The Oakland Raiders will take on the Indianapolis Colts at their home in the NFL Week 4 Sunday game. While the Colts have quickly recovered after losing their first game without Andrew Luck, the Raiders are still having a tough time to perform without Antonio Brown. The Colts are looking strong and are fresh off two victories while the Raiders lost their last two games.
NFL Week 4 will prove up to be an actual test for most of the teams with many streaks breaking down and new records forming up. Here are the reasons why we believe that the Colts can continue their magic against the Raiders on Sunday.
Reasons why Colts can beat the Raiders
The Colts were struggling in the season opener against the Chargers but now they have very well adjusted with Jacoby Brissett. Everyone thought that it would be tough for team Indianapolis without Andrew Luck but Brissett has been doing well in their offensive line as the starting quarterback.

The Raiders are worst in their pass-rushing department and have only made five sacks in their first three games. Colts vs Raiders game will be more of a battle between the two quarterbacks and Derek Carr has not shown any impressive play this season. The Colts can also win in the trenches as their defensive side is way better than the Raiders.
Colts vs Raiders: Betting Odds and Predictions
The Raiders are not that bad as they have been in the 2019 NFL season but their offense seriously needs a lot of improvement. In all the three games played, Oakland Raiders have scored a total of 48 points which makes their average only 16 points per game. Josh Jacobs as a rookie running back is doing an excellent job but their wide receiver Tyrell Williams is still without a touchdown.

Antonio Brown would have easily made around 4 to 5 TDs if he played three games for the Raiders. The Colts have an excellent quarterback in the form of Jacoby Brissett who have 95-plus quarterback rating. Colts vs Raiders would most likely go as another one-sided game with Indianapolis easily adding another victory to their points table.
Betting Odds: Colts(-6.5) vs Raiders, Pick: Colts 28, Raiders 21
