Washington attempts to keep their slim playoff hopes alive when they travel to Jacksonville to take on the struggling Jaguars. Washington started the season as one of the best teams in the NFC. They’ve lost 4 straight and 5-of-6, though. Can the Redskins get back on track, or will the Jags nail down the coffin lid?

Why Washington Redskins are a good bet +7?

The Redskins have been awful in their last 4 games, but there could be hope versus the Jaguars on Sunday. Washington starting quarterback Mark Sanchez won’t have to carry the team because Jacksonville’s terrible against the rush. Future hall of fame running back Adrian Peterson has 872 yards and 8 touchdowns this season. If Jay Gruden leans on Peterson, the RB can dominate a soft Jaguars’ front seven. That’s the way the team from D.C. can win straight up on Dec. 16.

Why Jacksonville Jaguars are a good bet -7?

Are the Jaguars a safe bet for NFL Week 15?

Jacksonville is a different team at home than they are on the road. While the Jaguars have lost 6 on the road this season, they’ve got a .500 record at home. One of the home losses doesn’t even count because the Jags were the home team against Philadelphia at Wembley Stadium in England.

Jacksonville should have beaten Pittsburgh at home on Nov. 18. They did beat Indianapolis 6-0 in a home game on Dec. 2. The Jags should be fired up to dominate a team down on their luck this Sunday.

Redskins vs Jaguars Final NFL Betting Analysis

This is a tough game to handicap because Washington’s playing so badly. Then again, the Jaguars haven’t been great. They allowed Tennessee running back Derrick Henry to rush for 4 touchdowns in their last.

Henry and Adrian Peterson aren’t the same running back. AP’s one of the greatest to ever carry the pigskin. He’s better than Henry. If Coach Gruden sets up a strategy around Peterson carrying the football, Washington can upset the Jaguars on the moneyline. Taking the points is a no-brainer.
