Jaguars vs Titans 2019 NFL Week 12 Lines & Betting Pick

Written by on November 20, 2019

Heading into Week 12 of the season, the race for playoff spots in both conferences is still very much alive and well. There are a couple of teams who seem assured of a spot, even with a few weeks still to go, but there are other races that are going to go all the way down to the wire. The ones that are the most fun to watch are the divisional races that are still too tight to call. The NFC East is one of those, with the eventual winner the only team likely to be guaranteed a playoff spot.

It is much the same story in the AFC South, where any of the 4 teams in there could still potentially win this division. It has been dog eat dog in there all season, and with all 4 teams squaring off against one another this weekend, things might get tight. The Colts and the Texans will be locking horns, but we are going to focus on the Jacksonville Jaguars trip to Tennessee in Week 12. The bookies see this as a close one, installing the Tennessee Titans as a 3-point home favorite. The point total is set at 41 ½.

Why bet on the Jacksonville Jaguars?

While the Gardner Minshew show in Jacksonville has been a fun one to watch, everyone was well aware that he was only going to be a placeholder until Nick Foles returned to health, which he did last week. The return of Foles came last week, but it was in a losing cause, with the Jaguars gong down 33-13 in a pivotal loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

The Jaguars are now 4-6 and sitting at the bottom of the AFC South, and while they are still mathematically alive, a loss this weekend would almost certainly kill their playoff chances. The Jaguars have not travelled well in recent years, going 3-9 SU in their last 12 road games. They are winless in their last 5 visits to Tennessee and are 1-4 SU and ATS in their last 5 games versus the Titans overall.

Why bet on the Tennessee Titans?

When the Titans traded to land the services of Ryan Tannehill in the offseason, it became obvious that we were likely going to see a QB controversy emerge at some point in the season. That came a few weeks ago, when starter Marcus Mariota was benched in favor of the former Dolphins QB. While Tannehill has not been spectacular, you cannot argue with the results, with the Titans winning 4 of their last 4 games.

The Titans have now moved up to 5-5 SU on the season, which has them right back in the battle for the AFC South Division. The Titans are 3-2 at home this season, but it is their performance as a favorite that stands out here, as they have gone 13-5 SU in their last 18 games with the favorite tag.

Jaguars vs Titans Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The Jaguars defense has been susceptible to the run over the last couple of weeks, so look for the Titans to come out early and set the tone by running the football. That should open up their passing game, leading them to a win and an easy cover.
