Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Los Angeles Rams Predictions

After selecting QB Trevor Lawrence with the first overall pick in the latest NFL Draft, Jacksonville stumbled out to an incredibly disappointing start to the new season, as the Jaguars posted losses in five straight games to open the year – before finally knocking off the Dolphins for their first win in Week 6 (W, 23-20).

Jacksonville has miserably struggled on offense since picking up its first victory though, considering the Jaguars have averaged just 11.4 PPG on 283 YPG across their latest five-game stretch.

On the other hand, Los Angeles jumped out to an impressive start with new QB Matthew Stafford under center, as the Rams kicked things off with wins in seven of their first eight games – which included solid victories over the Colts, Buccaneers, and Seahawks.

The Rams have struggled since the onset of November though, considering L.A. enters this Sunday’s contest riding a three-game losing streak – which consists of tough losses to the Titans, Niners, and Packers.

I’ll lay the points with L. A. here, as Jacksonville has scored 17 PTS or less in five straight games (11.4 PPG) – which likely won’t be enough juice to compete with the Rams this Sunday.

The Rams enter Sunday’s contest favored by roughly two touchdowns over the visiting Jaguars – marking the third time Jacksonville has been favored by 10+ PTS this season.

The total for Sunday’s matchup is currently stationed near OU 48 at most shops, which marks the highest bar set for a Jaguars’ game since hosting Tennessee back in Week 5.

Jacksonville Jaguars Betting Analysis

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 2-9
  • ATS: 4-7
  • O/U: 2-9
  • ATS - Home: 2-5
  • ATS - Away: 2-2

After selecting Lawrence with the first pick in the latest draft, Jacksonville went into the new season with relatively high expectations, as the Jaguars entered their Week 1 matchup against Houston as a three-point favorite.

Jacksonville got spanked in that game though, and Vegas hasn’t made the same mistake since, considering the Jaguars have been underdogs in 10 straight games – and rightfully so, as Jacksonville ranks 31st in scoring and 23rd in total offense (15.7 PPG, 322.8 YPG).

Los Angeles Rams Betting Analysis

Straight Up - SU, Against the Spread - ATS, Over-Under (O/U)

  • SU: 7-4
  • ATS: 4-7
  • O/U: 6-4-1
  • ATS - Home: 2-3
  • ATS - Away: 2-4

When a team makes an offseason acquisition for a starting signal-caller, it typically takes a few weeks for their offense to settle into a rhythm – but that couldn’t be further from the truth for Stafford and the Rams to start the year, as L. A. opened with wins in seven of their first eight games, which included tough victories over the Bucs’, Seahawks, and Colts.

The Rams haven’t looked great since starting 7-1 though, considering L. A. enters Week 13 riding a three-game losing streak – despite being favored in all three of those affairs.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Los Angeles Rams Betting Conclusion

After posting a third straight loss in Green Bay last week, the Rams enter this Sunday’s contest favored by roughly two touchdowns over the visiting Jaguars – marking the third time Jacksonville has been a double-digit underdog this year.

I’ll lay the points with L. A. here, as despite their three-game losing streak, the Rams still rank 8th in the league in scoring and 7th in total offense (27.2 PPG, 384.1 YPG) – which should be more than enough to top Jacksonville this Sunday.
