Why Bet The LA Rams To Beat The Jaguars
The Rams need to give their second-year QB Jared Goff time to find his receivers. Last week under pressure from the Legion of Boom Goff turned the ball over three times in a losing effort to the Seahawks.
“Just take care of the ball and the rest takes care of itself,” Rams running back Todd Gurley said after the game. “We just weren’t able to do that, but it’s stuff we can fix for sure. Taking care of the ball, we will definitely get that fixed for sure.”
Goff has thrown seven touchdowns and just three interceptions in 2017. He’s averaging 8.29 yards per pass, the fifth-best number in the NFL this year. As long as the Rams give their QB time and Gurley at his back, Goff will find open receivers downfield. After being the top scoring offense in the league, the Rams dropped to second, averaging 30.4 PPG, after their loss to Seattle.
Why Bet The Jacksonville Jaguars To Beat The Rams
The Jaguars defense is turning heads this season. They are a younger, hungrier version of the Legion of Boom. That is bad news for the Rams.
The Jags intercepted Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger five times last week in their surprising upset over Pitt. Two of those picks were returned for scores. In total Jax has recovered five fumbles and picked off opposing QBs ten times, leading the league in both categories. But it all starts with the defensive line pressure. Jacksonville leads the NFL with 20.0 sacks.

Rams Vs. Jaguars Week 6 Betting Analysis
The Jaguars are rarely a favorite. This week they are actually laying 2.5-points. Usually visiting teams are given 3-points just for playing on the road.
Even after the Rams disappointing loss to the Seahawks, 70% of the early money is on Los Angeles. Am I the only one thinking it foolish to sleep on Jacksonville. The club pulled off the biggest upset of Week 5, blowing out the Pittsburgh Steelers, 30-9, after going into the matchup as a seven-point underdog.
Bet the Jags.
