INDIANAPOLIS, IN (The Spread) – The Indianapolis Colts look to start the season on a strong note at home when they host the Oakland Raiders on Sunday at 1PM ET on CBS.

View Current NFL Odds

Indianapolis had a surprising season a year ago, going 11-5 overall and 11-5 against the spread while hitting the under 10 times. Oakland was just 4-12 last season while going 5-11 against the spread and hitting the under 9 times.

Trends show that the Colts have covered the spread in their last 6 home games and in 8 of their last 11 conference games. Oakland is just 2-8 ATS in its last 10 games on fieldturf.

According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, Indianapolis is the clear favorite in this game, as the Colts have odds of -10 points against Oakland. The over/under total for the game has been set at 47 points (View Matchup). The opening odds for this game had Indianapolis favored by 7.5 points. The spread has made the steady climb up, locking in at the Colts -10. The over/under total opened at 48.5 points and has since made a slow fall back to 47.

The Colts couldn’t have asked for much more from last season given all it went through with new coach Chuck Pagano. Indy got a tremendous rookie season out of quarterback Andrew Luck, who threw for 4,374 yards and 23 touchdowns and veteran receiver Reggie Wayne had a great year, catching 106 passes for 1,355 yards and five scores. Luck did throw 18 interceptions, but that should cut down in his second season. The Colts didn’t have a tremendous presence on the ground last season, but that could improve with the addition of running back Ahmad Bradshaw from the Giants. The Colts will need to improve on their defense, as they allowed 24.2 points and 374.3 yards per game last year.

Oakland comes into the season without a lot of optimism due to an interesting preseason. The Raiders traded for Matt Flynn in the offseason, expecting him to be the starter. But, a poor showing in the preseason combined with an injury has forced Oakland to turn to Terrelle Pryor to lead the offense. While it won’t likely lead to a lot of great passing stats, it could boost a rushing offense that was 28th in the NFL a year ago. Darren McFadden is back in the backfield, but has struggled to stay healthy for a full season. Defensively, Oakland gave up 27.7 points per game a season ago. That will need to improve if the Raiders hope to contend for the playoffs.

Bet on NFL Week 1 Odds

In terms of Injuries, Indianapolis tight ends Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allen are both probable despite lower body injuries. Oakland kicker Sebastian Janikowski is questionable due to a calf injury.

The Public Bets for this game are currently backing the Colts, as Indy is getting 83% of the wagers with odds of -10 points against the Raiders on Sunday.
