Why Bet The Jacksonville Jaguars To Beat The Colts
The Jaguars have found the missing piece in their quest to make the playoffs. Rookie rusher Leonard Fournette is the center piece of this offense taking the ball out of failed franchise QB Blake Bortles. Fournette had 130 yards and one touchdown against the Rams before suffering a scarey ankle injury.
While the injury was labeled “nothing serious,” even a minor injury to the rookie first-round pick could be devastating to the Jaguars’ chances of keeping pace in the AFC South — and their chances of winning the division would be drastically smaller without him.
Fournette leads the NFL in carries (46) and yards (270) against eight or more defenders in the box. The closest running back is Carolina’s Jonathan Stewart, who has 29 carries (for only 43 yards). The Jaguars have a league-high 66 carries for a league-high 366 yards against eight or more defenders in the box. Buffalo and Carolina have the second-most carries (37).
Why Bet The Indianapolis Colts To Beat The Jaguars
Will this be the game that the Colts can close out? Last week, Indianapolis saw the Titans scored 27 of their 36 points in the second half after leading 19-9 early in the 3rd.
“We’ve got to play 60 minutes,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “It’s a recurring thing, I know that. We’ve got to figure out, obviously, a way to finish games. Our margin for error is minute and we just continue to kill ourselves.”
Indianapolis has led or been tied at halftime in their past five games only to be outscored 82-35 in the second half of those games.
