Why the L.A. Chargers are a good bet  -3?

Los Angeles’ offense hasn’t played as well as it did last season. But the defense has played great. The Chargers rank 4th in total yards allowed. Opponents average 309.2 yards per against LAC. No opponent has success throwing the football. Los Angeles hold their foes to 199.3 passing yards per. Unless the defense implodes, it will contain Jacksonville’s offense. On the other side of the ball, the Jags should have trouble keeping the Chargers from scoring touchdowns.

Why the Jacksonville Jaguars are a good bet +3?

In Week 13, Jacksonville made a key change at halftime. They benched Nick Foles and put in Gardner Minshew. Minshew led the team to a second-half victory. While Tampa outscored the Jags 25-0 in the first half, the Jaguars outscored the Buccaneers 8-6 in the second half. Now that Minshew is the starter the rest of the season, Jacksonville’s offense should get consistent.

  • Total Yards: 359.4
  • Passing Yards: 246
  • Rushing Yards: 113.4
  • Points Scored: 18.3
Defense:

Chargers vs Jaguars Final NFL Betting Analysis

On paper, the Chargers tower over the Jaguars. But Los Angeles finds a way to lose close football games. Why? The offense is a mess.

Even though the Chargers have a couple of great running backs in Austin Ekeler and Melvin Gordon, they haven’t produced points. Los Angeles only averages 20.3 points per game. That’s not enough in the NFL to challenge teams like Kansas City and Baltimore.

Jacksonville had no Super Bowl dreams before the season started. The Chargers did. Now that those dreams are up in smoke, LAC has nothing to play for. Gardner Minshew does. Minshew threw for 147 yards and a TD in one half versus Tampa. He should have a better game on Sunday. The Jags beat the Bolts straight up.
