Andrew Luck and the Colts must pull off the upset in Oakland if they hope to stay in the playoff hunt. We serve up a betting preview with SU, ATS, and Total Picks.

Indianapolis Colts vs Oakland Raiders

Point Spread Value

If there is one thing Andrew Luck has over his counterpart, it's experience. When push comes to shove, Luck's been there and done that. Derek Carr for all he has accomplished in this impressive 2016 campaign, has yet to prove his merit as a clutch quarterback. That said, the Raiders are through to the playoffs but where they fall in the seeding remains to be seen. Colts are still hanging in the balance of the last two weeks of the season and must win out. Beating the Raiders has been no mean feat this season, but the Colts are 7-6-1 ATS with a 1.6 losing margin on average and +3.1 differential versus the spread. You sort do like the points with the Colts for week 16 NFL picks.

The Survivors

The Raiders are a stellar 11-3-0 SU on the season. Even a diehard fan couldn't have predicted the kind of campaign the Raiders have delivered. They are through to the playoffs but still need to win this game to make a run for the divisional title. The Colts though won't go down easily and Luck has plenty of experience to see his side through at the Coliseum. This is a tricky NFL pick but something about the upset with stakes so high appeals.

Game Total

The Raiders have been one of the highest performers in total betting markets this season with a 10-4-0 OVER record. Luck can put up the points like nobody's business too and they are 8-6-0 in O/U betting as a result. Not surprising, one of the highest total lines is on offer for this matchup and, quite likely, it's going to crack at the sports betting exchange.
