COLTS (6-3) at TITANS (4-5), 8:25 p.m.

LINE: Colts by 3; O/U: 42


Admit it. When you perused last week's NFL Week 10 scores, didn't one result just jump off the page at you?

For me it was this one: St. Louis 38, Indianapolis 8. All I thought was: Wow!

I can't imagine things have been too pleasant around the Colts locker room for Andrew Luck & Co. on this short week as they prepare for a key AFC South road game against Tennessee.

The Titans are one of the NFL's biggest Jekyll & Hyde home-road teams, but in the opposite way you'd think: They are 4-0 against the spread (ATS) on the road and just 1-3-1 ATS at home.

Interestingly, Indy is one of the NFL's best bounce-back teams: The Colts are 10-1 ATS in their last 11 games after a loss and 3-1 ATS on the road this season. If I'm Indianapolis, I load the box against RB Chris Johnson and make QB Ryan Fitzpatrick beat me.

The money continues to back Indy at a more than 3-to-1 clip. Sometimes I like to fade that action. However, I can't resist the road team -- and better squad -- in this spot.
