IT’S London calling for week four of the NFL as the Jackosonville Jaguars face Indianapolis Colts at Wembley on Sunday afternoon.
Jordan says: “Looking at the London game on Sunday, the Jaguars will host the Colts who will be making their first trip to London, while the Jaguars have experience here playing in each of the last three seasons.
“Through three games the Colts are averaging 31.7 points against them per game which is 30th in the NFL. The London games are tough for any team but they do get the bye afterwards. Chances are if the Colts are giving up points in their homeland, the trip will almost certainly yield more.
“Blake Bortles is a decent fantasy QB but he’s always inclined to turn the ball over. However they do have the offense to put up points as they did here last season when they scored 34 against Rex Ryan’s so called good Bills defense. The Colts are hurting on both sides of the ball and placed LB Trent Cole on IR this week, with players still missing from the secondary, the Jags should get their points.
“Flip to the other side and the Jags despite making big free agent signings and a top corner in the draft, they are still giving up 28 points per game and have given up 31 or more in every game in London. Andrew Luck is a top QB, but his problem has been protection from the o line. He did rally the Colts to comeback against the Chargers on one of the last plays of the game and are averaging 27 points through their three games.
“The total is set at 48.5 @, and I’m going to take that to go over. Both teams that struggle on defense but have big offensive weapons (take Mondays game in New Orleans for example) are primed for overs, and add the fact both teams are making 4,000+ mile journeys and playing at 9:30AM on their body clocks. It bodes well for points imo.”
NFL Week 4 – Bet 1
Jacksonville Jaguars/Indianapolis Colts Over 48.5 Total Points @ 5-6 @– 3 points
