The Jacksonville Jaguars are winless headed into Week 3, and according to the experts they'll stay that way. A survey of picks from around the web is nearly unanimous for the Indianapolis Colts.

Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts look for their second victory of the year as they host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 3, while the Jaguars are still struggling to get their first. The experts have weighed in with their picks, and it seems that Indianapolis is the clear favorite.

The pundits at ESPN.com are nearly unanimous, with only Ron Jaworski picking the Jaguars. The AccuScore simulation also favors the Colts. Over at Yahoo! it's the same story, with Les Carpenter differing from his two colleagues and a survey of Yahoo users, all of whom picked Indianapolis. Of the three experts at Yahoo!, Carpenter has the worst record. At CBS Sports, it's Mike Freeman who takes the contrary pick, with seven other writers and a computer simulation all calling for Luck and the Colts to improve to 2-1.
