Tips For Betting On Colts Jaguars – Colts Have A Moment Of Opportunity This Week

Posted by Tony Bryant on 11/5/2012 5:32:55 PM

The Indianapolis Colts, halfway through their season, are 5-3, far better than any pundit expected from them at the start of the season. A big game awaits for this club on Thursday night.

Indianapolis Colts @ Jacksonville Jaguars – Thursday, November 8    
Betting line: Indianapolis -3

Why Indianapolis Will Win

The online sports betting legal community has to respect the work that the Colts have done under trying circumstances this season. Indianapolis gutted much of its roster and was felt by many observers to be a team in the midst of a rebuilding process. Most pundits expected the Colts to win something in the area of five or six games this season. Moreover, this team – so young and untested at so many positions – then had to deal with the fact that its first-year head coach, Chuck Pagano, came down with a case of leukemia that forced him to go to the hospital for extended medical care and observation. Offensive coordinator Bruce Arians had to take over the team. If a more established head coach had fallen ill, one could readily have imagined that the Colts would be able to proceed in a business-as-usual manner, but with a first-year head coach being sidelined, it was quite reasonable to think that Indianapolis was going to struggle.

Yet, the Colts haven't missed a beat. If anything, they've gotten better as the season has progressed. The Colts are not blowing out opponents, but they're winning stacks of close games. They won in overtime at Tennessee and then broke a fourth-quarter tie to stop the Miami Dolphins this past Sunday. The Colts are proving that they are a mentally resilient team, far tougher than any football experts had a right to expect in early September. Jacksonville is one of the three worst teams in the league, alongside the Cleveland Browns and the Kansas City Chiefs. The Colts, for all of their frailties and incomplete parts, should be able to go on the road and take care of business despite the really quick turnaround from Sunday's win over Miami.

Why Jacksonville Will Win

When football betting pundits assess this game, they're going to realize that Indianapolis played a very important game against Miami on Sunday. The Colts knew just how meaningful that moment was, and they poured out their emotions in the process. Now, this young Colts ballclub – one that has a few veteran players, but which is mainly comprised of players unused to the playoff push of November – must quickly turn around and, after only three days' rest plus a cross-regional plane flight, play an important divisional game against a team it is expected to beat. A lot of pressure is going to fall on Indianapolis' shoulders in this game. The youthful Colts might not be able to handle the moment or the travel grind. Moreover, Jacksonville played at home against Detroit this past Sunday. The Jaguars don't have to travel and will be more rested for this game than Indianapolis will.

Who Will Win

It’s possible that Jacksonville will take advantage of home field and capitalize against a possibly wobbly Indianapolis squad, but the Jaguars have not earned a bettor's trust this year. Indianapolis has improved this season, and it lost to Jacksonville at home in September. The Colts will want – and get – revenge.
