Stingy Jaguars Look to Rebound in AFC South Matchup with Indianapolis

The Jacksonville Jaguars hope to bounce back from their first SU loss in five games as they host the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday at EverBank Field. The Jaguars fell to 7-4 with last week’s 27-24 loss in Arizona as 6-point chalk, while the struggling Colts are coming off their second straight defeat, a 20-16 loss to Tennessee as 3-point home underdogs.

Shark Bites
  • The Colts are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games against the Jaguars.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Colts’ last 13 games against the Jaguars.
  • The Jaguars are 14-4-1 ATS in their last 19 games in Week 13.

The Jaguars turned in their worst offensive performance of the season in last week’s loss in the desert, amassing just 219 total yards while giving up multiple first-half scores for the first time in five games. Jacksonville continues to lead the NFL with just 15.3 points per game allowed this season, but has struggled historically in December, surrendering 24 ppg during a 1-5 SU and 2-4 ATS run.

The Colts continued their offensive struggles in last week’s loss to the Titans, and have scored just 15.8 ppg during a 1-5 SU run. Despite the power outage, Indianapolis has covered in four of five outings, but has been blown out in its past two while pegged as underdogs of 9 or more points, and is 1-5 ATS in its past six overall against AFC South opponents.

Jacksonville has dominated the Colts in recent meetings, going 3-1 SU in their past four and covering in five straight. That run includes a lopsided 27-0 win in Indianapolis as 3-point chalk in Week 7, and a pair of wins on home turf in which they averaged 40.5 ppg.
