NFL lines and odds Week 7: Colts narrow favorite over Browns

The Colts are favored over the Browns at home on Sunday by less than a field goal.

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Indianapolis Colts and Cleveland Browns each enter Sunday's matchup coming off of surprising results in Week 6. The Colts were crushed on the road by the New York Jets last week, a week after a stunning upset of the Green Bay Packers at home. The Browns, meanwhile, are fresh off a road upset of the Cincinnati Bengals, which was their first win of the season. As such, Indianapolis will be only a 2.5-point favorite over Cleveland on Sunday.

The line opened with the Colts as 3.5-point favorites, but has dipped a point over the week. Despite being the owners of a 1-5 record, the Browns have performed well against the spread this season, going 3-2-1. The Colts, meanwhile, are 2-3, and have an identical record against the spread.

The current over/under for the game is 45 points, which indicates that Vegas doesn't have much confidence in either team's offense. So far through the 2012 season, the teams have given up a combined 56.2 points per game, a far cry from the over/under.
