Raiders vs Colts 2019 NFL Week 4 Lines, Game Preview & Prediction

Written by on September 23, 2019

The Oakland Raiders have gotten off to a discouraging start through three games, but that’s not certainly not the case for an Indianapolis Colts team that has played some inspired football despite the stunning retirement of franchise quarterback Andrew Luck just prior to their regular season opener. Now, with both AFC-based teams looking to give their playoff hopes a big boost, let’s find out if the Colts can cover the chalk as a touchdown home favorite against the reeling Raiders.

Why Bet On Oakland at +7?

There’s only one reasons why anyone would bet on Oakland in this contest and it’s because they’re getting seven points as road dogs in this one. The Raiders have dropped two straight and come into this contest off a humbling 34-14 smackdown loss against Minnesota this past weekend. Quarterback Derek Carr passed for 242 yards with two touchdowns and one interception, but Oakland was held to just 88 rushing yards in the loss while Carr was sacked four times.

Why Bet On Indianapolis at -7?

The best reasons to back Indianapolis are because they’re playing at home and quarterback Jacoby Brissett clearly has what it takes to make it as an NFL starter. The Colts have won two straight and come into this contest off a 27-24 home win over Atlanta this past weekend that saw Brissett pass for an impressive 310 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. Indy held off a furious comeback attempt by the Falcons after jumping out to a 20-3 lead at the half.

Raiders vs Colts Expert Prediction & Pick

Oakland has been held to 14 points or less in each of the last two weeks while allowing 28 or more in each contest, so this is clearly a team that is deficient on both sides of the ball despite the series of offseason moves they made to upgrade their roster. Conversely, the Colts are playing solid football despite the huge loss of Andrew Luck and quarterback Jacoby Brissett and head coach Frank Reich have both had a huge hand in the Colts’ success.

The Raiders are 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games against a team with a winning home record while Indianapolis has gone 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win. Oakland is averaging a paltry 16.0 points er game to Indy’s 23.3 points per contest while giving up 26.0 points per game to the Colts’ 23.7 points per contest allowed. I like Indianapolis to get the double-digit win at home here to cover the chalk!

Pick: Indianapolis 28 Oakland 20
