The line on this game is set at Denver -5 as the Broncos come into Indianapolis undefeated. We do have a modest total of 45.5, which we believe could be a bit low and so does the betting public as we are seeing 65% of the action on the OVER.
As always, this is a highly anticipated meeting as Peyton Manning plays his old team, this time in Indianapolis. It is only his second time back since joining the Broncos. The last time Manning lost in Indy to a much better team than the struggling 3-5 squad he’ll face here. Denver has been victorious in only one of the last three meetings between these two teams since Manning left the Colts.
While Andrew Luck has played too inconsistently for us to suggest him for any Daily Fantasy NFL roster this day (especially against a tough Broncos pass defense), Peyton Manning ($6.3K) may have some of the best value of the day against a Colts defense that has allowed multiple touchdowns in five of eight recent games. Manning will likely have nominal ownership as well.
The Broncos elite run defense also makes Colts players irrelevant this day. Not so with the Colts, who have permitted the seventh-most points to opposing backs.
Ronnie Hillman ($4.6K) is the better running back here and priced right compared to other backs in the league. Hillman scored two touchdowns in his first start of the season last Sunday.
The Broncos rank in the top five against all receiver positions as well.
In conclusion, we do not see any reason to roster Colts players this week.
