A big AFC South matchup takes us to Indianapolis as the second place Colts host the third place Tennessee Titans. Both these teams trail the Houston Texans by one in game in the hotly contested South.
Tennessee enters play at 6-5 and in third place in the AFC South. A win Sunday would see the Titans overtake Indianapolis for second place in the division and almost allow Tennessee to control their own destiny. The Titans are one of four 6-5 teams battling for the final AFC Wild Card spot.
Indianapolis also enter play at 6-5, but sit in second place in the South thanks to the head-to-head advantage over the Titans. A win Saturday, couple with a Texans loss to the Patriots, would see Indianapolis be tied atop the South. The Colts are another one of those four 6-5 teams vying for the final AFC Wild Card spot.
Below is my best bet for the Tennessee Titans at the Indianapolis Colts. All lines are from FanDuel Sportsbook
