The Baltimore Ravens are making a last push for a playoff spot in the AFC, and they helped themselves move a step closer to that goal with a sensational win last Monday over the Cleveland Browns. Will the Ravens take care of business in Week 15? Or will the Jacksonville Jaguars deal them a huge blow? Check out our preview of this game below.
Betting Preview for the Jacksonville Jaguars vs Baltimore Ravens Regular Season Week 15 Game on December 20, 2020
Where: M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore
When: Sunday, December 20, 2020, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: CBS
Betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars (+13)
Regular Season Record: 1-12
The Jaguars were fed with another loss by the football gods last week, when they ate a 31-10 loss at home at the hands of the Tennessee Titans. That’s the Jags’ 12th loss in a row since scoring their lone win thus far on the season in Week 1. But if there’s one good thing the Jags have this season, that’s definitely running back James Robinson. The rookie tailback rushed 15 times for 67 yards against the Titans and in the process, became just the fourth undrafted rookie in NFL history to rack up at least 1,000 rushing yards in a season. He will look to add more this coming Sunday against Baltimore, which is only 21st in the league with 4.5 yards allowed per carry. Under center, Jags head coach Doug Marrone said that the team will revert back to Gardner Minshew as the starter. Minshew has 2,033 passing yards and 14 touchdowns with five interceptions on the season. The Jags could face a still-tired Ravens team, which is playing on a short week.
The Jags are 2-0 against the spread in their last two road games.
Betting on the Baltimore Ravens (-13)
Regular Season Record: 7-5
Lamar Jackson and the Ravens are coming off arguably the best game of the season. The Ravens defeated the Cleveland Browns on the road in Week 14, 47-42, thanks in large part to the heroics of Jackson and kicker Justin Tucker, who drilled in the game-winning field goal. Jackson passed for a touchdown and rushed for two more in that game, and there’s not a lot of reasons why he will not be exploding again in Week 15. First of all, he is Lamar Jackson. But also, he will be playing against a Jaguars defense that has served the role of a punching bag to every team it faced this season. The Jaguars are 28th in the league in scoring defense (20.5 points allowed per game) and last overall in total defense (418.9 total yards allowed per game). Even without Marquise Brown (reserve/COVID-19 list), the Ravens have enough weapons to torch the Jags.
The over is 3-0 in the Ravens’ last three home games.
The Ravens win, 33-19.
