How To Bet On Jaguars Titans – Jags and Titans Go Through Final Motions of the Season
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Tennessee Titans – Sunday December 30, 2012 1:00PM EST
The last place that the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans want to be on Sunday December 30 is in an NFL stadium playing a game, especially against each other. The NFL betting world was extremely curious to see what the Tennessee Titans would accomplish this season, and the verdict was that they accomplished very little. This was supposed to be the season where quarterback Jake Locker established himself as the future of the Tennessee franchise. Not only did Locker fail to establish himself, head coach Mike Munchak repeatedly went to veteran Matt Hasselbeck at a point when the team was still in contention for a playoff spot. The only thing the team established is that Chris Johnson can run the football. That was no secret going into the season.
The betting sites tried to warn the Jacksonville Jaguars that Blaine Gabbert does not show any signs of being an NFL starting quarterback, but that is the route the Jags pursued when the season started. When star running back Maurice Jones-Drew was injured for the season, it did not take long for Gabbert to lose the starting job to veteran Chad Henne. Now there are strong rumors that Tim Tebow is headed to Jacksonville next season. Fans are wondering how much better 2013 will be with another mediocre quarterback under center.
Why the Titans Will Win
The online sportsbook experts give the edge in this game to the Titans for two reasons; the game is in Tennessee and Chris Johnson. Despite how horrible the Tennessee defense may be, it will still be enough to slow down Henne and the Jags’ offense. All Johnson has to do is run the ball and the game should be in the bag for Tennessee. The Titans are not expecting much of a fight from the Jaguars anyways.
Why the Jaguars Will Win
The shame of it all in Jacksonville is that the team now has a decent starting quarterback in Chad Henne. Henne has experience as a starter and is doing his best to make the most of a bad offense in Jacksonville. But The Jags are just not seeing the real problems and the team is insisting that it needs a new quarterback. Tim Tebow was not the answer in New York and he will not be the answer in Jacksonville. If the Jags was smart, it would keep Henne as the starter and build a team around him. But, then again, if Jacksonville was smart then the team would not be 2-13 heading into the final game of the season.
The Bottom Line
The Jags will roll over in this game and not put up much of a fight. Tennessee is still adrift in the NFL waters and has very little clue as to what it wants to do for next season, but at least it will end 2012 with a win.
Pick: Tennessee Titans
