Season Record

Jaguars: 2-6, AFC South
Colts: 4-5, AFC South

Wow!  Last weekend Trevor Lawrence and his Jacksonville Jaguars beat Josh Allen and his Buffalo Bills!!  Why?  Because the whole NFL went crazy last weekend.  The underdog was king and not just against the point spread.  The underdog and teams that should have been the underdog whooped up on the favorites and some won their games straight up.  The Ravens got beat.  The Rams got beat. The Bears came close.  The Cardinals won without their two best offensive players!  Any Given Sunday is real people!  You have to watch the bankroll is protected by making solid picks and sometimes taking these lumps…. For instance the Jaguars are unbeaten ATS when they are a 10 point underdog or greater.  

AFC South Opponents like the Jaguars and the Colts are not destined for the playoffs and certainly not the Super Bowl.  They are, however, a good chance to build your bankroll in Nov.  An Indianapolis matchup starts with whether you think Carson Wentz can turn around this losing record or if Trevor and Urban Meyer have finally found a groove where they can get the best out of each other.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs Indianapolis Colts Preview and Analysis


Recent Form

The Jaguars are 3-5 ATS.  They have logged 2 Overs and 6 Unders. They are 0-3 on the road ATS, but they haven’t faced a spread this large against a team this average.

The Colts are 6-3 ATS.  They have logged 6 Overs and 3 Unders.  They are 2-3 ATS at home, this is the largest home spread of the year so far.

Offensive Analysis

On offense the Jacksonville Jaguars are averaging 332.9 ypg for 23rd in the NFL.  They score 16.5 points per game, 2nd worst in the NFL (only above the Houston Texans).. Though the win over the Bills has some people thinking the Jags have turned a corner.

The Colts on offense are averaging 371 yards per game.  They score 27.2 points per game.  There is a 10 ½ point difference in these two teams averages… that is where this spread has come from.  The problem with that is the Colts are only 4-5 on the season and have a tendency to play up or down to where their competition is.

Defensive Analysis

On defense the Jags give up 375.4 yards per game and allow 26.1 points per game.

The Colts defense gives up 367.2 yards per game and allow 23.7 points per game.  That isn’t the defensive footprint needed to cover a 10 ½ point spread.


Jacksonville Jaguars vs Indianapolis Colts Prediction

Our NFL Prediction for Sunday, November 14th is ...  Colts 24 - Jaguars 21
Jaguars ATS.  Ignore the O/U in this game, it is a trap.  The trap comes in that both of these QBs have up and down games … the scoring could be flush or dry.

Players to Watch

Jags:  Trevor Lawrence.  There is no other reason to watch the Jags.  Will this guy keep growing and become the next big thing.

Colts:  Carson Wentz.  He was the last big thing.  He is averaging 244.2 passing yards with a quarterback rating of 100.1.  Will he keep it up and keep not throwing those game killing interceptions?
