The Indianapolis Colts will be playing their third road game in five weeks against the Jacksonville Jaguars, who are coming off an embarrassing home loss and went off as a three-point underdog on national television.
Not much can be said about the value of nationally-televised underdogs that hasn't already been said. The SpreadSHREDDER has got quite fat and happy off teams expected to lose in their own backyard in front of a sizeable viewing audience.
The Indianapolis Colts are beginning to become media darlings as they prepare to make a surprising playoff run on the strength of rookie Andrew Luck, who continues to be universally lauded by NFL pundits.
The Colts have done the majority of their damage at home, where they have already played five games, and will now return to the road—where they are 1-2—on a short week.
Against what should be a more intense Jaguars team in a hostile environment, expect this young Colts team to slip up on the road against a divisional foe yet again.
Prediction: Jacksonville 24-21 Indianapolis
