The Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs entered the season as likely AFC contenders, but so far, they’ve landed on opposite sides of the coin.
The Chiefs have gone 2-0 with wins over the Cardinals and Chargers. The Colts, surprisingly, are 0-1-1 after tying the Texans and getting blanked by the Jaguars, 24-0.

Chiefs vs Colts Prediction
Chiefs 34, Colts 14
The Colts’ offense has been rendered useless against two relatively weak defenses, which doesn’t bode well for their chances of defeating one of the top offensive teams in the NFL. Matt Ryan has thrown just one touchdown to his four interceptions, and Jonathan Taylor only saw nine carries in their Week 2 loss to Jacksonville.
Star wideout Michael Pittman Jr. wasn’t available against the Jaguars, but it’s hard to imagine that the end result would have been much different had he played.
The Chiefs, on the other hand, have looked strong behind the steady hand of Patrick Mahomes, who’s thrown seven touchdowns without a single interception. He should have no issues leading his team to a relatively easy victory on the road in Indianapolis.
Chiefs vs Colts Bet Tips
After opening as 2.5-point favorites, the line has shifted dramatically in Kansas City’s favor. The Colts have not lived up to expectations thus far, which has seen them drop to nearly a touchdown underdog at home in Week 3.

Don’t overthink this one — back the Chiefs at (-115) odds.
They’ve looked the part of a true Super Bowl contender in the early part of the season, and until the Colts can prove that they’re more than a basement-dweller, there’s no reason to think that they’ll be able to compete with Kansas City.

The Chiefs and their second-place offense will do their job to score in this contest, but it’s hard to rely on a Colts team that’s averaging a league-worst 10 points per game. I have this one going just Under the projected total.
