Jaguars Visit Indianapolis in Search of Rare Back-to-Back Wins

The Jacksonville Jaguars aim to post consecutive straight-up wins for just the second time since November 2015 when they wrap up their 2016 NFL season with a Week 17 clash against the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium. The 7-8 Colts are coming off a 33-25 loss in Oakland as 3.5-point underdogs, and are winless in three of their past four home dates.

Shark Bites
  • The Colts are 5-1 ATS in their last six games at home after failing to cover in their most recent home game.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 13 of the Colts' last 18 games as favorite.
  • The Jaguars are 2-22 SU in their last 24 games on the road.

The 3-12 Jaguars halted a nine-game straight-up losing streak with last weekend's 38-17 win over the Tennessee Titans as 4.5-point home underdogs. Jacksonville has enjoyed some recent success at the sportsbooks, posting against the spread wins in three of its past five, and is 4-2 ATS over its past six road contests.

The Colts have been a model of inconsistency this season, recording consecutive wins just once. Indianapolis has also lost three of its past four on home turf, including a 22-17 loss to Houston as 6.5-point home chalk three weeks ago, and has failed to cover in three straight at home when favored by six or more points.

Jacksonville has posted big wins in two straight against the Colts, and covered in three straight meetings. But Indianapolis has dominated in home matchups with the Jaguars, winning three straight, all as home chalk, while holding Jacksonville to a meagre 8.6 points per game.
