Bet Jacksonville Because…
Jacksonville has won three straight and four of their last five games including their hard-fought 20-17 overtime win against the Chargers this past Sunday. The Jags got the win on OT on Josh Lambo’s 30-yard field goal despite seeing Blake Bortles toss two interceptions and just one TD pass as their defense sacked Philip Rivers three times and picked off the veteran once while recording one fumble recovery.
Bet Cleveland Because…
The Browns put up one of their best efforts all season but fell apart late in their 38-24 road loss at Detroit by getting shutout in the final quarter and giving up two touchdowns to Detroit in the final frame. Rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer was solid after getting the start as he tossed one TD pass and one interception while rushing for 57 yards and another score in the win. Unfortunately, Cleveland has allowed at least 33 points in three of their last four games while also scoring 14 points or less in three of their last six losses.
Jacksonville Vs Cleveland Betting Predictions
For the Browns and head coach Hue Jackson, there are no moral victories in the NFL. Cleveland is going to be hard-pressed to get past a Jacksonville team that has some legitimate hopes of winning the AFC South and reaching the playoffs this season. The Jaguars have a defense that leads the NFL with fewest points allowed (14.8 ppg) and a powerful rushing attack that will chew up the clock and help them narrowly cover the chalk in this one.
Jacksonville is 8-4 ATS in their last 12 games while Cleveland has gone 1-7ATS in their last eight. Simply put, go with the 61 percent of public bettors that like the Jags on the road in this Week 11 matchup.
