NFL Week 1 Prediction

Handicappers expect the Jacksonville Jaguars to be on top of the AFC South this season. Thus, football betting sites predict they will win the Jaguars vs Colts game in the opening week of the NFL season.

Betting Analysis and Predictions

Jaguars vs Colts Betting Picks – NFL Week 1 PredictionAll indications are that Richardson will be Indianapolis’ starting quarterback to begin the 2023 season. Richardson’s draft stock skyrocketed in the offseason due to his exceptional athleticism. His time at the University of Florida wasn’t very fruitful, but he still had plenty of suitors because of his playmaking skills.

The combination of Richardson’s rushing skills and that of All-Pro running back Jonathan Taylor should give the Colts a formidable ground game.

Jacksonville has more talent than Indianapolis has. The Jaguars dominated the AFC South and pushed the Kansas City Chiefs to the brink in the AFC Divisional Round last year. Trevor Lawrence’s star is on the rise and on an exponential curve. Despite having to play in a potentially unfriendly environment on the road in Indianapolis, Jacksonville should be able to beat Indy by at least 10 points.

According to bookie software reports, the 2022 Jaguars season ended on a high note, and they will be looking to extend that success into the 2023 NFL season.
