Luck out, Jags-Colts spread drops
The point spread for the Colts-Jaguars game has dropped following an ESPN report that stated quarterback Andrew Luck will not play.
ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported early Sunday morning that Luck (shoulder) is out for today's 1:00PM ET kickoff in Indianapolis. Luck barely practiced this week and must not have shown the coaching staff enough in a private workout on Saturday to show them he's healthy enough to play.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Colts opened as 8.5-point favorites but after the spread climbed to as high as 9.5, Indianapolis dropped all the way down to -3.5 following the Luck report. The total has also dropped, going from 47 down to 44.5.
The favorite is a perfect 5-0 against the spread in the last five meetings between these two teams but the road team is 11-5 ATS in the last 16 meetings. The under is also 7-1 in the last eight meetings between these two teams overall and 4-0 in the last four meetings in Indy.
Matt Hasselbeck will start in place of Luck.
