Early point spread for Colts-Chiefs primetime clash suggests overreaction to loss to Raiders

By Joe Rodgers and Marcus DiNitto, BetIndiana News

The banged-up Colts came out flat in Week 4 against the Raiders, but based on early point spreads for Sunday night’s game in Kansas City, the betting market may have overreacted to the home loss.

In advanced betting lines posted a week ago in Las Vegas, oddsmakers listed the Colts as 8.5-point underdogs at Arrowhead Stadium. But as Sunday’s Week 4 action was wrapping up, Kansas City -10 was posted on betting boards, and the number had been bet up to -11 by Monday.

It’s not like the Chiefs were overly impressive in a comeback non-cover win over the Lions, so if the Colts get back a combination of WR T.Y. Hilton, LB Darius Leonard and DL Tyquan Lewis, you can bet professional bettors will be looking to take the points with the road underdogs.
