Jaguars Colts Betting – Colts, Jaguars Clash With Division On The Line

When the Jacksonville Jaguars travel to Lucas Oil Stadium to take on the Indianapolis Colts this Sunday, it will be about much more than bragging rights. The Jaguars lead Indianapolis by one game in the AFC South, and can put a stranglehold on the division with a win this weekend. With the Baltimore Ravens and New York Jets in position to clinch the two wild card spots, winning the division may be the only way for these teams to get in to the postseason.

NFL Betting: Jacksonville Jaguars @ Indianapolis Colts

Online Sports Betting Odds: Indianapolis – 4.5

The Colts limp in to this game with just one win through their last four games, and are at risk of missing out on the postseason altogether. Indianapolis already had their streak of 12-win seasons snapped and can finish no better than 10-6. That could be enough for a division title.

Why To Bet On The Jaguars

Jacksonville has found its offensive rhythm the last few weeks, scoring at least 24 points in four of six contests while going 5-1. Their lone loss over that span was a late comeback effort by the New York Giants on the road, but if they can continue to move the ball the way they have, the Jaguars could be dangerous. Jacksonville’s rushing attack ranks second in the league with an average of 157.8 yards per game, and running back Maurice Jones-Drew is the biggest reason why. Jones-Drew has averaged 4.5 yards per carry with five touchdowns on the year, and will continue to open things up for quarterback David Garrard and the passing game. The Jaguars took the first football betting meeting between these teams 31-28.

Why To Bet On The Colts

Regardless of how they perform, Peyton Manning and the Colts can never be counted out. Despite a career-worst string of three games over which he threw 11 interceptions, Manning looked solid throwing for 319 yards and two touchdowns in last weekend’s win over the Tennessee Titans. Manning threw for 352 yards and two touchdowns when these teams met earlier in the year, but Indianapolis couldn’t find a way to stop Jones-Drew. The Colts should be more prepared to stop the run this time around, with the hometown fans providing the noise to disrupt the Jaguars’ offense.

How The Game Will Play Out

While the Colts have struggled this season, they are still far too talented not to make the postseason. Jacksonville has benefited from a soft schedule that was the result of finishing last in the division a year ago, and although they could very well still clinch the division, it won’t be this week on the road in Indianapolis. Look for the Colts to put up points in bunches and make a statement with a big win to even things up on top of the AFC South division.
