Against the Spread Pick
An AFC South battle between two teams that are just playing for pride at this point as the Jacksonville Jaguars host the Indianapolis Colts. Indianapolis was in prime position for a playoff spot for a while, then they completely collapsed a little over a month back. I was always high on this team's talent, but they were underachieving, until they finally broke out this past week. They put all of their problems behind them, and absolutely dominated the Panthers while stomping them 38-6. A lot of people thought the Jaguars might come out with a homerun effort after firing Tom Coughlin, but instead they got beat by multiple scores by the Falcons. Jacksonville has now lost six of their last seven games, and each of those losses have come by at least 12 points. The defense has seemed to have quit at times, and I don't think they're going to be too passionate about this finale. Indianapolis has a much stronger culture, and Frank Reich is going to have his guys prepared. The Colts win this one easily.
Over Under Pick
The under is just as good of a play here. Indianapolis had a lot of injuries to their defense earlier this season, which caused it to drop off. They are now pretty much healthy, and they bounced back in a big way this past week. They completely shut down Carolina, limiting them to only six points. Gardner Minshew has been struggling under center, and he only averaged 5.8 yards per attempt against Atlanta's shaky secondary while completing only 13 of 31 passes this past week. Jacksonville's strength is their pass-rush, and if their defensive front can get some pressure here then I don't think either team will have much success on offense.
