The Pittsburgh Steelers will look to redeem themselves with a win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 15, both entering this matchup with their potential at a playoff run on the line. The game will be featured as part of the NFL’s Saturday lineup for Week 15, kicking off from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis on Saturday, December 16 at 4:30 p.m. ET, airing on NFL Network.

Heres a look at the odds for the Steelers-Colts matchup in Week 15 as of Tuesday, December 12.

Steelers vs. Colts Week 15 odds

Point spread: Steelers +2.5
Over/under: 42
Moneyline odds: Colts -135, Steelers +114

Unsurprisingly, considering their status as the visiting team and recent performance, the Steelers enter this matchup as 2.5-point toad underdogs, with the point total set at 42.

Despite these two teams sitting in contention for a Wild Card spot, each with a 7-6 record heading into Week 15, it feels like these rosters are on very different trajectories. While the Steelers have lost back to back games against 2-10 teams, the Colts have been surging, winning four of their last five games. Despite the loss of their starting quarterback, rookie Anthony Richardson, as well as injuries to star running back Jonathan Taylor, the Colts continue finding ways to win, which could set the Steelers up for a much bigger challenge than they’d anticipated just a few weeks ago. Look for QB Gardner Minshew to continue dealing to leading receiver Michael Pittman in Week 15, supplemented by Zack Moss in the run game with the probably absence of Jonathan Taylor due to a finger injury.

With Steelers quarterback Kenny Pickett out again in Week 15 following ankle surgery, the team will roll with Mitch Trubisky as their starting quarterback, having thrown for 190 passing yards, a touchdown and a pick in Week 14 — his first start since 2022. Though Trubisky had his ups and downs, another week of practice with the ones might serve him well. Having played on Thursday Night Football in that outing, the few extra days of rest and planning for both the offense and the defense could be just what the Steelers need to break their slump.
