The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are struggling to be a consistent team, as what their record shows. Despite that, they still have a shot to make the playoffs, though, they can’t afford any missteps along the way. The Jacksonville Jaguars, meanwhile, are also long shots to make the playoffs, and their main target right now is to end a three-game losing skid. The Bucs and the Jags are +100000 and +300000 to win Super Bowl 54, respectively.
Betting Preview for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Jacksonville Jaguars NFL Regular Season Week 13 Game on December 1, 2019
Where: TIAA Bank Field, Jacksonville
When: Sunday, December 1, 2019, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX/ESPN/CBS
Betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-7)
Jameis Winston is still a turnover machine, but the Falcons overcame their quarterback’s proneness to give away the football to the other side last Sunday in a 35-22 road win over the Atlanta Falcons. Winston passed for 313 yards and three touchdowns on 18-of-28 completions, but he added to his growing total of interceptions this season with two picks thrown. The Bucs have Blaine Gabbert but it would still be surprising if Bruce Arians bench Winston in favor of Gabbert. Despite Winston’s adventurous starts, his chemistry with the Bucs’ talented wideout duo of Chris Godwin and Mike Evans can’t be understated. Godwin had 184 receiving yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Falcons, while Evans had 50 on four catches. Each was targeted eight times. But the Bucs can opt to increase their activity on the ground in Week 13 against the Jags’ rushing defense that is only 29th in the league with 142.3 rushing yards allowed per game.
The over is 9-0 in the Bucs’ last nine games overall.
Betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars (4-7)
Even though Nick Foles has returned to assume the starting duties under center for the Jaguars, there hasn’t been much of a difference made in Jacksonville’s play. In their last game, the Jags got buried by the Tennessee Titans in a 42-20 road loss in Week 12. Foles passed for 272 yards with zero touchdowns on 32-of-48 completions. But at least, he did not get picked off. The Jags’ offense mostly depended on running back Leonard Fournette, who rushed for 97 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries. The Jags might have the idea of feeding the ball more to Fournette, but they will still need their passing attack to open things up for the former LSU Tigers star tailback against the Bucs. Tampa Bay has the second-best rushing defense in the NFL with only 78.7 rushing yards allowed per game.
The under is 3-1 in the Jags’ last four home games.
The Bucs win, 27-20.
