N.Y. vs. vs. Indianapolis Conference Championship Playoff Round Preview

NFL Betting – Jets look to ride momentum into Indy

Super Bowl odds had the New York Jets as a longshot, but anyone who took the chance will be on the edge of their seats when the Jets head to Indianapolis for a meeting in the AFC championship game against the Colts, who had their unbeaten season ruined by the Jets.


Jets vs Colts betting – Sunday, January 24, 3:00 PM ET

The Jets took advantage of a San Diego meltdown in a 17-14 win on the road as the Chargers missed three field goals and committed 10 penalties. The Jets ran for 169 yards, punctuated by Shonn Greene’s 53-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter to put the game way. Mark Sanchez was 12-of-23 for 100 yards, a touchdown and a pick for the Jets, who were able to keep their rookie quarterback safe for another week, which led to another NFL betting upset.

The Colts forced four turnovers in a 20-3 win over Baltimore at home, and Peyton Manning had another efficient game, going 30-of-44 for 246 yards, two touchdowns and a pick. The Colts were 2-of-3 from inside the red zone, while stopping the Ravens on both of their attempts from inside the 20-yard-line. Much was made about the Colts’ decision to rest their starters late in the season, but rookie coach Jim Caldwell is looking like he made a great decision as the Colts came out rested.

The Colts are a 7.5-point home favorite according to bookmaker odds (bookmaker reviews), and they’ve won six of their last 10 against the Jets. You can’t put too much stock in the Jets’ 29-15 win in Indianapolis in Week 16, as the Colts took their starters out with a five-point lead in the third quarter, which sparked a New York comeback. Manning was 14-of-21 for 192 yards before going to the sidelines, and he’s had success against coach Rex Ryan’s defenses when he was in Baltimore.

The Colts need to do what the Chargers failed to do: put eight players in the box to stop the Jets’ ground game, which has averaged 170.0 yards in their first two playoff games, and dare Sanchez to beat them. The Indy front seven was all over the place against the Colts, and they can confuse Sanchez if they get enough pressure on him.

The Jets are on a roll, but the buck stop in Indy.
