Atlanta Falcons @ Jacksonville Jaguars – Thursday August 30, 2012 6:30PM EST

The NFL betting world usually expects to see all second and third-string players in the final preseason game of the year. But with the way things have been going in Atlanta, the fans may seen Matt Ryan and the first team offense on the field for a series or two to start this fourth and final preseason game. The Falcons are 1-2 this preseason, which should not be a major concern to anyone. But there is a lot of pressure on head coach Mike Smith to win this season, and the team does not look ready deliver on those expectations as the regular season approaches.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are still negotiating with star running back Maurice Jones-Drew in the hopes that he will be ending his holdout soon. But no one in the league is betting that Jones-Drew will be lining up for the Jaguars when the regular season opens. Considering how the Jaguars have played without Jones-Drew, the running back may not have the upper hand in the negotiations.

Why the Falcons Will Win

Mike Smith is not going to put so much emphasis on this game that he is going to risk his starters for too long. But if any team would run the risk of putting first-stringers on the field for last preseason game, it would be the Falcons. There is no sense of panic in Atlanta, but there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered. Defense is where most sports betting experts expect to see a lot of Atlanta starters in this game, and it could go on into the second quarter.

Why the Jaguars Will Win

The Jacksonville Jaguars finally seem content with Blaine Gabbert as its quarterback. Gabbert has thrown three touchdowns and no interceptions in this preseason. He has had time to work extensively with the first-team offense, and it shows in the results. But Gabbert will not be playing in this game. More than likely, Carson Palmer's brother Jordan will be starting this game and he has looked good in this preseason as well. The Jaguars will get a good look at its impressive corps of young running backs and feel pretty good about the upcoming season.

The Bottom Line

The final preseason game is always about depth. No one is really looking to win this game, but the strongest roster is always the team that walks away with the win. The Falcons have an effective starting lineup, but it lacks some depth on both sides of the ball. The Jaguars look ready for the season and seem to have more depth than the team has had in a while.

Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars
