We are still a few months away from the NFL kickoff, although, we have taken the time to review the NFL spreads and make an eye-opening analysis and futures bet predictions on the 2016 Jacksonville Jaguars that will increase your chances of winning this coming season.
Taking A Closer Look at the Jacksonville Jaguars Top NFL Spreads For the 2016 NFL Regular Season
A good first day of minicamp.

Indianapolis Colts (-3.5) at Jacksonville
Analysis: The Colts are one of my picks to have a great bounce-back campaign in 2016 after suffering through an injury-riddled 2015 season in which they missed the postseason, but it is the Jacksonville Jaguars that are my pick to get the ATS cover at home in this Week 4 AFC South Divisional match up.
Jacksonville snapped a four-game losing against Indy by pounding them senseless in a 51-16 blowout at home last season while covering the NFL betting line in both of last season’s two divisional clashes. I love what Jacksonville accomplished in the off season and I think they bring their collective ‘A’ game to get the home win in this one.
The Pick: Jacksonville 28 Indianapolis 27
Jacksonville at Chicago Bears (-3.5)
Analysis: I don’t have the Jags winning many road games in 2016, but this is a match up I believe they can pull of the upset in. Sure, Jacksonville is just 1-9 SU in its last 10 road games, but they’re also 2-2-1 ATS in their last five road dates and 5-4-1 ATS in their L/10 road contests. Besides, when you’re going up against a Jay Cutler-led team, you always have a shot!
The Pick: Jacksonville 24 Chicago 21
Oakland Raiders at Jacksonville (PK)
Analysis: I know the Oakland Raiders are a team on the rise and that they have a gifted young quarterback and wide receiver in Derek Carr and Amari Cooper, but I believe the improving Jags are going to view this Week 7 match up as a contest they should win against a team that is in the same boat as far as their respective rebuilding efforts. I know the Raiders are a perfect 3-0 ATS in their last three road games and 5-1 ATS in their last six road dates overall, but they’ve also lost three of their last five road games outright while going 4-6 SU over their last 10 road dates overall.
Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles doesn’t quite get the same amount of love as Carr, but the two young signal-callers have virtually identical career statistics. I like Bortles and the Jags to hold it down at home in this one!
The Pick: Jacksonville 31 Oakland 28
Houston Texans (-1) at Jacksonville
Analysis: While I’ve got the Houston Texans wining at least nine games for the third straight season in 2016, but I also believe they’re going to split their two regular season AFC South division match ups against Jacksonville with each team winning at home. I know Jacksonville got smacked around in both regular season meeting in 2015 and also dropped their two match ups against Houston in 2014, but that’s one of the reasons I like the Jags to get the big division home win this time around and improve their underwhelming 4-6 ATS mark in their last 10 home games against the Texans.
The Pick: Jacksonville 27 Houston 24
Jacksonville at Buffalo Bills (-5)
Analysis: The Bills won their final four home games a year ago while covering the NFL betting line each time, but they also went 1-3 SU and ATS in their first four home dates under loud-mouthed Rex Ryan a year ago and I believe they could be ripe for the upset in this Week 12 pairing. Sure, the Bills will be looking to extract some revenge against the Jaguars for their humbling 34-31 road loss to the Jags last season, but I’m thinking this contest has the look of a classic field goal game that ends with three points separating these AFC playoff hopefuls. Jacksonville covers the NFL betting line in a heart breaker!
The Pick: Buffalo 27 Jacksonville 24
Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville (-4.5)
Analysis: The Jags were on the wrong end of a crushing 42-39 road loss against Tennessee in their second regular season meeting a year ago, but recorded a six-point win at home over the Titans last season to cash in as a 3-point home favorite and have compiled a blistering 7-1-2 ATS mark in their last 10 games against Tennessee while also going 4-1 SU and 4-0-1 ATS in their last five home dates against the Titans overall. I say, bet the Jags as my final NFL futures bet predictions pick!
The Pick: Jacksonville 35 Tennessee 31
