Indianapolis Colts Under 20.5 Points Scored
The Colts’ offense has been an absolute disaster so far this season, as Indy averaged just 16.5 PPG and turned the ball over a whopping 17 times across their first nine games of the year, quickly resulting in the benching of Matt Ryan and the firing of head coach Frank Reich.
However, the hiring of interim head coach Jeff Saturday appeared to provide a spark for this squad, as the Colts handed the keys back to Ryan ahead of their Week 10 matchup against Las Vegas, and it’s worked out pretty well so far, as Indy scored 20.5 PPG and allowed just 18.5 PPG across a 1-1 split against the Raiders and Eagles in their latest two affairs.
So, I’ll back Indy to score less than 20.5 PTS here, as the Colts probably won’t be able to gain much traction against a Steelers’ defense that’s surrendered 18 PTS or less in three of their last five games, especially with TJ Watt back in the saddle for Pittsburgh after missing Weeks 2 through 9 with an injury.
Indianapolis Colts to Lose a Fumble
Indy’s offense has been virtually nonexistent so far this season, as the Colts enter Monday having scored 17 PTS or less in six of their last eight contests (15.3 PPG), and to throw another wrench into the equation, they also recently fired head coach Frank Reich and replaced him with what appears to be a very unprepared Jeff Saturday in Week 10.
I’ll back Indy to lose a fumble here, as the Colts have really struggled to protect the football this season, especially with Ryan under center, highlighted by Indy’s offense leading the league in turnovers with 19 on the year. And I think their due to lose another one on the ground after seeing Ryan fumble the ball a league-high 11 times prior to getting benched in Week 8.
Jonathan Taylor (IND) Over 79.5 Rushing Yards
Jonathan Taylor has posted surprisingly poor numbers after finishing second in the Offensive Player of the Year voting last year, highlighted by Taylor rushing 20 times or less for 76 yards or less in four-of-six outings to open the season.
However, things have certainly changed since Indy’s head-coaching switch, as Taylor has now rushed 22+ times for 84+ yards in back-to-back games since the transition from Reich to Saturday, while also punching in a touchdown in both of those contests.
So, I’ll back him to have another solid night here, as I’m not expecting the Colts’ offense to find much success in this matchup, but whatever success they do have, it’ll probably come through Taylor like it has the last two weeks.
