Football Playoffs Betting: 1/15/06 Pittsburgh Steelers At Indianapolis Colts

As we saw this past Saturday, teams coming off a bye week might come off a little rusty, but as the game wore on, the ‘better’ showed its’ true colors. In this rematch of two NFL powerhouses, the Colts entertain the Steelers this Sunday afternoon as a 9.5 point home favorite.

The Colts come into this matchup off a bye week and have been resting its’ starters for the past couple of games. I expect them to come into this game firing on all cylinders, making a statement and validating their #1 seed in the AFC.

The Steelers, on the other hand, have become public darlings since their demolition of the Bengals last Sunday. Note, however, that this was Bill Cowher’s first road ufabet ทางเข้าบอลสเต็ปplayoff win in quite some time. I expect them to match Indy’s firepower in the first half, but tail off in the second part of the game. They will be totally outmatched in this game, and I do not fear laying the almost double digit spread in this game.

With the Patriots losing Saturday, the Colts can gain an extra sense of confidence that their bigger and badder brother are out of this playoffs. The stage is set for them to run the table now and they know it. Expect them to be fired up against a beated and battered Steelers team.
