Jaguars Titans Betting – Jags Take Advantage Of Out-Of-Control Titans

Tennessee’s sports betting odds are going to take a big hit if they continue their current path of destruction as quarterbacks are dropping like flies, players are instigating (and losing) fights on the field, and they don’t know who will be in town next year, their franchise quarterback or their longtime coach. These are all things the Jacksonville Jaguars like to hear as they head to the Tennessee Titans this weekend, and they should be able to run over a distracted Titans squad.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Sunday, December 5th, 1:00 PM ET
  • Where: LP Field, Nashville, TN
  • Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars

What’s On The Line

The Jaguars (6-5) had a three-game winning streak ended in a 24-20 loss on the road against the New York Giants, but they’re still atop the AFC South. The Titans (5-6) were beaten all over the field, literally and figuratively, in a 20-0 shutout loss against the Houston Texans, but they’re still only a game out. Despite the mess that has been the Tennessee Titans this season, they’re still in the hunt, along with this surprising Jacksonville team that many had counted out prior to Halloween. This is a massive game in the AFC South.

Offensive Matchups: Jaguars Titans Betting

Jacksonville is getting back to what they do best, and that is run the ball with Maurice Jones-Drew, who had 113 yards to give him his fourth straight 100-yard game. David Garrard had a poor game, passing for just 162 yards and a pick, but we’re willing to give him the benefit of the doubt as he was sacked four times and hurried many more times by a fierce New York pass rush. The Jaguars have always had better games when Jones-Drew is doing his thing, and he’s been aided by an improved passing game over the last few weeks. Now, Garrard has to prove he can bounce back from a bad game.

The Titans couldn’t run the ball, picking up 24 yards on 12 carries, while Rusty Smith was picked off three times in his first NFL start. With Kerry Collins hurt, and the Vince Young saga hanging over the team, Tennessee was always going to have offensive problems coming into this game. You even forget that Randy Moss is on the team, but with no quarterback to get him the ball, what is the point? Chris Johnson should get used to more eight-man fronts until Collins gets back, or even the acquired Chris Simms.

Betting Edge: Jaguars

Defensive Matchups: Jaguars Titans Betting

Jacksonville comes in 25th in the league defensively, and a major reason is an inability to get to the quarterback as the Jaguars have just 20 sacks this season, and they had none on Sunday. That leaves a suspect secondary in coverage for far too long, and that’s why they’re 28th in the league against the pass. Eli Manning was able to do what he wanted against the Jaguars, even without two of his top three receivers, and Jacksonville may even make Smith look good this week.

Tennessee’s defense was on the field a long time against the Texans (almost 40 minutes in total), which means there was a lot of time for cornerback Cortland Finnegan to get frustrated. After Andre Johnson caught nine passes for 56 yards and a score on him, Finnegan pushed the envelope with the receiver and caught three good punches to the face and head. Finnegan avoided suspension for the incident, and it overshadowed a poor performance from a Tennessee rush defense that allowed 188 yards. Jones-Drew could light them up.

Betting Edge: Draw

Notable Injuries: Jaguars Titans Betting

Receiver Mike Sims-Walker (ankle) played against the Giants, but he looked slowed by a prior injury and will have to be watched, much like Garrard (wrist).

Receiver Kenny Britt (hamstring) may be able to come back this week, while there is no word on Collins (calf) yet. Defensive linemen Sen’Derrick Marks (ankle) and Tony Brown (knee) are hurting, as well as tight end Bo Scaife (stinger) for the Titans.

Betting Edge: Jaguars

Outlook and Pick: Jaguars Titans Betting

The quarterback situation in Tennessee is a reason while the NFL betting line for this game isn’t out yet, but even if the Titans are favored at home, it won’t be by much no matter who is under center. Jacksonville is 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five trips to Tennessee, but they’ll come away with the win in this one as the Titans are in disarray on and off the field, and coach Jeff Fisher may be just trying to keep them from imploding. They’re not going to be able to stop the run, which will open up the passing game for Garrard. This is also a good game for the Jacksonville defense to get some confidence. Take the Jaguars in your online betting book.

Stan’s Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars
