TheSpread.com betting matchup advantage:

TheSpread.com betting matchup has the Colts as a 5-point favorite tonight, which wouldn’t be enough to cover the spread. We happen to agree and think that handing the home team 6 to 6.5 points is far too much – even if that home team is the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars. Indy has too many injuries to win by more than a couple points in this game. And we advise waiting for the public to drive up the point spread even more to get .5 to 1 point added on to the Jags’ tally. We predict the Colts over the Jaguars 27-23.
