The NFL wraps up Week 15 with an important inter-conference matchup on Monday Night Football. The New Orleans Saints host the Indianapolis Colts in a game that both teams badly need. Conference and divisional games are the most important at this point, but playoff positioning is on the line for the 10-3 Saints, and the 6-7 Colts are simply looking to keep their playoff hopes alive.
The game kicks off at 8:15 p.m. on ESPN. The Saints are a 9.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook after opening at -8. The point total sits at 46. The Saints are -385 on the money line, while the Colts are +320.
The Colts are hoping to get T.Y. Hilton back, but his status is unclear as the practice week begins. The team placed fellow receiver Parris Campbell on IR and signed Dontrelle Inman to shore up the unit alongside Zach Pascal. Oh, and Adam Vinatieri had season-ending knee surgery. Meanwhile, the Saints lost their second leading pass rusher, defensive end Marcus Davenport, to a foot injury and have brought in Noah Spence to provide some depth. Tackle Terron Armstead’s status will be something to track this week as well.
We’ll be tracking everything for the game, from odds to fantasy. Check back here throughout for everything that goes down in a huge inter-conference matchup.
