The Indianapolis Colts will be one of the biggest favorites of NFL opening weekend when they play host to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. After opening the week as 7-point favorites, the line has since moved to 10 points with some sports books pegging the Colts as 10½-point favorites according to Oddsshark.com.
Of all of the games listed by Odds Shark, only the New England Patriots are bigger favorites over their opponent, with sports books giving the Buffalo Bills 11 points at home. The Colts are expected to be a strong team after going 11-5 last season, but perhaps even more so the Raiders are expected to be one of the league's worst teams this season. They currently ranked dead last on SB Nation's initial power rankings.
The over/under for Sunday's game has been set at 47 points, which would have the Colts winning something to the tune of 29-19. The Colts went 11-5 against the spread last season, and 7-1 at home. The Raiders were 5-11 against the spread, and 3-5 on the road.
