Posted by Eric Williams on September 21, 2016 in

Now, let’s find out which team is offering the most online betting value in this AFC matchup.

A Closer Look At The NFL Winning Favorites Jaguars Vs Ravens

When: Sunday, September 25, 2016 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: EverBank Field
Live Stream: CBS Sports Network
NFL Odds: Jacksonville Jaguars +1 / Over/Under: 47.5



Bet The Baltimore Ravens at -1 Because…

The Ravens are superior in all three phases of the game. Baltimore Ravens came roaring back from a 20-point deficit to beat the lowly Cleveland Browns 25-20 in Week 2. Veteran quarterback Joe Flacco completed 25 of 45 passes for 3-2 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions while tight end Dennis Pitta hauled in nine passes for 102 yards and wide receiver Mike Wallace added two touchdown grabs.

For the season, Flacco is completing a solid 60.3 percent of his passes with three TD passes and two interceptions. Defensively, Baltimore is limiting their opponents to just 13.5 points and 273.5 yards per game.

Bet The Jacksonville Jaguars at +1 Because…

The Jaguars are completely desperate! Jacksonville got beaten to a pulp in their humbling 38-14 Week 2 loss to San Diego as quarterback Blake Bortles completed 31 of 50 pass attempts for 329 yards and two touchdowns. Unfortunately, Bortles also tossed two costly interceptions and the Jaguars’ defense allowed Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers to toss four TD passes in the loss. Jacksonville is allowing its opponents to put up a whopping 32.5 points and 325.5 yards per game.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

I have no idea why the Baltimore Ravens are just 1-point road favorites in this contest seeing as how Jacksonville looks nothing like the playoff-hopeful team they thought they would be this season and Baltimore is finding ways to win games even when they’re not firing on all cylinders. Jacksonville is 10-22-1 ATS in their last 33 home games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games against their AFC conference rivals.

Baltimore is 4-0 ATS in their last four games against AFC teams, 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games against a team with a losing record and a pristine 5-0 ATS following an SU win. Forget about the fact that the underdog in this rivalry has gone 7-3-3 ATS in the last 13 meetings. With the spread being just one point, the ravens are the easy pick to win and cash in against the NFL betting line.

My Pick: Baltimore 28 Jacksonville 17
