Why Bet The Denver Broncos To Beat The Jaguars
The Denver Broncos are currently out of the playoff picture after losing 30-27 to the Kansas City Chiefs last week. They are 7-4 SU and ATS this season. They average 24.2 points per game (13th) and give up 19.9 points per game (9th).
The Broncos average 237.5 passing yards per game (22nd). QB Trevor Siemian (2396 yards, 15 TDs & 7 INTs) had a great game against the Chiefs. He completed 30 of 34 passes for 386 yards and three touchdowns. Siemian didn’t practice on Wednesday with a sprained foot and was spotted with a walking boot. If he can’t go rookie Paxton Lynch (393 yards, 2 TDs & 1 INTs) will be under center.
"I’ll be a lot more comfortable out there than I was for the first time," Lynch said. "I feel a lot more comfortable than where I was when I started that game, so we’ll just see day-to-day what happens.”
WR Emmanuel Sanders (61 rec, 830 yards, 4 TDs) is now the team’s leader in receiving yards and receptions. He caught seven balls for 162 yards and one touchdown last week. WR Demaryius Thomas (60 rec, 738 yards, 5 TDs) has missed Peyton Manning. Denver averages 99.8 rushing yards per game (19th). Rookie RB Devontae Booker (128 car, 475 yards, 2 TDs) averages just 3.7 yards per carry.
Denver has the 4th best total defense in the NFL. They allow 194.0 passing yards per game (1st) and 120.0 rushing yards per game (27th). T.J. Ward leads the team with 69 tackles, and Von Miller has 12.5 sacks.
Why Bet The Jacksonville Jaguars To Beat The Broncos
The Jacksonville Jaguars are on a six game skid. They lost 28-21 against the Buffalo Bills last week. They are 2-9 SU 6-5 ATS this season. They average 19.5 points per game (26th) and allow 26.6 points (27th).
The Jaguars average 237.3 passing yards per game (21st). QB Blake Bortles (2749 yards, 20 TDs & 13 INTs) has thrown at least one interception in eight straight games.

The Jaguars average 96.3 rushing yards per game (24th). Both tailbacks Chris Ivory (93 car, 350 yards, 2 TDs) and T.J. Yeldon (89 car, 318 yards, 1 TDs) have missed practices this week due to hamstring injuries.
