Why Bet On Jacksonville’s NFL Odds?

The Jacksonville Jaguars have one of the best pass defenses in the NFL and a stellar rookie in running back Leonard Fournette. In last week’s loss to the Rams, Fournette rushed for 130 yards and one touchdown. Fournette, who has scored a touchdown in each of his first six games this season, is the second rookie in NFL history to score at least one touchdown in each of his team’s first six games of a season, joining New England’s Robert Edwards (1998).Fournette, who had a 90-yard touchdown run in Week 5, rushed for a 75-yard touchdown on the Jaguars’ opening play from scrimmage last week. He is the first rookie in NFL history with touchdown runs of at least 75 yards in consecutive games.Here’s the thing, though: Fournette sprained his ankle vs. the Rams. Fournette was injured when he was tackled by cornerback Trumaine Johnson on a first-down run with 9:58 to play. He was cleared to re-enter the game but instead stayed on the sideline for the Jaguars’ final two-minute drill. Fournette says he’s playing.The Jags have a new kicker this week after cutting Jason Myers. Though Myers made 11 of his 15 field goal attempts this season, he was 0-for-3 on attempts longer than 50 yards and missed two PATs. He missed two 54-yard field goal attempts vs. the Rams. New Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo made 81.3 percent of his field-goal attempts, including going 4-for-8 from 50 and longer, with San Diego in 2015 and 2016.

Why Bet On Indianapolis’s NFL Odds?

The Colts will again be without injured quarterback Andrew Luck and they are on a short week. On Monday, the Colts lost at Tennessee 36-22.The teams traded field goals in the first quarter before tight end Jack Doyle caught an eight-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Jacoby Brissett to give the Colts a 10-6 lead. Both teams then converted field goals and Indianapolis held a 13-9 advantage at halftime. On the Titans’ first offensive play of the second half, outside linebacker John Simon intercepted Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota and returned the ball 26 yards for a touchdown.The Titans would record 13 unanswered points to take their first lead of the game with 10:01 left in the fourth quarter. Indianapolis tied the game up at 22-22 after kicker Adam Vinatieri made a 52-yard field goal. The Titans then added two TDs to put the game out of reach.Are the Colts a safe bet in the NFL odds for Week 8?Brissett completed 21-of-37 passes for 212 yards and one touchdown. He added 15 yards on five rushes. After the half, Brissett was dreadful, going 9-of-18 for 93 yards. The Colts have been outscored 88-25 in the fourth quarter and overtime this season.The Colts have lost backup RB Robert Turbin (arm) will miss the remainder of the season as his left arm got bent in sickening fashion against the Titans on Monday. He had handled a season-high seven touches before going down. Turbin was struggling behind Frank Gore, averaging 2.30 yards on his 23 carries. His loss creates more opportunities for promising rookie Marlon Mack.
