Jacksonville has won six of the last ten and two of the last three matchups while going 8-2 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. Indianapolis is 3-2 ATS overall, 2-0 ATS on the road, 3-2 ATS as an underdog, and 2-1 ATS in division games this season while the Jacksonville Jaguars are 3-2 ATS overall, 0-2 ATS at home, 2-1 ATS as a favorite, and 1-1 ATS in division games on the year.

Jacksonville will be back in the United States following two games in London and will be facing a team they have fared well against the Indianapolis Colts winning six of the last ten and two of the last three games while also being the better team at covering the spread going 8-2 ATS in the last ten and 2-1 ATS in the last three games. The winner of this game will take sole possession of 1st place in the AFC South and I look for the team that was the favorite to win the division before the season to take control on Sunday which is why I am taking the Jacksonville Jaguars -4 at home against the Indianapolis Colts.
