The Detroit Lions will meet with the Indianapolis Colts in NFL action in Lucas Oil Stadium Indianapolis, IN, on Saturday, August 20, 2022, at 1:00 PM ET. Detroit lost to the Atlanta Falcons at home last Friday, 27-23, to start the preseason schedule.

Amon-Ra St. Brown, the starting wide receiver, caught two catches for a total of 29 yards during the opening drive. In order to secure a long-term future with the Lions, Goff is under pressure and must demonstrate his value.


During the regular season, Goff is anticipated to receive a ton of pass protection from Detroit’s strong offensive line while Swift will have plenty of openings. Since August of 2018, Detroit has not had a preseason victory.

Detroit Lions vs Indianapolis Colts Predictions 8/20/2022


Indianapolis‘ preseason schedule began with a 27-24 defeat to the Buffalo Bills, with the last frame being outscored 17-8. Matt Ryan, the team’s new starting quarterback, played in all four of the first possessions for Indianapolis.


The Colts’ top rusher from the previous year, Jonathan Taylor, did not take the field. Despite numerous opportunities, the offense headed by Matt Ryan only managed to score three points as a result of early mistakes that the Indianapolis defense instigated.


Ryan completed his longest pass, a 17-yarder to Michael Pittman Jr., for 58 yards. The Colts’ defense forced Buffalo into five turnovers, which became routine for them after finishing second in takeaways with 33 last year.


However, due to Matt Ryan’s and the Colts’ backups’ inability to score, field position after the turnovers was not utilized.


  • The Indianapolis Colts are 5-1 ATS in its last 6 matches on Saturday.
  • The UNDER cashed in each of the Colts’ last 5 matches.
  • The Colts are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Saturday matches.

Detroit Lions vs Indianapolis Colts. The NFL pick for this game is the Detroit Lions. In this one, I’m going to take a chance on the Lions.


Detroit’s offense performed relatively well in the first preseason game, but there are undoubtedly a few problems to fix.


The Lions were efficiently moving the ball with 393 total yards, 5.1 yards per play, 26 first downs, and a strong 10-of-17 on third- and fourth-down efforts.


Detroit had a limited number of penalties (four for 35 yards), but they did commit a few errors. The Lions are in a good position to cover their spread, but the rush defense needs to improve (168 yards allowed against Atlanta).


The Detroit Lions will win to a predicted score of 23-20.
