A spot in the NFL playoffs will be on the line when the Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans collide in a win-and-you’re-in Week 18 matchup on Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium. The Texans and Colts enter the game tied at 9-7 and would earn at least a wild card berth with a victory. If the Jaguars (also 9-7) lose to the Titans on Sunday, then the Houston vs. Indianapolis winner would also win the AFC South title and host a playoff game next week. The loser of Saturday’s game will be eliminated from playoff contention.
Kickoff is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET. Houston is a 1-point favorite in the latest Texans vs. Colts odds while the over/under for total points scored is 47.5. Before you make any Colts vs. Texans picks or NFL predictions, you need to see the NFL betting advice from the SportsLine Projection Model.
