Why Bet On Jacksonville?

Despite the fact that Jacksonville (4-9) has lost five straight including their pitiful 45-10 blowout loss against the Chargers on Sunday, there are still a couple of reasons to back the Jags in Week 15. Jacksonville has the statistically better defense in allowing almost three fewer points per game than Las Vegas. Then, there’s the fact that the Raiders have lost twice at home in six contests, including the last time out. Last, but not least, Las Vegas has not scored more than 21 points in each of their last four games.

Why Bet On Las Vegas?

The Raiders might be struggling and their playoff hopes might be shot, but there are still some good reasons to back Las Vegas in this matchup. First, the Raiders have dropped three straight games including a humbling 42-21 blowout loss to red-hot Tennessee last weekend. Still, the Raiders are 3-3 over their last six games. Another good reason to believe Derek Carr and company can get it done in this one is the fact that Jacksonville is just 2-4 in six road games this season. The Raiders have won four of six at home this season and Las Vegas has the more potent offense in this matchup.

Jaguars vs Raiders Expert Analysis and Prediction

The Las Vegas Raiders might not be worthy of a playoff spot this season, but they are definitely the pick to win and cover a manageable six-point spread in Week 15. Jacksonville is completely out of sorts right now and they’ve been held to 13 points or less in four of their last five games while failing to score more than 20 points total. Las Vegas has gone 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up loss and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games. With Jacksonville going a winless 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall, I don’t see any way the Jags keep up with Las Vegas in this one.

Pick: Las Vegas 28 Jacksonville 20
