The Indianapolis Colts (10-4) will be entering the weekend as favorites over the Pittsburgh Steelers (11-3) for the Week 16 matchup at Heinz Field.

The line hasn’t shifted since the Colts opened the week as two-point favorites and barring a change, it seems they will be heading into the weekend being viewed in the same light from BetMGM.

The spread hasn’t changed throughout the week, nor has the 44.5-point total. The Colts’ MoneyLine dropped slightly from -135 to -125 over the course of the week.

Both the Colts and the Steelers need this win badly. The Colts hold the No. 6 seed in the AFC playoff race but don’t hold any tiebreakers with the surrounding teams. There are a few ways the Colts can clinch a playoff berth this week but all require a win on Sunday.

The Steelers have already clinched their playoff spot but have been enduring a three-game skid that has many wondering if they are more of a pretender entering the playoffs.

With two strong defenses and veteran quarterbacks at the helm, this should be a tight game and one that will go a long way in determining the seeding for the AFC playoffs.
