Jaguars Colts Betting Predictions– Colts And Jaguars Try To Gain Positioning In AFC South

Posted by Tony Bryant on 9/19/2012 6:43:25 PM

The Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts might wind up in last place in the AFC South this season, but with Tennessee struggling, the winner this weekend will be in second place.

Why Jacksonville Will Win    

The betting websites that follow the NFL with particular meticulousness are likely a bit surprised by the way in which the AFC South Division has taken shape through two weeks. The Tennessee Titans were seen in many betting outlets as a team that would finish in the upper half of the division, in second place behind the Houston Texans, unanimously seen as the favorite. The Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts were viewed as the teams who would fight for table scraps at the bottom of the division, but with Tennessee not just falling to 0-2, but looking absolutely terrible in the process of losing twice, there's a real opportunity for Jacksonville (and Indianapolis) in this contest. The winner will be in second place in the division after three weeks, offering cause for hope.

Jacksonville has a chance to win this game because as good as Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck might eventually become, he is a rookie who is learning how to play the position in the face of regular-season speed and regular-season adjustments made by NFL defenses. Luck had more success in the preseason than he's enjoyed this season. Indianapolis, in prior seasons under Peyton Manning, would have drilled the lowly Minnesota Vikings this past weekend. The fact that Indianapolis scraped out a narrow three-point win shows how far the Colts have to go. A strong defensive performance from the Jaguars can deliver them a victory even if their wobbly offense, which got smothered by the Houston Texans a week ago, does not ring up a big number of points.

Why Indianapolis Will Win

When playing online poker, you need to be savvy and confident. You need to comport yourself with a certain air of confidence, much as you have to do when playing poker in the flesh and staring across the table at other opponents. Poker is a game of chance, but it's also a game of attitude, and that piece of emotional background helps explain why the Colts have a very good chance against the Jaguars.

Neither one of these teams is going to achieve much this season, but the salient difference between the Colts and Jaguars is that the Colts have a burgeoning sense of optimism. With Andrew Luck at quarterback, they're optimistic about their long-term future and are moving in the right direction after their 2-14 season last year. The Jaguars had a horrible offseason and look like a franchise that's going to be stuck in mediocrity for quite some time. Indianapolis has more momentum and belief. Playing at home should enable the Colts to scratch out a close win.

Who Will Win

The Colts' locker room is a much better place to be than the Jaguars' locker room. Indianapolis owns a lot more confidence at this point in the season and, at home, deserves a field goal edge. It will win unless Jacksonville produces a special performance.
