Injury to watch: Tamba Hali, OLB, Kansas City Chiefs (Knee, Questionable)
The Chiefs defense is allowing an average of only 19.1 points per game. Part of that success has been linebacker Hali, who has 46 combined tackles, 11 sacks and leads the team in forced fumbles (4). Fellow LB Justin Houston, who has 41 tackles and 11 sacks, is expected to return from an elbow injury. Only two quarterbacks have taken more hits than Andrew Luck this season and the status of the Chiefs’ top pass rushers will play a huge factor.
The Chiefs are 1.5-point road underdogs against the Colts. The total is 46.
You can build a legitimate case for this one going Under based on the game that these teams played in Kansas City a little more than a week ago. The Colts’ defense put the hammer down on Kansas City’s offense, holding the Chiefs to just about 300 total yards.
But the Chiefs were crushed by turnovers in that game. Three fumbles were lost, and K.C. recovered three more of its own bobbles. Alex Smith also threw an interception.
All that won’t happen the second time around. The Chiefs should be fresh (most starters sat out the regular season finale) and figure to move the ball. Adjustments will be made and there should be some points scored in this one.
TREND Outright winner in NFL opening-round playoff games is 104-11-3 ATS since 1980 – an astonishing 89 percent cover rate. Simply put: Whoever wins, covers the spread in the opening round of the NFL postseason.
Kansas City at Indianapolis (-2.5, 46.5)
