Why bet on Buffalo versus Jacksonville?

The Bills rank first in points per game, 32.7, and first in points allowed each contest, 15.6. Not only that, but quarterback Josh Allen is impossible to stop. If Allen doesn’t have it throwing the ball, he’ll resort to rushing it, but that rarely happens because Allen has a ton of weapons. The Jaguars defense should have a tough time keeping the Bills from scoring at least 35.

Why bet on Jacksonville versus Buffalo?

Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars have only a small chance of winning the game. But because the Jags can score, and because they’re playing at home, Jacksonville has a decent shot to cover the spread. Lawrence doesn’t often throw two bad games in a row. He was horrible versus Seattle in NFL Week 8, which means he could bounce back with a good enough performance to keep this within the 14 ½ points.

Buffalo Bills at Jacksonville Jaguars Final Betting Prediction

If we try hard, we can make a case for the Jags to keep this close. After all, Buffalo has had trouble in a couple of games this season. One of them was on the road versus the Titans, a team with a good offense.

But the Jaguars don’t really have a good offense. At times, Lawrence has shown the skills that made him the top pick in last April’s draft. But the rookie is too inconsistent to back versus the best defense in the NFL.

Josh Allen is unstoppable. Jacksonville allow 29 points per game on average. The Bills should score between 42 and 56. Unless Lawrence plays the best game of his early career, and even if he does, the Bills will cover the spread.
