Colts vs. Jaguars Prediction

NFL Week 4 Predictions Indianapolis Colts vs. Jacksonville Jaguars 10/2/16

NFL action gets underway early on Sunday when the Jacksonville Jaguars host the Indianapolis Colts at 9:30AM ET from London. Which team has the edge?

According to the oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Colts are favored in this game, as they are getting odds of -2.5 points against the Jaguars. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 48.5 points. The Colts have won six of the last seven meetings with the Jags but Jacksonville has covered the spread in the last two meetings.

Bet on Jaguars vs. Colts

The Colts got their first win of the season last weekend, by beating the Chargers 26-22 at home. Indy is now 1-2 on the season while going 1-2 against the spread. The Colts have been favored in two of their three games. The Indianapolis offense is moving along under the return of Andrew Luck. As a unit, the offense is averaging 27 points and 390.3 yards per game. Luck has thrown for 913 yards and six touchdowns this season while the run game has produced just 258 yards in three games. The concern for Indy is on defense, where they are giving up 407.7 yards and 31.7 points per game. The Colts are really struggling against the pass, allowing 312 yards per game through the air.

The Jaguars are coming off a 19-17 loss at home to the Ravens to fall to 0-3 on the season, but Jacksonville did pick up its first cover of the season in the loss. Despite giving up 28 points per game, the Jags are allowing just 320.7 yards per contest. Reason for that is turnovers. Blake Bortles has thrown six interceptions this season to just five interceptions. The run game has really struggled as well, putting up only 165 yards in three games.

Gus Bradley could be fighting for his job on Sunday, but that could be a losing battle. While the Colts have injuries on defense, I still trust them to make some plays against the Jaguars, who can’t run and make Bortles force too many tough passes. Luck shouldn’t have too much difficulty moving the ball on this Jacksonville defense. Look for the Colts to pick up a comfortable division win.
