Last year the Chiefs dominated the Colts in the AFC playoffs a demonstration of their team superiority. Indianapolis will again face the Chiefs at Arrowhead on Sunday. And they will do so without the services of retired quarterback Andrew Luck. The Colts offense has suffered badly without last year’s Comeback Player of the Year. By contrast, Kansas City has an offense that has proven to be an NFL betting asset. 2018 NFL MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes bailed the Chiefs out with a sensational week four comeback in Detroit. Furthermore, KC is showing an improved defense.
