The Indianapolis Colts play the Las Vegas Raiders Sunday. Here are the odds and a prediction for the Week 17 matchup.
The Indianapolis Colts have been dominant on the field, defeating two of the NFL’s best teams in consecutive weeks. Indy is now 9-6 and in possession of the top Wild Card spot, standing fifth in the AFC.
With a Week 17 victory, the Colts can clinch a playoff spot, but it won’t be easy. Indianapolis is battling a COVID outbreak on the team and a number of players’ availability, including Carson Wentz, will be in question.
Additionally, Indy will be facing the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders are 8-7 and sitting just outside of playoff seeding. They will be desperately playing for a win in hopes of jumping into the playoff picture.
Colts vs Raiders odds Week 17
According to the odds at WynnBET, Indianapolis is the favorite at -360 (bet $360 to win $100). Las Vegas on the other hand is the underdog with +280 odds (bet $100 to win $ 280). Even with Indy’s COVID battle, oddsmakers expect the team to stay on a roll.
The spread for this game is set at 7 points with -110 odds for both teams. This means a $110 bet on the Colts to win by eight or more points gets you $100, while a $110 bet on the Raiders to not lose by more than six points gets you $100.
The over/under for this game is set at 46 with odds of -110.
Colts vs Raiders Week 17 Prediction
As the game approaches, Indianapolis will likely get more of its players back from the COVID list, which means Indy will be able to play with the majority of its starters. If that’s the case, they should pick up another win on Sunday.
The Colts are playing on another level right now and the Raiders don’t match up well with them. With the playoffs being in arm’s reach, expect Indianapolis to go out and get the job done.
