Betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars (+9)
Regular Season Record: 2-10
At this point, the Jaguars are probably more interested in securing the highest pick possible in the 2022 NFL Draft than winning games, whether they admit it or not. Then again, Urban Meyer really needs to show that he is doing something to improve the Jags, who are coming off a devastating 37-7 road loss to the Los Angeles Rams in Week 13. They will meet the Titans again this coming weekend, but the biggest headache for them in that contest won’t be around this time around. Derrick Henry, who scored three rushing touchdowns in the Jags’ 37-19 Week 5 loss at home to Tennessee, is done for the season. Moreover, both AJ Brown and Julio Jones could still be unavailable to play in Week 13, with the two wide receivers still on the injured reserve, as of this writing.
The Jaguars are 5-5 against the spread in their last 10 games overall.
Betting on the Tennessee Titans (-9)
Regular Season Record: 8-4
Tennessee is on a two-game losing skid, so a game against a weak Jaguars team could just be what the doctor ordered for Ryan Tannehill and company. The Titans lost to the Houston Texans at home in Week 11, 22-13, then to the New England Patriots in Foxborough in Week 12, 36-14, before taking a bye in Week 1. After putting up just 13 points in each of their last two games and despite potentially missing Jones and Brown again on top of the absence of Henry, the Titans should still feel confident in their ability to move the chains and come up with a more lethal attack against the Jaguars. For one, Jacksonville is one of the worst defensive teams in the NFL. It’s a team that surrendered 37 points to the Texans in Week 1 and 21 to the Calvin Ridley-less Atlanta Falcons in Week 12.
The Titans, who are averaging 25.3 points, are 3-2 against the spread in their last five home games.
The Jaguars win, 22-20.
