Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts Pick Prediction 1/3/2020
Jaguars at Colts—NFL pick is Indianapolis Colts -14. Indianapolis has hope for a playoff spot with a win and any loss by four contenders. Jaguars will be without a strong offensive weapon as running back James Robinson will miss. Jacksonville defense has been torched surrendering 41 points to the Bears at home last week and 40 at Baltimore the week prior. Jaguars surrendering 271 yards passing, 70% completion rate and 8 yards per pass attempt on the year. Colts are a strong defense team and holding opponents to 3.7 yards per rush. Also revenge for Colts as they dropped the opener to Jacksonville so Indianapolis will be focused here. Play Colts -14.
Tennessee Titans vs. Houston Texans Pick Prediction 1/3/2020
Titans at Texans—NFL free pick Tennessee Titans and Houston Texans to play over the total of 56 points. They combined for 78 points in their first meeting. Tennessee and Houston are both poor defensive teams and bad defending the pass. Texans are surrendering 152 rushing yards per game and five yards per carry. Titans behind Derrick Henry will exploit this poor Texans defense. Deshaun Watson has put up great numbers this year. He has thrown for over 300 yards in five of six games. Tannehill in recent games has been able to exploit bad defensive teams. Play Titans and Colts over 56.
New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers Pick Prediction 1/3/2020
Saints at Panthers—Free pick is Carolina Panthers +6.5. Saints need to win and have the Seahawks and Packers lose to earn a bye in the first round. Seems like an unlikely scenario. New Orleans lost a linebacker to a torn ACL last week. Would expect Saints to rest some starters to get ready for the Wildcard round. Also, factor that New Orleans could be looking at a short week if their playoff game is on Saturday. Panthers have been competitive covering four of their past five after their seven point win at Washington. Teddy Bridgewater is completing 70% of his passes on the year. A three, four of six point margin of victory covers here no matter who wins. Play Panthers +6.5.
