Stephen Nover's Total of the Week
(NFL) Baltimore vs. Indianapolis, 10/05/2014 9:00 AM, Score: 13 - 20
Total: 47.50 | -103.00 Under
Result: Loss
Now that Colts offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton has taken the shackles off Andrew Luck the Colts are one of the higher scoring teams and Luck has emerged as an MVP candidate.

The Colts are leading the NFL in scoring at 34 points a game and are second in yards per game at 444. Luck has thrown for eight touchdowns and 763 yards in the last two weeks. The Colts' ground attack is improved this year and the Ravens' defense is far less intimidating away from home.

Baltimore's offense has picked up with solid running back depth and Steve Smith upgrading the receiving corps. Joe Flacco has a strong arm and should be able to move the ball on a mediocre Indy defense who have been lucky enough to face the Jaguars and Charlie Whitehurst-led Titans the last two weeks.

This game is on a fast track, too, being played at Lucas Oil Stadium.
