Why bet on Jacksonville versus Detroit?

There’s a reason the Jaguars have gone from a +1 dog to a pick underdog. Jacksonville’s defense has played great in the Jags’ last 3 contests.

On Nov. 6, the Jaguars held the Raiders to 20 points in a terrific 27-20 win. Although the Jaguars lost to the KC Chiefs in their next game, Jacksonville held Patrick Mahomes and his mates to 27 points. 

Also, the Jags pushed against the spread versus Kansas City. Then in their last game, Jacksonville upset Baltimore 28-27 straight up as a 3.5 points underdog.

Why bet on Detroit versus Jacksonville?

The Lions are a lucky play away from being 4-0 straight up and against the spread in their last four games. Detroit had Buffalo on the ropes, but bad decisions towards the end of the game cost the Lions a chance at tying the Bills 28-28 or winning straight up.

While Jacksonville’s defense is playing well, Detroit’s defense and offense are playing great. The Lions scored 25 against Buffalo, 31 in a road victory over the Giants, and 31 in a victory over the NFC North rival Chicago Bears.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Detroit Lions Final Betting Prediction

Jaguars versus Lions has to be one of this week’s most difficult games to handicap. Trends don’t matter much in this game because the Jags and Lions are so different then what they were earlier in the season.

Both franchises are playing their best football right now, which makes handicapping even more challenging. Detroit has the home field edge. But the Jaguars pulled off a win against Baltimore and competed with Kansas City.

Not only that, but Detroit could be without starting center Frank Ragnow, which would be a major issue because Jacksonville sacked Raiders QB Derek Carr twice, intercepted Mahomes, and got a sack against Lamar Jackson. 

Jacksonville’s defense is playing great. The offense caught up in the last game when Trevor Lawrence threw for 320 yards and 3 TDs. The Jags are the play.
