NFL Football Indianapolis Colts at Green Bay Packers Start Time, NFL Odds, Free Pick

The Green Bay Packers are hosting the Indianapolis Colts in NFL Football action today. The game is scheduled for a 4:25 p.m. start time and it will be televised live on CBS. The NFL Odds for the game have the Packers listed as a favorite to pick up the win.

NFL Odds
Green Bay -7.5
Total: 54.5 points

The Packers are laying more than a touchdown here at home against the Colts, a big number considering they are coming off a loss to Atlanta last week. Despite that loss the Packers are still above .500 for the season at 4-3 and sit behind the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North. Indianapolis, on the other hand, plays in arguably the worst division in football and they are only 3-5.

Green Bay should be able to expose the Colts defense, which ranks 29th best in the league. Aaron Rodgers hasn't looked like himself this season but did have a big week against Atlanta, completing 73 percent of his passes and throwing for four touchdowns. The emergence of Davante Adams at receiver has been a big positive for Green Bay, he leads the team in receptions (40) and yards (424) that adds to an already strong group of receivers.

Andrew Luck and the Colts can score points, but playing outdoors where it should be cold and rainy could be a problem for them. Luck is getting sacked at an alarming rate (31 times this season) and Green Bay has been strong up front on the defensive end, especially against the run, yielding just over 74 yards per game on the ground. The Colts aren't a good running team and it's likely they are one dimensional in this one.

Rodgers and the Packers are 3-1 in home games this season, the Colts are only 1-3 on the road.

Free Pick: Green Bay
