Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts opened as 8-point home favorites for their game against Washington on Sunday afternoon, but with Robert Griffin III getting benched in favor of Colt McCoy that line has been on the move over the past few days.
Heading into the weekend the Colts had improved to 10.5-point home favorites against Washington as they try to expand their lead in the AFC South standings and build on their marks of 7-4 SU and 8-3 ATS on the season. Washington is riding a three-game losing streak and has fallen to 3-8 SU and 4-7 ATS heading into Week 13.

Elsewhere, the Buffalo Bills apparently impressed the betting public with their dominant win over the New York Jets last Monday night at Ford Field, because they’ve improved to 3-point home favorites this week against the Cleveland Browns – with that game having opened as a pick’em. Buffalo is clinging to AFC Wild Card hopes at 6-5 SU and 5-6 ATS, while Cleveland is 7-4 SU and 6-4-1 ATS this season.
The Browns are in a four-way battle for top spot in the AFC North, and two of their division rivals have seen their odds improve this week – Baltimore has gone from -4.5 to -7 at home against San Diego, and Pittsburgh has gone from -3 to -5 at home against New Orleans. Cincinnati has slipped from -4 to -3.5 on the road against Tampa Bay.
And in the marquee games for Sunday the Green Bay Packers have fallen from 4-point home favorites to 3-point home favorites against the New England Patriots, while the Kansas City Chiefs are now in a pick’em situation with the Denver Broncos after Peyton Manning and company opened as a 1.5-point road favorite earlier in the week.
