Analysis
The first game of the postseason features a pair of divisional rivals. DeShaun Watson and the Houston Texans look to take down Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts. This is expected to be a very tight game, and the spread shows that. In the end, we expect Luck to come out on top.

I'm a little worried about the shorter turnaround for Indy, which had to play Sunday night and then travel for the early Saturday game. But overall the Colts' resume is superior and especially when it comes to protecting their quarterback.

Analysis

QB Andrew Luck’s two most productive yardage games this season occurred against Houston. Hard to see it happening again, not with DE J.J. Watt having a banner year even by his standards. On the other side, DeShaun Watson is the league’s most sacked QB, going down a dozen times against the Colts. Indy has been Under in five of its past seven games, the same rate for Houston on recent home dates. Here are points tallied in the Texans’ four wild-card outings: 41, 32, 30, 41. Those numbers do not come close to this total.

The Texans will be looking for Andrew Luck to throw all the time, and that's why Marlon Mack will have a big game. Everybody talks about Houston's defense but Indy's defense is playing great; they're good in all areas.

Analysis

It's time to get on the Colts' bandwagon. They've been underrated by oddsmakers all season, and they get a good matchup here against a Texans team that Andrew Luck has passed around, through and over twice this season. Houston's defense needs to pressure the QB to be successful, but no QB has been hit less or sacked fewer times than Luck.

A couple hiccups as of late by Houston -- including last month against Indianapolis -- have the Texans at a nice value as a slim home favorite. This is one of the toughest decisions of the season for me as some of the numbers are pointing me in a direction other than my gut has told me for the last week.

Analysis

The Colts are playing much better defensively right now than the Texans. When you look at the offensive side of the ball, both Andrew Luck and Deshaun Watson tend to put the ball in harm's way a bit more than you'd like, but if it came down needing a 'big play' in a crucial situation, you have to trust Watson.
