If you want to win money on the NFL, you need to prepare. We have one final slate of games to make this happen. Let’s go to work and finish the regular season on a high note.
Here is your week 18 outlook. We will look at Indianapolis Colts vs Jacksonville Jaguars.
Indianapolis Colts Travel to Jacksonville to Face the Jaguars
The Jacksonville Jaguars are not only the league’s worst team, but they’re also the most likely to get a top pick in this year’s draft. However, because of their 2-14 record, this game has significant postseason implications: if the Colts win, they’ll secure a postseason spot without having to rely on several other unlikely occurrences.
The Colts have not clinched a playoff berth. However, if they win on Sunday, they will be in the playoffs with a. 10-7 record. Indianapolis should dominate Jacksonville on Sunday behind Jonathan Taylor running the football.
Indianapolis lost to the Raiders last week because Las Vegas neutralized the run game. I like the Colts to win and cover in a statement win. The Jaguars were beaten by 40 points on Sunday in New England.
Colts vs Jacksonville Betting
The Colts biggest advantage this weekend is Taylor, which Reich knows he can rely on Taylor. Reich needs to provide Wentz with enough opportunities to work out the kinks after the quarterback appeared scrambled at times against Las Vegas following a practice week in which he only attended virtually due to COVID-19 protocols.
Indianapolis is -15.5, which is a huge spread to cover. However, it’s hard not to take this side of the line after seeing how the Patriots beat up the Jaguars last week. 67% of bettors like the over of 44 points.
On Sunday, all the Colts fans will be on the edge of there seats to see if they can clench their spot into the postseason.
