Chiefs vs Colts Week 3 Game Info

2022 NFL Regular Season Game
Kansas City Chiefs (2-0, 1-0 Away) vs. Indianapolis Colts (0-1-1, 0-0 Home)
Date: Sunday, Sept. 25, 2022
Time: 1 p.m. ET
Venue: Lucas Oil Stadium — Indianapolis, IN
Coverage: CBS

Week 3 of the 2022 NFL season includes a showdown between the Kansas City Chiefs and Indianapolis Colts. Patrick Mahomes and co. proved that they're still the AFC West to beat in their 27-24 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2. Mahomes was his usual dynamic self, completing 24 passes for 235 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the Colts wish that Week 2 never happened after being shut out by the Jacksonville Jaguars, 24-0. Matt Ryan had his worst performance in a long time under center in defeat, tallying just 195 yards on 16-of-30 passing attempts while gifting the Jaguars with three interceptions.

Updated (Sunday, Sept. 25, 11:30 a.m. EST): Updated odds were provided from FanDuel Sportsbook. The line on this game moved in the Colts' favor, down to just 5.5 points. Additionally, the over/under point total ballooned to 51.5 points, up five points from the opening mark of 46.5.

The Chiefs enter this contest as the favorite on the moneyline and spread on FanDuel Sportsbook's updated odds. This 1 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 46.5, which is pretty average compared to this week's projected NFL totals. 

Chiefs vs Colts Prediction & Pick

Before the 2022 campaign started, the Colts were viewed as a team that could challenge the Chiefs in the AFC. That isn't quite the case after tying the Houston Texans before their embarrassing loss to the Jaguars. Even with the home town support on Sunday, this isn't a game that the Colts will likely win.

At the end of the day, the Chiefs are on a different level right now. They're better than the Colts on both sides of the ball and given that Ryan is finally showing his age, Mahomes shouldn't have trouble outdoing him under center. If Indianapolis' No. 1 wideout Michael Pittman is forced to miss his second straight game, things could get even uglier.

Final Score Prediction: Chiefs: 30 | Colts: 14

Chiefs vs Colts Betting Trends

- Kansas City is 13-2 straight up in its last 15 games.
- Indianapolis is 5-10 against the spread (ATS) in its last 15 home games.
- The total has hit the over in each of Kansas City's last five road games.
- The total has hit the under in five of Indianapolis' last six games against Kansas City.

Chiefs vs Colts Best Bet

Back in the preseason, predicting the Chiefs and Colts to hit over 46.5 points would be a no-brainer. However, Indianapolis' struggles put that in jeopardy. Additionally, the two sides have combined for an average of 38 points in the two games that Mahomes has faced the Colts in his career.

Unless the Colts' play-calling philosophy changes in the next few days, I expect the two teams to combine for the under here.

Bet: Under 46.5 Points (-110)
