The Indianapolis Colts host the Jacksonville Jaguars as three-point favorites on Sunday afternoon. This will mark the first time this season that the Colts have been favored. The line opened at one-and-a-half points but has since moved to either two-and-a-half or three points depending on the sportsbook. The total for the matchup opened at 42 and has either stayed put or moved up slightly to 42.5 points, again depending on the sportsbook.
The Colts come into this game 1-1 and the Jaguars 0-2, but both teams are 1-1 against the spread, with both covers coming against the Minnesota Vikings. The Jaguars lost to to the Vikings 26-23 in a Week 1 OT battle, but covered, and the Colts defeated the Vikings 23-20 in Week 2 as two-and-a-half-point-underdogs. The Jags lost their Week 2 game against the Texans, 27-7, failing to cover as six-and-a-half-point underdogs and only managing 52 passing yards.
The Jaguars covered the spread in both meetings between the AFC South rivals last season, but the Colts clearly did not have Andrew Luck behind center.
