Colts vs. Cardinals Betting Predictions:
Spread – I like the Colts tonight to beat the small spread of 2.5 points against the Arizona Cardinals. I look for Peyton Manning to out duel Kurt Warner, with the Colts defense prevailing. The colts must be able to cover the Cardinals weapons at wide receiver in order to maintain possession of the football throughout the ball game. Look for Peyton Manning to step up tonight in order to maintain his teams status as a powerhouse in the AFC.
Over/Under – I like the over 48.5 total points in tonight’s ball game. Tonight’s game contains more offense than any other match up this week, with two proven quarterbacks at tonight’s helm. Although the defenses are not terrible, the offenses on both sides of the ball are more than able to dominate tonight’s game. Bet on the under 48.5 total points.
