Indianapolis Colts vs. Philadelphia Eagles Prediction
We get treated to a unique game in Week 11 between two teams that seldom play each other. The Philadelphia Eagles will travel to the Midwest to face the newly-revamped Indianapolis Colts during the early afternoon window. It's been a series historically dominated by the Eagles, who have won the last three head-to-head matchups as favorites and underdogs on the road and at home.
The Colts sent the media into a frenzy with the sudden hiring of former Colts' Pro-Bowl center, Jeff Saturday, as their interim head coach after firing Frank Reich following a dismal blowout loss against New England. The Colts came out and played a solid game against the porous Las Vegas defense, icing the game with a 35-yard touchdown pass to Parris Campbell. Jonathan Taylor looked the part in his first game back with full health, logging 147 rushing yards and a touchdown, producing numbers that we grew accustomed to in 2021. Matt Ryan returned under center and went 21-of-28 for 222 yards, a touchdown, and zero turnovers. This is the brand of football that will allow the Colts to compete against most of its opponents down the stretch of the 2022 schedule.
Philadelphia's second-year head coach Nick Sirianni will return to Indianapolis after spending a few years as their OC. The run-centric scheme that Sirianni runs for the Eagles will be tested against the Colts' run defense, which is ranked tenth-best in the league. The pass defense is even better, ranking as a top-seven unit, and holding teams under 200 passing yards per game on average. Jalen Hurts and the Eagles are fresh off of a disappointing divisional loss at home in primetime against Washington, whose roster is constructed similarly to the Colts. The Eagles just signed a few pieces along its defensive line to bolster a 20th-ranked run defense, which is a huge concern facing a healthy Jonathan Taylor.
The Colts are 6.5-point home underdogs, which Saturday will use to rally the players to land a huge upset over one of the league's best teams. The Colts are better ATS at home, going 2-2, while the Eagles are only 1-3 ATS on the road. Since the Eagles have failed to cover the spread in five of their last six road games, along with the Colts' going 9-4 outright in their last 13 games, I like betting on the Colts to cover as 6.5-point underdogs at home.
Eagles vs. Colts Best Anytime TD Scorer Picks
Jonathan Taylor (-130). Bet $100 to win $176
Third-year running back Jonathan Taylor has popped against two bad run defenses this season, Houston and Las Vegas, meaning he's due for another big day at home against the Eagles. Despite being one of the best defenses in the league, the pass defense is where Philadelphia excels. Taylor will likely get another 20-25 touches on Sunday, which will be enough to find the end zone, especially averaging 4.7 YPC. It's juiced based on the plus matchup against the Eagles' run defense, but we're looking for bets that are locked and loaded. Betting on Taylor to score his third touchdown of the season, including his first at Lucas Oil Stadium, is as easy as it gets.
Devonta Smith (+135). Bet $100 to win $235
Devonta Smith has played second fiddle to A.J. Brown for most of the year, but the former Heisman-winning wideout is fresh off of his third touchdown reception against Washington. Yes, it was his birthday. However, Brown suffered a mild injury against the Commanders on Monday Night Football and he'll be getting blanketed by Stephon Gilmore and company on Sunday, which will open up more targets for Smith. Factor in star tight end Dallas Goedert being sent to Injured Reserve for at least four weeks, and Smith's outlook for finding the end zone jumps even higher. Miles Sanders and Hurts might be locked down on the ground against the Colts' tenth-ranked run defense, forcing Smith to handle a bigger workload than normal. Hammer Smith as an anytime touchdown scorer with a nice value at +135.
Parris Campbell (+225). Bet $100 to win $325
Let's dig into the slate and go for a big home-run hit with Parris Campbell as the third and final anytime touchdown scorer in this matchup. The fourth-year wideout has started nine games this season, managing to stay healthy for the first time in his career. Matt Ryan has established a good rapport with Campbell, which manifested in the two connecting for a game-winning 35-yard touchdown reception on the road against the Raiders in Week 10. Campbell has three touchdowns in three of his previous five games played, so while it's a tough matchup against the Eagles secondary, the absence of cornerback Avonte Maddox will be beneficial toward hitting this best-anytime touchdown scorer player prop bet. At +225, Campbell is a juicy play who is due to come through for us with his fourth touchdown of the season.
