NFL Week 1 Free Pick: Take Indianapolis. According to latest NFL trends, the Colts are 6-0 against the spread in their last six home games and 4-1 ATS in their last five games on fieldturf. They're also 9-3 against the number in their last 12 games overall and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games versus AFC opponents. On the other side, the Raiders are 2-7 against the spread in their last nine games overall, 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games versus AFC opponents, and 2-6 against the number in their last eight games in Week 1.
The Raiders are severely devoid of talent on both sides of the ball and will be starting an inexperienced quarterback in Terrelle Pryor behind an awful offensive line. The Colts upgraded their offensive line in the offseason and Andrew Luck shouldn't have many problems moving the ball against a suspect Oakland defense.
