Cash in As Titans Host Jaguars in AFC South NFL Betting Battle

NFL Betting Game Preview: Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans
When: 1:00 PM ET, Sunday, December 6, 2015
Where: Nissan Stadium, Nashville, Tennessee
NFL Odds: Tennessee -2.5
Betting on the Tennessee Titans (2-9 SU, 4-7 ATS)
Tennessee is coming off a narrow 24-21 home loss against Oakland as a 1-point underdog the last time out. Oakland was lifted to victory when quarterback Derek Carr threw a 12-yard touchdown pass to Seth Roberts with 1:21 remaining in regulation.
”I’m really proud of the way they guys stayed in it,” Oakland coach Jack Del Rio said.
The Titans have lost nine of their last 10 games and 11 consecutive home contests heading into Week 13. Rookie signal-caller Mariota threw for 218 yards and three touchdowns in the loss, but he was picked off twice.
Betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars (4-7 SU, 6-5 ATS)
The Jaguars had their modest two-game winning streak snapped in their 31-25 loss to San Diego on Sunday while failing to cover the NFL betting line as 5-point favorites.
Quarterback Blake Bortles completed 30 of 49 passes for 329 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception, but the Jags allowed Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers to throw four touchdown passes in the loss while scoring on just two of their four red zone possessions.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans Game Analysis
I have no idea why a convincing 57 percent of the betting public likes Tennessee to win and cover the spread in this Week 13 AFC South divisional battle, but I sure don’t.
Not only has Tennessee lost three straight games and a whopping nine of 10 overall, but Jacksonville has been playing really solid football and put up another great effort last weekend despite having their modest two-game winning streak snapped. The Jaguars have won three of five and their last two losses have come by a combined nine points.
The Jaguars are 5-1 ATS in their last six games following an ATS loss, a robust 4-1 ATS in their last five games against their AFC South division rivals and a bankroll-boosting 7-2 ATS in their last nine games following an SU loss.
The Titans are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following an ATS loss, 6-19-2 ATS in their last 27 home games and a pitiful 4-21-2 ATS in their last 27 games against their AFC South division rivals.
Last but not least, Jacksonville has gone 4-1 ATS in their last five road games against Tennessee and a nearly perfect 4-0-1 ATS in their last five meetings against the Titans overall.
My Betting Pick: Jacksonville 27 Tennessee 24
