Week 7 NFL odds: Browns vs. Colts

The Cleveland Browns (1-5) are slight underdogs for their Week 7 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts (2-3).

The Cleveland Browns finally got in the win column last week, but odds makers say you shouldn't count on them to start a winning streak when they take on the Indianapolis Colts in Week 7. Indianapolis is only listed as a 2.5-point favorite on Sunday even though they will host the Browns, so there aren't any strong indications that lean in either direction for this matchup.

According to Odds Shark, the Colts are actually 4-1 straight up and also against-the-spread in their last five games at home, and that solid record is punctuated by upset wins over the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers.

The over/under for the contest currently sits at 45 points, in part because Brandon Weeden and the Browns have posted an average of nearly 26 points-per-game over the last three weeks. Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck has already thrown for 1,488 yards and seven touchdowns through the team's first five games, so expect Luck and Reggie Wayne to test a Browns secondary has been banged up this season.
