Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans Predictions

The Tennessee Titans are coming off a much-needed bye after losing two straight games. The Titans have been without key members of the offense including Derrick Henry (RB), Julio Jones (WR), and A.J. Brown (WR). While Henry and Brown will still remain out, Julio Jones is likely to return to the lineup this week.

The Jaguars have lost four straight games, most recently getting blown out by the L.A Rams, 37-7. The offense has scored just 48 points and Trevor Lawrence (QB) has thrown one touchdown pass during the four-game drought. With just five games remaining on the schedule, this looks like a team ready to wave the white flag.

Titans head coach Mike Vrabel is 3-0 SU and ATS coming off a bye week. With just a two-game lead over Indianapolis in the AFC South, the Titans will look to increase that lead as the Colts are on a bye this week. The last meeting between these two teams was in week five, a game in which the Titans dominated, 37-19.

Jacksonville Jaguars Betting Analysis

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

  • SU: 2-10
  • ATS: 4-8
  • O/U: 2-10
  • ATS - Away: 2-3

The Jaguars are 4-8 ATS this season and just 5-11 in their last 16. Against the Titans, the Jaguars are 2-7 ATS in the last nine meetings. Jacksonville has hit the over only two times on the season, however, the over has hit in 8 of the last 12 games when playing Tennessee. The total in this one opened at 44 but has since dropped to 43.5.

Jacksonville’s offense has struggled all year, averaging 15 PPG (31st). Lawrence has thrown nine TD’s and 10 interceptions on the season. They rank 25th in total YPG (312.3), 26th in passing yards (201.8), 17th in rushing YPG (110.6), and second to last in turnovers, giving the ball up 21 times (10 INT, 11 FUM). They could see a bit more success through the air as Tennessee is allowing 256.3 passing YPG (26th).

The Jaguar's defense has not looked much better than the offense. Allowing opponents 365.1 total YPG (22nd), 248.3 passing YPG (19th), 116.8 rushing YPG (21st), and 26.7 PPG (29th). The defense could see a bit more success against a beat-up Titans team.

Tennessee Titans Betting Analysis

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

  • SU: 8-4
  • ATS: 7-5
  • O/U: 7-5
  • ATS - Home:
  • 3-3

The Titans are 0-3 ATS in their past three games and just 1-2 SU. Chalk it up to injuries, Tennessee has been struggling as of late. There is a sliver of good news for the Titans, they are coming off a bye week and wide receiver Julio Jones could see action again on Sunday. While Jones is not the answer to all of their problems, the Titans will be more than happy to have him back.

Tennesse’s offense has been in shambles without Henry, Jones, and Brown in the lineup. In the four games Henry has been out, Ryan Tannehill has thrown four touchdowns and six interceptions. On the season, Tennessee ranks 5th in rushing YPG (140.8), 23rd in passing YPG (213.4), 16th in total YPG (354.2), and 12th in PPG (25.3). Tannehill’s performance will be the key in this one, he simply has to be better.

The Titans Defense ranks middle of the pack in comparison to the rest of the NFL. They rank 26th in passing YPG (256.3), 6th in rushing yards (97.8), and 2nd in points allowed (24.2). The Titans will need to clean up the passing defense as that is what Jacksonville likes to do. Look for them to put pressure on Lawrence to try and force mistakes. They come into this matchup with 29 sacks on the season (12th).<.p>
