Jaguars Bills Betting – Winless Bills Battle Upstart Jaguars At Orchard Park
Despite their AFC South-worst minus-40 points differential, the Jacksonville Jaguars are tied with the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts for second spot in the division, one game back of the Houston Texans. Jacksonville rebounded from consecutive blowout losses to the San Diego Chargers and Philadelphia Eagles to knock off the Colts at home last week, and will have the chance to pull above .500 against the only team in the AFC with a point differential that is worse than their own.

Online Sports Betting: Jaguars
The Buffalo Bills have opened the season with four straight losses, including two by 24 points or more. A close defeat at the hands of the New England Patriots at Foxborough seemed promising, but that optimism didn’t last long with the Bills suffering their second-biggest loss of the season last weekend against the New York Jets, 38-14. With one week to go before their bye, Buffalo will look to get in the win column.
Why To Bet On The Jaguars?
The Jaguars have a tough schedule coming up, with three of their next four on the road, and their only home game coming against the Titans next week. That said, there is a sense of urgency in the Jaguars’ locker room, and it will be on quarterback David Garrard and company to deliver, beginning with a winnable game this weekend. The 32-year old rebounded from consecutive losses over which he threw for five interceptions compared to just one touchdown, to complete over 77-percent of his passes for two touchdowns with no turnovers in the win over the Colts. If Garrard is on the money, the Jacksonville offense will thrive with running back Maurice Jones-Drew leading the way.
Why To Bet On The Bills?
The Bills kept their home opener against the Miami Dolphins close, losing 15-10, and showed signs in that game of being able to compete based on a solid defense. In the past couple of weeks however, Buffalo’s offense has hung them to dry, unable to sustain the types of quality drives that allow the defense to get a rest. The dismissal of Trent Edwards seemed like it was meant to be a confidence boost to newly anointed starter Ryan Fitzpatrick, but that didn’t appear to be the case in a loss to the Jets in which he barely hit the 100-yard passing mark. Buffalo has consecutive road games at the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs, before heading home to play the Chicago Bears, and if they can’t manage a win here, they may go winless until at least mid-November when they play the visiting football betting Detroit Lions.
How The Game Will Play Out
The Bills continue to build toward the future, but for the present, this team will have a hard time beating anyone. The Jaguars are a calm and confident group, and appear poised to earn their first road win of the season.
