NFL: Jaguars vs. Colts, Redskins @ NY Giants point spread and odds

 Great line-up for the opening week of the NFL season, here we will take a look at the betting odds and point spread on the games Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts and the Washington Redskins vs. NY Giants. The last time the Colts met the Jaguars Indianapolis won the game 31-24 on the road in December, while a month earlier the NY Giants plowed through the Redskins with 23-7 victory, also on the road. Let's take a look at the odds and point spreads posted at the popular online sportsbook Bookmaker and see if the bookie is expecting any surprises this NFL season.

 Beginning with the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts NFL Week 1 game, the betting numbers are just as many of you may have expected. At Bookmaker the odds are heavily stacked against the Jaguars, who are +265 underdog to win their opening game, while according to the odds makers, the game should be a breeze for the Colts, who are listed with the short odds of -315 on victory this Sunday. The Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts point spread is currently at -7 points chalk the Colts and the total posted by the sportsbook is 45 points. Betting trends show that even though Jacksonville has covered the point spread just once in its last 7 games, Indianapolis is 3-6 against the spread in its last 9 games when playing the Jaguars. The total, however, has gone OVER in 4 of the Colts last 5 games against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

 Not much to report as far as injuries in either of the two NFL teams. Jaguars tight end Zach Miller is the only player in Jacksonville missing Week 1 football, after DT Derek Landri was upgraded to probable. In Indianapolis defensive tackle Ed Johnson will continue to serve suspension until Week 2, while safety Bob Sanders and corner back Jamie Silva are out for the game against the Jaguars with injuries. Colts defensive tackle Fili Moala remains questionable for the football game on Sunday with knee issues.

 Moving on to the next NFL game on our list, the match-up between the Washington Redskins and the New York Giants. The situation here isn't much different, as expected the Giants are the odds-on favorite to win the football game this weekend, listed with -290 odds by the online sportsbook Bookmaker. The Redskins on the other side will come out on Giants Stadium as a big underdog with odds +240 on victory in their first game for the season. The Washington Redskins vs. New York Giants point spread is at -6.5 points chalk the Giants and the total set by the odds makers is currently at just 37 points. The latest betting trends show that the NY Giants are 5-2 against the spread in their last 7 games at home, while the Redskins have covered the spread only once out of the last 6 games against the Giants. Also keep in mind that the total has gone UNDER in 5 of Washington's last 5 games when playing on the road against NY Giants.

 The Redskins however have one advantage - only cornerback Carlos Rogers shows on the injury lists and he is listed as probable for the game against the Giants on Sunday. Meanwhile Giants linebacker Michael Boley is out until Week 2 serving a suspension, while CB Aaron Ross is out for opening week football with hamstring injury. Offensive tackle Adam Koets is doubtful for the game against the Redskins and so is linebacker Clint Sintim. Cornerback Kevin Dockery is questionable for NFL Week 1 participation, also nursing a hamstring injury.
