Indianapolis at Arizona
Sunday 11/24 04:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Game Total OVER 44 -108 (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: WIN
While the Arizona Cardinals are getting into the playoffs hunt, the Indianapolis Colts are at 7-3 and likely to make their second straight appearance with Andrew Luck at QB. Arizona has become a player with three straight wins, pulling them to 6-4. QB Carson palmer is hard to live with sometimes, but the reality is, the Cards offense has been much better with him. If you look at Arizona's last 12 games a year ago, they scored 20 points or more just once. This season with Carson at QB, the Cards have scored 20+ in 8 of 10 games, including each of their last six. The defense has played well, but against winning teams they have allowed 24.8 ppg and if you take out the Carolina game (before the Panthers started clicking), it is 29.5 ppg. Indy has scored 20+ in 16 of their last 19 games, so I expect both sides to get over the 20 mark in this game. Arizona is 66-29-1 to the OVER in their last 96 games after totaling more than 350 yards in their last one. Make the play on the OVER.
