The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Oakland Raiders are two teams better off planning what they should do in the offseason. However, they still need to finish their respective assignments, including a date with each other this coming Sunday in Oakland.

Betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars (4-9)
The Jaguars suffered yet another loss last Sunday, falling prey to the Los Angeles Chargers at home, 45-10. It was the Jags’ fifth loss in a row. In all those losses, the Jags looked lifeless, as they have been blown out by at least 17 points in each of those defeats. Gardner Minshew started for the Jags against the Chargers but he seems to be nothing more than a novelty for the Jags as Jacksonville tries to squeeze any remaining feel-good essence from the rookie to draw waning interest in the team by its own fans. It’s possible that the Jags will get Nick Foles back on the field, as they can’t just afford having an expensive offseason acquisition watching the action from the sidelines. But they can also opt to continue developing Minshew in these meaningless games. Whichever quarterback the Jags use in Week 15, he’ll be facing the Raiders’ wet paper bag pass defense that is allowing the 28th most passing yards per game.
The over is 3-1 in the Jags’ last four games.
Betting on the Oakland Raiders (6-7)
The Raider can kiss their playoff hopes goodbye. They are highly unlikely to be playing football past Week 17 after getting thrashed in a 42-21 home loss to the Tennessee Titans last Sunday. Derek Carr passed for 263 yards and two touchdowns on 25-of-34 completions and was sacked twice for a loss of just four yards. The Raiders have one of the best pass protection in the NFL, and they will have to show that this coming Sunday against the Jags, who own the fourth best defensive sack percentage in the NFL right now. The Raiders’ offensive line is also hoping that they will be blocking for rookie runnign back Josh Jacobs agains the Jags. Jacobs missed Week 14’s Titans game due to a shoulder issue. Given the circumstance the Raiders are in, it’s possible that they will just let Jacobs sit than risk him to injury in a game that barely matters. In that case, the Raiders will rely on the tandem of DeAndre Washington and Kalen Richard on the ground.
The Raiders are 5-5 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 games.
The Raiders win, 27-23.
