Overall Impression: The data favors the Colts, but there is not a massive difference between these two teams. This is a winnable game for the 49ers. However, the Colts’ defense has shown to be at least average. And the ability to create interceptions that can change the tide of games is high for the Colts as well. Thus I’d side with a victory for the Colts.
