeah, it was a dismal start," said Andrew Luck, who threw for a season-low 109 yards with two interceptions and was pulled in the third quarter with the game out of hand. "It was bad. A lot of bad. Not much good, if any."

Luck has five total touchdowns and five picks in his last three games.
At 10-5 overall, the Colts are in a battle with the 10-4-1 Bengals for third seed in the AFC, which could be the difference between hosting the Steelers or the 6th seed which could be the Chiefs, Texans or Ravens on Wild Card Weekend.
Indy ranks third in the league in total offense, 19th in total defense and is 4-3 both SU and ATS on the road this season. Luck has thrown 4601 yards, 38 TDs & 16 INTs this season for a 95.4 passer rating. WR T.Y. Hilton is his number one target and a top 5 WR this season with 1345 yards & 7 TDs.
