Why Bet The Tennessee Titans To Beat The Jaguars
The Titans have won their last three games, including a 19-17 nail bitter against the Kansas City Chiefs last week. They are 8-6 SU and 6-8 ATS this season. They average 24.3 points per game (11th) and allow 23.1 points per game (18th).
“In this locker room, we don’t doubt,” tight end Delanie Walker said. “We know we’ve got a great thing and it’s going well. We knew we could come out here and beat them.
The Titans average 228.8 passing yards per game (23rd). QB Marcus Mariota (3327 yards, 25 TDs & 9 INTs) didn’t have a great game against the Chiefs. He completed 19 of 33 passes for 241 yards and one interception. He got the job done when the team needed it to win the game. WR Rishard Matthews (53 rec, 800 yards, 7 TDs) had four receptions for 105 yards against Kansas City. He’s the team’s leading receiver. Tennessee averages 144.7 rushing yards per game (3rd). RB DeMarco Murray (268 car, 1224 yards, 9 TDs) had 89 yards on 18 carries last week. RB Derrick Henry (91 car, 412 yards, 4 TDs) found the end zone twice.
Tennessee has the 20th total defense in the NFL. The Titans allow 267.0 passing yards per game (29th) and 91.7 rushing yards per game (7th). They have recorded 34 sacks this season (9th). Avery Williamson leads the team with 93 tackles, and Brian Orakpo has 11.0 sacks.
Why Bet The Jacksonville Jaguars To Beat The Titans
The Jacksonville Jaguars have lost nine in a row, including a 21-20 defeat against Houston last week. The defeat developed into the firing of head coach Gus Bradley. Doug Marrone will be the interim coach for the remainder of the season. The Jags are 2-12 SU and 7-7 ATS this season. They average 18.6 points per game (27th) and allow 25.6 points per game (28th).
Jacksonville averages 222.1 passing yards per game (26th). QB Blake Bortles (2704 yards, 21 TDs & 16 INTs) has the second most interceptions thrown in the NFL this season. Only the Chargers’ Philip Rivers has thrown more.
"We firmly believe that Blake Bortles is our quarterback right now," Marrone said. "We are satisfied with that. The quarterback position, and you know this — when you win, they get too much of the credit, and I know it’s cliché, but when you lose they get a lot of the blame.
Over the last few weeks, WR Marqise Lee (54 rec, 728 yards, 2 TDs) has become this team’s number one playmaker. He leads the Jags in receiving yards. He also scored a special teams’ touchdown last week against Houston. The Jaguars average 97.5 rushing yards per game (24th). The Jags need to upgrade their rush attack. RBs T.J. Yeldon (128 car, 460 yards, 1 TD) and Chris Ivory (103 car, 394 yards, 2 TDs) aren’t getting the job done.
The Jaguars have the 7th best total defense in the NFL. They allow 211.0 passing yards per game (4th) and 110.8 rushing yards per game (21st). Jacksonville recorded 26 sacks this season. Paul Posluszny has 118 tackles, and Yannick Ngakoue has 6.0 sacks.

Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
An old school betting trick that my uncle taught me was to always bet against a team that fires a coach mid-season for at least a few weeks. But we all have been betting against the Jags this season.
My final score prediction is Tennessee 27, Jacksonville 20.
