Indianapolis Colts vs. Oakland Raiders – Week 16 Picks And Predictions

Both of these teams had a nightmarish Week 14. Indianapolis Colts lost to the Houston Texans and now are in a pretty tough spot. If they want to win the division, they need to win both of their last games while the Texans need to drop both. Oakland lost to the Chiefs, but Kansas City failed to make the most of the opportunity that they created for themselves with that victory. Week 15 was good for both squads, especially for the Raiders who are back at the top of the AFC West.

Colts were great against the Vikings in the past round. The offense had a great day against Zimmer’s defense. Indianapolis also had the best defensive game of the season as Sam Bradford and his weapons couldn’t get anything going on Sunday. Raiders defense is much worse than Vikings’ one, and we expect Andrew Luck to step up and put his team in the best position to win.

Raiders’ victory in San Diego was not convincing, but they needed to get back into the winning column after a loss in Kansas City. Derek Carr and his offense should have a much better day at home, against the Colts who are not known as defensive stoppers.

It’s going to be a high-scoring match in which both teams have something to play for. Raiders are a better squad and we expect Derek Carr to outgun Andrew Luck and put up monster stats and a lot of points on the board. We are picking the Oakland Raiders to win this duel 35:28. With this victory, they will make a big step towards having a bye week during Wild Card weekend. Also, they haven’t won the division in a while, so that will also mean a lot to this fanbase that is hungry for success. They have waited a long time to have as good of a team as they have now.
