The Colts are currently 4-0 both SU and ATS in their last four meetings that they had with the Jaguars, their divisional rivals. As they are leaving a very bad loss to the Patriots at home, the Colts, who are 6-4, are set to take on an opponent that could serve them very well on Sunday for them to bounce back when they take on the Jaguars at home, who are 1-9, and total betting services believe that they’re in for a show.
The betting line opened with the Colts being the favorites by 14 points, and 50.5 was the total.
Jacksonville were struggling mightily with Blake Bortles, a rookie trying to work his way around the QB position with the big boys of football. But the team had a week off to work with, after they suffered a loss of 31-17 to the Cowboys in London two weeks back, so maybe those practices were properly taken advantage of.
Just before their game against Dallas, the Jaguars were able to hold their own against the Bengals, as they ended up pushing the spread as the dogs with 10 points. Prior to that taking place, Jacksonville were able to outgain and outrush the Dolphins, but two defensive TD’s were given up in a loss of 27-13. And before this meeting took place, they took out the Browns, and before that one, they covered but ended up losing to the Titans. Finally, the Jaguars are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games in the division on the road.
Indianapolis just suffered a 42-20 loss at home to the Patriots, but early in the game’s fourth quarter they were only trailing by a single score before letting the Patriots end the meeting with a couple of TD’s. Indianapolis were recently able to win five games in a row, both SU and ATS, before they ended up losing to the Steelers a few weeks back.
Right now, the Jaguars are a great team for the Colts to face, considering the fact that Indianapolis were recently the ones to dominate the game against Jacksonville. The Colts are leading the NFL in their total offense, and with 31 points per game they have a ranking of third place when it comes to scoring. Indianapolis are finally 6-0 ATS in the last six meetings that they played at home in the division.
In the series, Indianapolis were able to win their last four meetings by a 25 points-per-game average, and they should be the ones to be able to bounce back. All in all, total betting services believe that the Colts should have no problems beating Indianapolis.
