It’s been a rocky start to the season for the Indianapolis Colts, but they’ll be happy to see a team they’ve owned in recent years on Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Both sides enter the matchup with identical 1-2 SU records and the Colts will be seeking their first cover of the season. Indy edged Tennessee 35-33 in Week 3 but barely failed to cover the -3 spread in the process.
As rumors swirl regarding an alleged ongoing clash between Colts head coach Chuck Pagano and the team’s front office, the on-field product has left a lot to be desired for Colts fans and bettors alike.
Indy’s defense has been getting carved up like a Thanksgiving turkey, surrendering 26.7 points per game – the 23rd worst mark in the league. It hasn’t been much prettier on offense, as the club has the 25th worst offense in the NFL (18.7 points per game).
The Jags were severely outclassed in Week 3’s 51-17 dismantling by the New England Patriots. Including last season, Jacksonville is 0-5 SU in its last five road games.
The good news for the Colts is that they have a history of covering spreads against Jacksonville. Indianapolis is 5-0 ATS in its last five games against the Jaguars.
