The Indianapolis Colts came up just short in Week 6’s 34-27 loss to the New England Patriots and have continued their underwhelming play to start the 2015 season. The Colts effectively pulled off what’s being deemed as one of the worst plays in NFL history in that game on a 4th-and-two questionable call, leading many to believe the hot seat under Chuck Pagano just turned up a few more levels.
- The Saints are 7-2 SU in their last nine games against the Colts.
- The Colts are 9-3 SU and ATS in their last 12 games in October.
- The Colts are 15-4 SU and 14-5 ATS in their last 19 games after a loss.
The New Orleans Saints are set to invade Lucas Oil Stadium this Sunday and will be looking to build on a 2-4 SU record. It’s become quite clear the Saints are a team in transition, as Drew Brees isn’t getting any younger and rumors swirl regarding Sean Payton’s future with the team.
A porous defense that ranks last in the league hasn’t done New Orleans any favors, but luckily for the Saints, the Colts aren’t far behind at fourth last in that category.
