Why Bet On Indianapolis?

Why should you bet on the Indianapolis Colts in this huge Week 13 AFC South showdown? There are a bunch of good reasons. First, Indianapolis has a ton of momentum coming into this contest riding the wave of an impressive five-game winning streak that includes their hard-fought 27-24 win over Miami last weekend. Another great reason to back Indy is that the Colts have the far more explosive offense in this matchup as they rank a stellar fourth in points per game (29.5 ppg) compared to Jacksonville’s far more modest 17.9 points per contest (28th). Last but not least, Indianapolis beat Jacksonville 29-26 in Week 10 which means if they did it once, they can do it again.

Why Bet On Jacksonville?

Are the Jaguars a safe bet for NFL Week 13?Why should you bet on Jacksonville in this Week 13 showdown? There are several great reasons despite the fact that the Jaguars have dropped seven straight games coming into this contest. First, Jacksonville still has an elite defense that ranks eighth in points allowed (22.1 ppg). Another good reason is that Jacksonville is playing at home in this contest, where they’ve recorded two of their paltry three wins this season. If you need another good reason, then you should know that Jacksonville knows the division rival Colts quite well and last but not least, they’re playing at home.

Expert Analysis and Prediction

While there would appear to be no really good reason to back Jacksonville in this contest, even at home, that’s exactly what I’m going to urge you to do. Again, Jacksonville is completely and utterly desperate and really, they’re probably a lot better than we’ve seen out of them this season. While the favorite in this series has gone 11-4-1 ATS in the last 16 meetings, Indianapolis is 0-6 ATS in the last six meetings. I feel an inexplicable upset in the making.
