Oakland Raiders vs Indianapolis Colts Odds

4-12TEAM RECORD11-5

The Indianapolis Colts, who pulled a neat trick last year by going from 2-14 to 11-5 and a playoff berth with a rookie quarterback, begin their second season with Andrew Luck when they host the Oakland Raiders Sunday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium (1 pm ET, CBS).

With a week to go before game-time, the Colts were favored by 10 points over the Silver and Black, who are searching for their first winning season in a decade.

Despite their success overall, the Colts have been a betting disaster in Week 1. They are 0-5 ATS past 5 Week 1 games. However, they have won and covered five straight as chalk and they are 10-point favorites here.

Oakland has lost 7 in a row as an underdog and only managed to cover one spread (1-6 ATS).
