Why Bet On Jacksonville?There aren’t many good reasons to back Jacksonville outside of the fact that the Jags picked up a 20-16 win over the reeling Oakland Raiders last weekend. The Jags have been limited to 20 points or less in six straight games while giving up 28 points or more in four of those contests.
Jacksonville has gone a respectable 5-5 under rookie quarterback Gardner Minshew II and the first-year signal-caller has been solid in throwing 17 TD passes against just five interceptions. Unfortunately, the Jags average an uninspiring 17.9 points per game (27th) while giving up 25.2 points per contest defensively (23rd).

Atlanta averages 23.5 points per contest (15th) while allowing 26.1 points per game defensively (25th). Veteran quarterback Matt Ryan has thrown at least two TD passes in four of Atlanta’s last six games.

Expert Analysis & Prediction for Jaguars vs FalconsWhile Jacksonville snapped a five-game skid by upsetting Oakland last weekend, I don’t think the Jags have nearly enough offense to keep up with the still dangerous Falcons. Atlanta has looked like a completely different team since coming back from their bye week and basically, the team we all thought they would be before the start of the regular season.
Not only are the Falcons playing very well on both sides of the ball, but Matt Ryan and company have also gone 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in December and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. Jacksonville has gone a discouraging 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a straight up win and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. No matter how I look at it, the Falcons come out on top in this one!
Score: Jacksonville Jaguars 17 – Atlanta Falcons 31
