The Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars meet up in London, England on Sunday morning in an AFC South matchup across the pond.
The Colts will look to extend Jacksonville’s miserable start to the season as the teams take to the field at Wembley Stadium in London on Sunday and they will turn to Andrew Luck and their high powered offense to grab a divisional win. Indy hasn’t had a great start in their own accord this season in terms of wins and losses but they probably deserve a bit better fate as they have put up some strong performances but still have a disappointing 1-2 record. Indy is getting healthy on the defensive side of the ball though and that could create headaches for a Jags team that was expecting to be one of the best offensive units in the AFC this season after a strong campaign last year from Blake Bortles and Allen Robinson. Vontae Davis could be back for this one as he will look to keep the passing game in check and with Luck matched up against Bortles I am baffled at the line on this one right now.

The Jags were expected to be one of the breakout teams in the NFL this season but instead they are the same old Jags as they are 0-3 and could fall to 0-4 and hit the quarter season mark without a victory. Jacksonville does have a ton of weapons on both sides of the ball including rookie defensive back Jalen Ramsey who has made waves through his first three starts in the NFL and will likely match up with TY Hilton in this one who is emerging as really the only threat for the Colts through the air. The Jags will also look to their defensive front seven to create pressure on Luck who has looked good through three weeks and certainly gives them the edge behind center in this matchup.
The Colts are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games in week four, 19-7-1 in their last 27 against the AFC South, and 5-2 ATS in their last seven following a win while the Jags are 1-4 ATS in their last five week four games, 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 against the AFC, and 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight against the AFC South. Indy has been the better of the two teams here and in a London show down that typically is very sloppy I think the Colts get the cover as they have the better quarterback.
