Some sports betting matchups just stand out in the NFL, and Week Four’s clash between Indianapolis and Jacksonville is one of them. On the surface, it’s a divisional rivalry. Look deeper, and you’ll see two teams going in the opposite direction. That doesn’t bode well for the home team as the Colts’ offense will light them up.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Sunday, October 3rd, 4:05 PM ET
  • Where: EverBank Field, Jacksonville, FL
  • Pick: Indianapolis Colts -8

What’s On The Line

The Indianapolis Colts (2-1) got another efficiently brilliant performance from Peyton Manning in a 27-13 win in Denver, and it also appears as though the defense has gotten their act together after a tough Week 1. The Jaguars (1-2) were whipped all over the field in a 28-3 loss at home to the Philadelphia Eagles, and they’ll probably be seeing Michael Vick in their nightmares. The Jaguars need a win to keep up in the AFC North, but they’ve been dominated by the Colts in recent years.

Offensive Matchups: Colts Jaguars Betting

Manning leads the league in passer rating, and he’s thrown three touchdowns with no picks in each of the first three games of the season. Indianapolis keeps trying to establish a running game, and they have been for the last few years, but it’s pretty much irrelevant with Manning at the helm. The control he has over this offense is sick, and when you take away Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark, who combined for nine catches, he finds Austin Collie for 12 receptions, 171 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and little-used Blair White in the end zone.

The Jacksonville Jaguars managed 184 yards of offense against the Eagles, and David Garrard had one of the worst days in recent memory by any pivot: 13-of 30 for 105 yards, a pick and he was sacked six times. The problem is, the Jaguars don’t have a backup to replace Garrard, so he’ll keep getting chances. Teams are ganging up on Maurice Jones-Drew, their only offensive option, so something needs to happen to open up the offense.

Defensive Matchups: Colts Jaguars Betting

In the first game of the season, the Colts gave up 257 yards, including 231 yards to Houston’s Arian Foster. In Week 2, they held the New York Giants to 120 yards on the ground and in Week 3, 47 yards against the Denver Broncos. Whatever happened after that first week, they need to do it every week because the Indianapolis defense looks incredibly focused now. With Garrard struggling, look for them to aim to contain Jones-Drew.

Jacksonville will face a different type of pivot with Manning, a pocket passer, but they made Vick look like Joe Montana as he tossed for 291 yards and three touchdowns, then he ran for 30 more yards and a score. The Jaguars looked completely unprepared for the problems Vick posed, and some of that has to go on the coaches. It’s not looking good for coach Jack Del Rio, who has been leading the Jaguars since 2003, and it may be time for a change.

Notable Injuries: Colts Jaguars Betting

Tackle Charlie Johnson (foot), receiver Pierre Garcon (hamstring) and safety Brandon King (hamstring) all missed last week’s game and will be watched this week. Linebacker Kavell Conner (foot) left the Denver game in the first quarter, while the Colts will hope Clint Sessions (hamstring) can go after missing the last two games.

The Jaguars look to have all hands on deck, and they’ll need everyone.

Outlook and Pick: Colts Jaguars Betting

The Colts are an 8-point NFL betting favorite on the road, and they’ve won four of their last five trips to Jacksonville, going 3-2 ATS as well. The Jaguars look awful, and they’re going up against Manning, who has a 99.4 rating in 17 games against them with 34 touchdowns and 12 picks. Not to mention, all of the trouble that Jacksonville is having in the secondary? It’ll be a good day if they keep Manning under 400 yards. The Colts will win in an online betting romp.

Stan’s Pick: Indianapolis Colts
