Monday Night Football: Colts vs Jets Game Preview and OddsPublished December 5, 2016 by Sol FH
The AFC East meets the AFC South in tonight’s Monday Night matchup live at 1:30 GMT.
The Indianapolis Colts have dodged a bullet and it looks like Andrew Luck will be fit to play in tonight’s all-important Monday Night Football game against the New York Jets. The Colts (5-6) are in a tight race in the AFC South and a win tonight would put them in a tie with the Texans and the Titans. The Jets (3-8) are almost definitely out of contention for a playoff spot sitting dead last in the AFC East and on a three-game losing streak.
Andrew Luck will start tonight’s game after his concussion warning was lifted. Luck’s return is very important for the Colts, as his backup Scott Tolzien lost last week’s game against Pittsburgh. A win tonight could start the Colts’ efforts for a last season run and against the struggling Jets; this could very well be the case.
The Jets Defensive Line could be the thorn in the Colts’ side tonight. If you recall last year, the Jets blew out the Colts 20-7 in the home opener with Luck tossing up three interceptions due to forced passes. The Jets’ defense includes seven former first round picks and one of the fiercest D-lines that the Colts will have had to deal with all season.
The Colts should win this game and are the smart bet for punters looking to capitalize on the long line of betting markets at sportsbooks like bet365 Sports. The Colts are the favorites and a good call on the scoreboard should be 27-17.
