Week 10 NFL Colts vs Jaguars Online Handicapping
Andrew Luck leads the Indianapolis Colts against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday, November 8, 2012 from EverBank Field in Jacksonville, Florida. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 PM ET in front of a national audience. Indy is looking for a fourth straight win while the Jags are fighting for a win at home, where they are 0-4 this season. The Colts are too hot now to fall prey to the Jags, which is why we like Indy.
Indianapolis Colts: Looking for four in a row
Following an emotional win over the Miami Dolphins last week, the Colts are 5-3 all of a sudden and on a three-game winning streak. The only thing not in favor of the Colts on Thursday night is the fact that the Jaguars only win this season came against Indy back in September. Andrew Luck is playing inspired football right now, turning the Colts into a playoff contender in the absence of head coach Chuck Pagano.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Mired in five-game losing streak
Jacksonville has lost five in a row ever since they defeated the Colts on September 23 by a score of 22-17 on the road. The Jags do not even have a win at home this season and their fans are starting to look towards the 2013 season. Blaine Gabbert is at the head of the NFL’s worst offense, which is last in the league in total offense and in scoring. The Jags average just 14.6 points per game in 2012, which is last in the league.
As these two AFC South teams meet on Thursday night, both are going in completely opposite directions. Indy is two games from the top of the division while Jacksonville is in the cellar. The top online sportsbook of Bodog.ca has the Colts as -4 (-200) favorites to turn back the host Jaguars tonight, which makes us take the Colts with the spread in this AFC South contest in front of a national audience.
