Arizona (10-4 SU, 9-5 ATS) had a chance to seal their first postseason berth since 2015 this past Sunday, but they fell 30-12 to the last-place Detroit Lions as 13-point road favourites. Now they’ll need a victory this Saturday, plus some help elsewhere, to get the job done. DE Jordan Phillips (knee) and WR Rondale Moore (ankle) were both injured in Detroit; their status for Week 16 is up in the air, while star WR DeAndre Hopkins (knee) will miss the remainder of the regular season.

The Colts (8-6 SU, 9-5 ATS) have the rest advantage for this matchup after beating the New England Patriots 27-17 last Saturday as 1-point home favorites. Center Ryan Kelly (personal) didn’t play for Indianapolis despite coming off the COVID-19 list, but otherwise, the Colts have almost all their first-stringers ready for their playoff push. They’re one of several 8-6 teams tied for the three AFC Wild Card spots.
