In the first wild-card game of the weekend, the home team is now a slight underdog.

According to multiple websites monitoring point spreads at Nevada sports books, the Chiefs are favored by 1-to-2.5 points as of early Saturday afternoon.

The Colts opened as 2.5-point favorites earlier in the week. A check of the Jim Feist, Marc Lawrence and ProFootballReference.com point spread archives shows that the Colts haven’t been a home underdog in a postseason game since at least moving to Indianapolis in 1984.

The Colts are hosting a playoff game for the first time since January 8, 2011, when they fell to the Jets 17-16. Indianapolis was a two-point favorite against New York.
