The Jacksonville Jaguars need a win after splitting their last eight games. The Jacksonville Jaguars have split their last four road games. Gardner Minshew is completing 61.2 percent of his passes for 2,285 yards, 13 touchdowns and four interceptions. Minshew has two touchdown passes in five of his first nine games. DJ Chark and Chris Conley have combined for 1,153 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Dede Westbrook has 32 receptions. The Jacksonville Jaguars ground game is averaging 129.6 yards per contest, and Leonard Fournette leads the way with 831 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Jacksonville is allowing 21 points and 350 yards per game. Myles Jack leads the Jacksonville Jaguars with 50 tackles, Josh Allen has seven sacks and Tre Henderson has two interceptions.
The Indianapolis Colts also need a win after splitting their last six games. The Indianapolis Colts have split their last four home games. Jacoby Brissett is completing 64.8 percent of his passes for 1,649 yards, 14 touchdowns and three interceptions. Brissett has two or more touchdown passes in five of his eight games this season. T.Y. Hilton and Zach Pascal have combined for 707 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Eric Ebron has 23 receptions. The Indianapolis Colts ground game is averaging 127.4 yards per contest, and Marlon Mack leads the way with 753 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Indianapolis is allowing 21.4 points and 327.6 yards per game. Darius Leonard leads the Indianapolis Colts with 60 tackles, Justin Houston has seven sacks and Malik Hooker has one interception.
The Jaguars are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games following a bye week, 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 games on fieldturf and 0-3-2 ATS in their last 5 games in November. The Colts are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 vs. AFC South, 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 games in November and 0-6-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record. The Jaguars are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings in Indianapolis and 7-0-1 ATS in their last 8 meetings. The under is 13-5 in Colts last 18 vs. AFC South. The under is 4-0 in Jaguars last 4 vs. AFC South.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are 3-3 ATS in their last six games as a road underdog. The Indianapolis Colts are 3-5 ATS in their last eight games as a home favorite. The Jacksonville Jaguars have had an extra week to prepare for this game and will get their original starting quarterback on the field in Nick Foles, which should help the offense. The Indianapolis Colts haven't looked good in their last two games, which includes losing last week to the Dolphins as double-digit favorites, and Jacoby Brissett is still questionable with a knee injury. Given the injury news for the Colts, I'm not sure how you turn down the free field goal with the rested Jags.
