Jaguars can get back in form against Colts

Best handicap bet
Jacksonville -9 v Indianapolis
The Jaguars thumped the Colts 27-0 on the road in their Week Seven meeting and a similar story could unfold in the return match in Florida.

The Colts have not been hammered again in their four outings since, suffering narrow losses to Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Tennessee and conjuring up a win over Houston, while the Jaguars made it four wins in a row by seeing off the Bengals, Chargers and Browns before last week’s disappointing defeat against Arizona.

That result should have shaken any complacency out of the Jaguars going into this AFC South game, as it saw them lose the lead in the division to the Titans.

The Colts look outmatched on both lines and they could be bullied by a Jaguars side who did not have star running back Leaord Fournette in the teams’ first meeting.

Punters who shy away from teams giving up more than a converted touchdown on the might be reassured by the fact that six of Jacksonville’s seven wins have been by margins of 12 points or more.

Jacksonville aren’t ideally suited to playing catch-up but when they get on top in a game they tend to stretch clear.

That was the case in their 44-7 victory over Baltimore at Wembley and their eye-catching 30-9 success in Pittsburgh.

Jacoby Brissett has made a decent job of filling in for injured Colts quarterback Andrew Luck but the rest of the roster is lacking in talent.

Best totals bet
Under 43 points in Houston at Tennessee
This week’s second AFC South clash, between Houston and Tennessee, is unlikely to be as explosive as the teams’ first meeting.

The Week Four game in Houston’s indoor stadium produced 71 points as rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson threw five touchdown passes in a 57-14 Texans success.

Things have slowed down for the Houston offensive since Watson’s season-ending injury, however, and they are averaging 17 points per game in Tom Savage’s four starts.

Tennessee’s Houston humbling has not been repeated but their offence has been far more stodgy than they would have hoped and they have not topped 24 points in their last five games. This looks like a game to take unders.

Week 13 Power Rankings

Best player bet
J Gordon over 46.5 receiving yards
Cleveland have had little reason to get excited while winning just one of their last 26 games but the return of wide receiver Josh Gordon is one.

Gordon led the league in yardage in 2013 but has not played since December 2014 due to a series of suspensions.

Browns head coach Hue Jackson has said Gordon, who has an exceptional combination of size and speed, will start straight away against the Chargers and he may need only a couple of catches to pass Paddy Power’s yardage line of 46.5.
