  • Professional bettors are targeting NFL Wild Card Weekend, including Saturday's Indianapolis Colts-Houston Texans game (4:35 p.m. ET, ABC/ESPN).
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we've identified how sharp bettors are approaching this matchup.

Just because NFL games look like they’ll be entertaining doesn’t mean they will have interesting betting activity. The same goes for playoff games.

However, this week has had the whole shebang as there’s been no shortage of betting storylines on this nice slate of wild-card matchups.

Despite only four games on the slate, there’s been no shortage of action from wiseguys, including the latest round hitting the divisional showdown between the Colts and Texans.

Using The Action Network’s betting tools, let’s examine how smart money is approaching Colts-Texans.

After Indy opened at +3, steady Colts money has driven the point spread down to +1. That is old news though, as the line has remained at +1 for a whole day now.

Bettors have also taken note of the total, hitting the over/under hard on Wednesday morning. At 47/47.5, this game already opened with the highest total of the four games. Not high enough, apparently.

Sports Insights Bet Signals triggered a Steam Move on the over, causing the line to move up to 49. It had already been a popular side with 75% of bets, but it looks like pros are hopping on board as well.

Historically, NFL playoff games in domes have gone over the large majority of the time. Since 2003, overs are 28-9 in postseason dome games, winning by an average margin of 6.35 points according to our Bet Labs software.
