The Indianapolis Colts will travel to Nevada this weekend for a meeting with the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, Nov. 13, at 4:05 p.m. ET.
Plenty has changed for the Colts since we saw them last, including the appointment of NFL veteran Jeff Saturday as the team’s interim head coach. Surprisingly, they have a better record than the Raiders, who are just 2-6 on the season.
Let’s take a closer look at my Indianapolis vs Las Vegas best bets and predictions for Week 10.
Colts vs Raiders Odds
As of Tuesday, Nov. 8, at 2 p.m. ET, the Colts are 6.5-point underdogs at BetRivers Sportsbook. The total is set at 42.5 points. Both of these figures seem about in line with what I’m expecting from this matchup.
Colts vs Raiders Implied Totals
Raiders 24.5, Colts 18
As of Tuesday, Nov. 8, the oddsmakers have the Raiders winning by nearly a touchdown in what should be a relatively average-scoring game.

Colts vs Raiders Prediction
Raiders 23, Colts 9
There are a lot of questions surrounding this Colts team right now, and they start at the top. Indianapolis fired coach Frank Reich earlier this week and replaced him with Saturday, whose coaching experience is limited to the high school level. According to Jim Irsay, though, that’s a good thing.
Because of that, it’s impossible to say what we’ll see from this offense on Sunday. It’s hard to believe that it could get much worse for the Colts, seeing as they already rank dead-last in scoring, but I have a feeling they may truly outdo themselves this week.
Meanwhile, the Raiders are riding a two-game losing streak into this one, including an embarrassing defeat to the Jaguars last week that saw them blow a 17-point lead. Las Vegas, which went 10-7 last year, is at risk of falling even further behind in the AFC West should they find another way to lose to Indianapolis.
Fortunately for the Raiders, I don’t see that happening. The Colts’ Sam Ehlinger-led offense is a disaster, and although Las Vegas has the sixth-worst scoring defense in the league, I don’t see many touchdowns in Indy’s future.
