The Colts will try to bounce back and win at home against the Jags, who are coming off a bye week. What does Vegas say about this?
Jacksonville always seems to play Indianapolis hard. No matter how bad they have been in relation to the Colts, they always play them tough. Sometimes they even win the game with inferior talent. This season though, the talent level is fairly even between these two teams.
Vegas certainly thinks that’s the case. The Colts right now are 3 point favorites, and that’s most likely because the Colts are at home. Even though they are at home, they are coming off the worst loss they have had in a few seasons, falling to the Dolphins at home.
The Jags get Nick Foles back for this game, but he could be a little rusty. That also could be why the Colts are favored. Jacoby Brissett coming back also plays into that. But the Colts are 2-4 in their last six games against the spread, so keep that in mind.
As far as the over/under is concerned, the line is 43.5. That seems like a fairly high number for these two offenses, especially recently. The Colts just scored 12 against Miami and the Jags scored 3 in a loss against the Texans. Neither offense is firing on all cylinders.
No matter which way you decide to bet, this game should be a close one. The Colts have yet to play any game that hasn’t been a one score game. It should be a nail biter through and through, so be wary of that in your betting choices.
