The Los Angeles Rams are looking to stop the bleeding, and they can do that with a win this weekend against the going-nowhere Jacksonville Jaguars. But will the Jaguars pull off another shocker of a victory this season? Check out our preview of this game below.

Betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars (+13)
Regular Season Record: 2-9
It’s another lost season for the Jaguars, who are coming off a 21-14 home loss to the Atlanta Falcons — Jacksonville’s third straight. Trevor Lawrence is still struggling to figure things out in the pros, but the overall state of Jacksonville isn’t helping the rookie out. Against the Falcons, Lawrence passed for 228 yards and a touchdown with an interception on 23/42 completions. It’s going to be tough for him to put up a strong performance in Week 13 against Los Angeles. The Rams, however, don’t seem to be alright. Whatever it is that is not going right for the Rams is a definite plus for the Jaguars, who are averaging just 15.7 points per game, so far this season. Remember also that the Jaguars defeated the Buffalo Bills at home back in Week 9. The Jags are capable of landing a stunning upset.
The Jaguars are 4-0 against the spread in their last four road games versus a team with a winning home record.
Betting on the Los Angeles Rams (-13)
Regular Season Record: 7-4
The Rams have lost all of their last three games. A game against the lowly Jaguars could just be exactly what the doctor ordered for Los Angeles to regain its footing. The Rams are coming off a 36-28 road loss to the Green Bay Packers in Week 12. That’s a Packers team with Aaron Rodgers under center. Up next for the Rams is a matchup against the Jags, who have a rookie under center and lots of malfunctioning pieces on both ends of the field. While the Rams are undeniably in a rut, they are still the much better team than Jacksonville. Matthew Stafford can cook the Jags’ defense that 26th in the league in points allowed per game (25.7), interception rate (1.39%), and sack rate (5.03%). Von Miller and Aaron Donald could end up full by eating Lawrence’s lunch, as LA’s pass rush is ninth in the NFL in sack rate.
The Rams are 7-3-1 against the spread in their last 11 games in December.
The Rams win, 34-13.
