Week 8 NFL action is underway, but FanDuel Sportsbook has already released NFL odds and lines for Week 9, giving us an early preview of the upcoming slate.

Week 9 includes an AFC matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and New England Patriots.

Colts vs Patriots Odds & Lines Week 9

All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
Moneyline: IND: (+198) | NE: (-240)
Spread: IND: +5.5 (-110) | NE: -5.5 (-110)
Total: N/A — Over: (N/A) | Under: (N/A)

The Colts go on the road as solid underdogs against the Patriots in Week 9. New England is an early -240 moneyline favorite and favored by 5.5 points on the spread.

Colts vs Patriots Prediction Week 9

Early NFL predictions and picks are from ESPN's Football Power Index (FPI).
Colts: 22.6% to win
Patriots: 77.2% to win

Oddsmakers are giving New England the edge in this contest. ESPN's FPI also favors the Patriots, but I find myself leaning the other way. While both of these teams have question marks at the QB position, one has a clear upper hand at RB. Jonathan Taylor is capable of torching a New England defense that ranks outside the top 25 teams in rush defense DVOA rating. Take Colts +5.5 (-110).
