The Jaguars have lost five straight games, dropping to 2-7 SU and 5-5 ATS. Last week they dropped a winnable game against the Detroit Lions with a 26-19 result. They average 19.3 points per game (27th) and give up 26.5 points per game (25th).
“Once you accept losing, that’s when you become a loser,” Jaguars rookie Jalen Ramsey said. “I’m not a loser. I was pretty pissed off.”
Jacksonville averages 249.9 passing yards per game (17th). QB Blake Bortles (2623 yards, 18 TDs & 13 INTs) has thrown seven interceptions in the last seven games and is dealing with a shoulder injury. WR Allen Robinson (51 rec, 567 yards, 6 TDs) has caught at least one touchdown in the last three games. The Jaguars average 87.6 rushing yards per game (26th). RB Chris Ivory (84 car, 306 yards, 1 TD) had only 39 yards on 17 carries against the Lions last week.
The Jaguars have the 7th best total defense in the NFL. Jacksonville gives up 210.0 passing yards per game (5th) and 113.0 rushing yards per game (23rd). Paul Posluszny has 85 tackles, and Yannick Ngakoue has 5.0 sacks.
Why Bet The Buffalo Bills To Beat The Jaguars
The Buffalo Bills snapped a three-game losing streak by beating the Bengals 16-12 last week. They are 5-5 SU and 5-4-1 ATS this season. They average 25.3 points per game (10th) and allow 21.5 points per game (12th).
Buffalo averages 185.7 passing yards per game (32nd). QB Tyrod Taylor (1935 yards, 10 TDs & 4 INTs) completed 19 of 27 passes for 166 yards and one interception against Cincinnati. WR Robert Woods (42 rec, 493 yards, 1 TD) is not expected to play Sunday because of a knee injury. The good news is WR Sammy Watkins (6 rec, 63 yards, 0 TD) might see some time against the Jags. Watkins has been cleared to practice even though he remains on the injured reserve/designated to return list.
"I’m speaking on behalf of every Buffalo Bills fan: I hope he can play some," Ryan said, via ESPN.com.
The Bills average 157.8 rushing yards per game (1st). RB LeSean McCoy (138 car, 716 yards, 7 TDs) is dealing with a thumb injury. He had only 33 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals last week.

Jaguars Vs Bills ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
The public bets are coming in on the Bills (5-5 SU and a very respectable 5-3-2 ATS) after their bye week. The money on Buffalo is most likely signally public confidence fading for the Jags, who continue to scuffle along at 2-8 SU and 3-6-1 ATS.
The opening line of Buffalo -6.5 lasted less than 15 minutes on Sunday afternoon with sharp bets joining with the public in pushing this through the key NFL betting spread of 7.
My final score prediction is Jacksonville 17, Buffalo 21.
