2013-10-03 07:14:11 - After easy victories last week, the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers have a key trend in their favor this Sunday
According to the sports handicapping website Vegas Experts, two NFL teams that are coming off blowout victories have a key trend that favors them as one of the best NFL picks for Week 5 action.
The two teams in question are the Indianapolis Colts and San Francisco 49ers, with both teams in prime position to further a trend that has seen 17 winners in 24 games dating back to the start of the 2010 season.
Through research conducted by the website, the opinion looks at teams that are coming off a divisional game in which it beat the final Las Vegas betting line on the game by 20 points or more.
Last Sunday, the Colts were 8.5 favorites and easily defeated the
Jacksonville Jaguars by a 37-3 score. Three days earlier, the 49ers won a 35-11 contest against an NFC West rival, the St. Louis Rams, as a three-point road favorite.
This weekend, Indianapolis may have difficulty in maintaining that record, since their opponent will be the undefeated Seattle Seahawks, with the Colts currently listed as a home underdog of 2.5 points in the non-conference matchup.
San Francisco will also be at home in an inter-conference game, but will be favored by a touchdown over the Houston Texans. The Texans have lost their last two contests after beginning the year with a pair of victories.
