The Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars face off on Sunday in a Week 6  NFL showdown at TIAA Bank Field.

How Can the Colts Do with Gardner Minshew?

Anthony Richardson has been placed on the IR and now Gardner Minshew is charged with leading the team. The Colts come into this game with a 3-2 record overall and Minshew led them to a victory in the last game. The Colts scored 23 points against the Tennessee Titans and they ended up winning by seven points. Gardner Minshew completed 11 of his 14 passes for 155 yards. Zack Moss rushed 23 times for 165  yards and two touchdowns. Moss should still play a big role but Jonathan Taylor is also expected to get more carries here. The Colts are averaging 24 points while their defense is giving up 23 points per game. Mo-Alie Cox is dealing with a concussion and it’s unclear if he’s going to be able to go in this game. 

Colts Betting Trends

  • The Colts have lost each of their last seven games at EverBank Stadium.
  • The Colts have failed to cover the spread in each of their last seven Sunday games at EverBank Stadium.

Jaguars Look for Third Straight Win

All the Jaguars needed was a trip overseas to turn their season around and they sit with a 3-2  record. Last Sunday, the Jaguars faced off against the Buffalo Bills and 14 points in the 4th quarter was enough for them to secure the 25-20 victory. Trevor Lawrence completed 25 of his 37 passes for 315 yards and a touchdown. Travis Etienne Jr also rushed 266 times for 136 yards and two touchdowns. The Jaguars are averaging 21 points while their defense is giving up 20.4 points per game.

  • The Jaguars have scored the first touchdown in four of their last five Sunday games as favorites.

Shane’s Free Pick

The Colts are going to keep this game close. Losing Richardson sucks for the Colts, but Minshew is a great backup and I am still not sold on the Jaguars defense. Even if the Jaguars offense finds a lot of success in this game, the Colts offense is going to have no issue running up the score and that is going to be the difference as Indianapolis gets the job done. Back the Colts against the spread.
