Week 14’s Thursday Night Football features a matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans at the Nissan Stadium.

The 6-6 Titans are very much alive in the playoff race while the 4-8 Jaguars may be just playing to finish the season strong after suffering a seven game losing streak.

Finally Over

The Jacksonville Jaguars’ seven game losing streak is finally over after the Jaguars defeated the Indianapolis Colts 6-0 in their last outing. Their defense, which led the NFL one year ago but which is underperforming this year, finally showed its form as they forced and interception on Andrew Luck while sacking him a total of three times with a loss of 24 yards.

Blake Bortles threw for 2,572 yards with 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions before being replaced by Cody Kessler. Kessler got his first win against the Colts and he has thrown for a total of 306 yards with one score and one interception while completing 72% of his passes. T.J. Yeldon has rushed for 401 yards on 100 carries with one touchdown. Yeldon also leads the team with 53 receptions for 472 yards and four touchdowns. Leonard Fournette has rushed for 314 yards with four touchdowns on the ground but has missed several weeks due to a hamstring injury.

Postseason Hopes Alive

The Tennessee Titans halted their two game skid with a 26-22 win over the New York Giants. Tennessee battled back from a 0-16 deficit to win the game and keep their postseason hopes alive. At 6-6, the Titans remain just one game behind the Baltimore Ravens for the final playoff spot in the AFC.

Marcus Mariota has completed 188 of 274 passes for a total of 2,168 passing yards with 11 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Mariota has also rushed for 326 yards and has scored two rushing touchdowns this season. Derrick Henry has a team high 128 carries for 474 rushing yards with five touchdowns scored. Corey Davis has caught a total of 744 yards with four receiving touchdowns.

Who Wins?

These teams have played each other a total of 47 times with the Titans having the edge in their head to head meeting at 27-20. Tennessee has also taken the last three matchup between these teams, including a 9-6 win on the road last September 23rd.

Jacksonville is 1-7 SU in their last 8 games played and 1-5 SU in their last 6 road games. Tennessee is 3-5 SU in their last 8 games played and are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home. Head to head, the Titans are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games against the Jaguars and are 6-1 SU in their last 7 home games played against Jacksonville.

The Jaguars finally snapped their seven game losing skid last week. But they did so because of their defense more than their offense. Cody Kessler and his offense managed only two field goals against the Colts. Scoring is going to be their problem against a Titans’ defense that ranks 6th in the league in scoring defense.

Betting Prediction

The Titans are also a tough bunch to beat at home. They are 4-1 SU at Nissan Stadium this season and have won 10 out of their last 12 games played there. On the other hand, the Jaguars have lost their last four games in Tennessee and are 2-12 in their last 14 road games against divisional opponents. We’re going with the home team here to win by a touchdown.

We’re picking the Tennessee Titans to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars on 12/6/18.

What’re the Odds?

Jacksonville Jaguars vs Tennessee Titans 12/6/18
Spread Odds: Jaguars +4 (-110), Titans -4 (-110)
Odds from betonline.ag as of 12.5.18


Betting Prediction

The Jaguars have not gotten it done in Nashville as they have gone 0-4 SU in their last four games against the Titans. Over that period, the Titans posted an average winning margin of 6.0 points over the Jaguars. Tennessee is a tough team to beat at home both SU and ATS. Tennessee has lost just twice SU in their last dozen games at Nissan Stadium and they are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games played there. I like the home team to win by at least a touchdown here.

Prediction: Titans -4

Place Your Bet Here

The total has gone under in 4 out of the last 6 games played by Jacksonville. The over is 3-2 in the Jaguars’ five road games played this season. The total has gone under in four out of the last 6 games played by Tennessee and the under is 3-2 in the Titans’ five home games this season. Head to head though, the total has gone over in four out of the last six games between these teams and the over is 5-2 in their last seven games played in Tennessee.

What’re the Odds?

Jacksonville Jaguars vs Tennessee Titans 12/6/18
Over/Under Odds: Over 37.5 -110, Under 37.5 -110
Odds from betonline.ag as of 12.5.18


Betting Prediction

Both teams have a combined scoring average of 35.34 points per game on the season and the under is a combined 14-10 in these two teams combined 24 games. The over has hit in four out of the last six meetings between these two teams but they combined to score just 15 in their last meeting and 25 in their game prior to that. The Jaguars scored 7 and 6 in Cody Kessler’s first two starts and while he isn’t prone to turnovers like Blake Bortles, he isn’t also the type of quarterback who’s going to light up the scoreboards.

Prediction: Under 37.5
