The Indianapolis Colts blanked the Cincinnati Bengals 27-0 at home back in October, but the OddsShark Computer thinks the score will be closer when they meet again on Sunday in a Wild Card Weekend matchup at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The OddsShark Computer has produced a projected score of Indianapolis 27.0, Cincinnati 26.1 for their game early on Sunday afternoon. That would give the Colts the SU but not the ATS victory – as of Monday night they were listed as 4-point favorites on the betting lines.

The other Wild Card Weekend matchup on Sunday has the Dallas Cowboys hosting the Detroit Lions at AT&T Stadium, and the OddsShark Computer has Tony Romo and company picking up a 30.9 to 23.8 victory in that contest. That wouldn’t provide a cover for Cowboys supporters at their -8.5 line as of Monday night.
On Saturday afternoon the Carolina Panthers will get a visit from the Arizona Cardinals at Bank of America Stadium, and the OddsShark Computer has the road team pulling out an 18.1 to 17.2 victory in that game. The oddsmakers, however, have the Panthers set as 7-point home favorites as of Monday night.
And on Saturday night the Baltimore Ravens will be at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh to face the Steelers, with the OddsShark Computer projecting a 33.1 to 28.8 win for the home team. That would give the Steelers both the SU and the ATS victory, as they sit as 3-point favorites as of Monday night.
