Indianapolis Colts vs. Oakland Raiders Football Betting Online Odds
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
The Oakland Raiders have become the laughingstock of the NFL. After throwing money at a coach who hadn’t coached in god knows how long, things quickly began to spiral downwards for the Raiders. As of now, they are the worst team in the AFC West and arguably the worst team in the NFL. However, the Colts aren’t too far from that mark either. With that in mind, what kind of outcome will the football betting online odds predict for this weekend’s pairing? Let’s take a look at the NFL legal betting odds to find out.

Football Betting Online Odds:
The Colts ride into this weekend’s matchup sporting a 2-5 record that ranks them as the 4th worst team in the AFC South. However, since the 4-3 Houston Texans lead the division, Indy still has a sliver of hope of saving this season. It’s not much, and it will likely go away if they lose this Sunday’s match against the Raiders. Fortunately for Indy, the Raiders don’t currently look like they’re capable of beating anybody. On top of that, the Colts are 2-1 in their last 3 matchups against the Raiders. With that in mind, it’s clear that we can expect Andrew Luck to get the job done on the road this Sunday. Indianapolis is coming off a dominant 37-5 routing of the Buffalo Bills and will be eager to pick off another struggling team in Week 8.
Players to Watch: Andrew Luck (1,948 passing yards, 20 TD, 8 INT), Marlon Mack (249 rushing yards, 1 TD, 0 F), and Eric Ebron (357 receiving yards, 6 TD, 33 REC).
The Raiders step into this Week 8 pairing flashing a pitiful 1-5 record. Since they happen to share a division with the 5-1 Kansas City Chiefs, it’s pretty clear that the Raiders season is already over. Moving forward, the only real question is whether or not Oakland will decide to hang onto Jon Gruden. Gruden’s deal is for 10-years but we can’t imagine Oakland actually putting up with these type of results for that long. Albeit, Gruden will likely get some time to rebuild. But if he brings the same thinking process that got him to trade away Khalil Mack, we can already anticipate the Raiders becoming an even worse franchise. As for this Sunday’s matchup, Oakland will likely fall to 1-6 against Luck.
Players to Watch: Derek Carr (1,783 passing yards, 7 TD, 8 INT), Marshawn Lynch (376 rushing yards, 3 TD, 0 F), and Jared Cook (400 receiving yards, 2 TD, 32 REC).
