Point spread, total, money line, injury report and more for Colts-Bucs in Week 14

Mack is back, but the Bucs rush defense is no joke. Can Brissett step up? We break down notable odds, including the point spread, trends, and ATS history.

A few weeks ago, the Indianapolis Colts were in strong contention to fight for the AFC South title. But two division losses in a row will squash those hopes for just about any team. And while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers aren’t in a spot to reach for a playoff berth, they’re currently on a two-game winning streak. This matchup is definitely a tale of opposite form, but similar season trajectories, so it will be interesting to find the right bets.

Fortunately for the Colts, they’ll likely be getting their rushing star back in action this week. After missing two weeks due to a hand injury, Marlon Mack (DFS salary $6,000) is shaping up to play in full in Florida. Unfortunately for the Colts (and Mack), the Bucs are allowing the second-fewest rushing yards per game. Jacoby Brissett ($6,100) will be forced to actually throw the ball, something he does very sparingly.

As for the opposition, well, he throws the ball a fair amount. Jameis Winston ($6,400) has thrown the second-most attempts for the second-most yards of all quarterbacks this season. The Colts’ slightly-above average pass defense will want to generate some turnovers to gain back any momentum the team had earlier this season. It just so happens Winston is a turnover machine, throwing 20 interceptions, five more than the next closest quarterback.
