The numbers are pretty darn interesting. The Jaguars are a meager 3-24 straight up over their last 27 home games and 12-13-2 against the spread (ATS). However, this did manage a victory at home in Week 5 and because of this they find themselves as oh-so slight favorites as they host the Los Angeles Rams here in Week 6.

Betting on the Los Angeles Rams (3-2)
This is no ordinary Los Angeles Rams team. Comparing last year’s Rams to the present has shown the amount of improvement new head coach Sean McVay and other coaches have done for this organization. In their recent game, they were unable to beat NFC West rivals Seattle Seahawks as they lost by six points in a 16-10 final.
Taking the positives from this game, Los Angeles turned the ball over five times yet were still able to have a game winning drive against one of the best defenses in the league. Quarterback Jared Goff is showing why he was worth the number one selection as he passed for 288 yards and nearly had a game winning touchdown drive.
With 1,360 passing yards and seven touchdowns, Goff has already thrown for more yards and touchdowns in these five games this season compared to his rough rookie campaign. He’s been extremely well on the road this year as he’s thrown for 547 yards on 43-of-64 attempts with five touchdowns.
Betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2)
Jacksonville is already having a historic start to the season as there three wins to their name moved them atop the AFC South with a huge upset victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, In Pittsburgh. If a 30-9 victory over a top NFL teams does not get the attention of everyone else, I don’t know what else the Jags need to do to get the credit they deserve.
Jacksonville’s defense has been the showcase of this impressive start as they intercepted Ben Roethlisberger five times with two of them running into the endzone for a touchdown. When the defense allows great field position for the offense, they do not let the opportunity go away.
The fourth overall pick in the 2016 NFL draft, Leonard Fournette is proving why he should of been the first pick as his 466 rushing yards is second in the league. Now facing a weak Los Angeles rush defense, expect the rookie to claim to the top of rushing chain with a huge game.
Los Angeles has played extremely well on the road this year, and it has been a hit or miss on which Jaguars team shows up on Sunday. Pick the consistent team and the points . Pick: Rams(+2.5)
