NFL Football Betting Preview: Jacksonville Jaguars vs Indianapolis Colts
This Sunday the Indianapolis Colts (0-9) host the traveling Jacksonville Jaguars (2-7) at their home Lucas Oil Stadium. BetDSI Sportsbook current Live Lines have the Jaguars a -170 giving up 3 points to the Colts.
The Jacksonville Jaguars rookie QB Blaine Gabbert has been clearly struggling this year, it certainly does not help he is lacking a clear receiving threat. Last week against the Texans Gabbert threw only 10 completions on 30 attempts for a measly 97 yards, a touchdown and 2 interceptions and fumbling the rock once. RB Maurice Jones-Drew ran the ball 18 times for 63 yards and a TD.
Not much good can be said about the Jaguars defense, last week they alllowed 358 total yards, 358 passing, and 156 rushing. FS Dawan Landry had the best day for Jacksonville’s defense having 11 tackles and a forced fumble. DT C.J. Mosley had 3 tackles and a sack, while OLB Clint Sessions had 5 tackles and a sack.
The Indianapolis Colts offense has been horrible this year only putting up 20+ points twice this season. Last week they they managed to put up 7 big ones in a 31-7 blow-out loss to the Falcons. Rookie QB Curtis Painter threw 13 completions on 27 attempts for 98 yards 1 TD and 2 INT’s. RB Donald Brown led the team in rushing with 16 carries for 70 yards in the injured RB Joseph Addai’s absence.
The Colts defense was absolutely shredded last week for 432 yards, 269 passing, and 163 rushing. They allowed 4 touchdowns, 3 of which were passing, and another on the ground. CB Jerraud Powers had an interception on QB Matt Ryan for the only play the Indianapolis Colts defense made all day.
My Betting Prediction: If the Indianapolis Colts are going to get a win this year, this game against the Jacksonville Jaguars maybe the one. I like the Colts at +150 and Under 37 1/2 points. With two rookie QB’s on mediocre teams playing, alot of balls will be hitting the grass making a tough game to sit through. Points will probably be hard earned, and I don’t see the score high at all in this contest.
