NFL football betting fans are beyond fed up with Jacksonville coach Jack Del Rio and quarterback David Garrard after 2 straight pro football betting defeats.
Jacksonville will host Indianapolis on Sunday with a telecast on CBS. Kickoff is at 4:05 PM Eastern and Sports-Gambling opened with Indianapolis as a 7.5 point road favorite and with an over under of 46.5.
The Colts have a NFL sports betting record of 2-1 both straight up and against the spread and have looked much better after a 34-24 loss at Houston on opening day. The defense has been bad and ranks 24th overall and the rushing attack remains the weakness of the team ranking 25th.
But with 4-time NFL MVP Peyton Manning at quarterback the Colts thrive. Manning already has 1013 passing yards, a 9/0 touchdown/interception ratio, and a 116.9 QB rating.
After an opening day win over Denver the Jacksonville Jaguars have lost two straight games to fall to a NFL football gambling record of 1-2 both straight up and against the spread. Jacksonville is coming off a 28-3 debacle to Philadelphia as 2 point home dogs as Garrard was 13-30 for 105 yards passing with an interception.
Jacksonville ranks 29th in the NFL for offense and 29th for defense. Garrard has a 66.7 QB rating and a 4/5 TD/INT ratio with a poor 6.1 yards per attempt. He still plays only because backup Luke McCown is injured.
The Colts have lost just 6 out of their last 21 games overall against the spread and are 10-4 against the line following a payout in their previous game. The Colts have gone over the total in 7 out of their last 10 games overall. Jacksonville has failed to pay out in 19 out of their last 26 games and is just 4-14 against the spread at home.

In this head to head series the two teams have gone over the NFL Football betting total in 4 out of their last 5 meetings both overall and at Jacksonville and the visitor has covered 6 consecutive games between the teams.
