The Colts failed to reach the playoffs for a second straight season. Now with nothing at stake, how will they finish their 2016 campaign? Here’s our take complete with week 17 NFL picks.

 Jacksonville Jaguars vs Indianapolis Colts

 

Point Spread Value

The Indianapolis Colts were eliminated in Oakland last weekend behind a gut-wrenching 33-25 loss. Week 17 looms meaningless as a result, a divisional matchup against the Jaguars that are long out of the frame. The Jaguars did show a pulse in week 16 with an upset over the Titans, so they can’t be dismissed out of hand. Blake Bortles is playing for his future as a franchise quarterback and that could prove the difference in the last lap of the regular season. This could be closer than the oddsmakers would have it for week 17 NFL picks.

 The Survivor

The Colts failed to come through for their backers in week 16 in Oakland despite boasting one of the best-paid quarterbacks in the league. It leaves a lot to be desired as the Colts miss the playoffs for a second straight season. There’s really not a whole lot to play for save for pride and to give their home fans something to cheer about. Colts should win to finish at least on a respectable 8-8-0 SU record.

Game Total

For the final lap of the season, the Jaguars and Colts are slated to deliver a right shootout; that is if the NFL odds were any indication. It’s a relatively high total books trot out at the sports betting exchange and early NFL betting trends are pushing it up.
