NFL Week 18 Betting Odds and Preview for Tennessee Titans at Jacksonville
Tennessee Titans Betting Preview: Titans Look to Break Losing Streak and take home AFC South title
What happened to the Tennessee Titans? The team from the Music City is now on a six-game losing streak after a promising first half of the season in which they started 7-3. The Titans most recent home loss was a 27-13 defeat to the Dallas Cowboys. They have been hit hard by injuries and will be without their starting quarterback in this matchup, turning to Joshua Dobbs.
Expect the Titans to rely heavily on Derrick Henry, who sat out last week in preparation for their matchup against the Jags. After fighting with injuries, the running back is having a great comeback season and is a favorite to take home the Comeback Player of the Year Award. Henry has 319 carries for 1,429 yards in 15 games, which ranks third in the league and he ranks among the top three in this area with 13 rushing touchdowns.
The Titans will have to play out of this world to take home a victory. Not only have they lost six straight games but they have failed to cover the spread in each of those games.
Jacksonville Jaguars Betting Preview: Jaguars Hoping to Make the Playoffs for First time since 2017
Similar to Tennessee, Jacksonville is also experiencing a story of two halves during the NFL season. Despite having a 3-7 record to start the year, the Jaguars have won five of their last six games and are now 8-8 and in first place in their division and fighting for the AFC South Title.
The recent success of Jacksonville can be largely attributed to Doug Pederson’s excellent coaching and Trevor Lawrence’s rise to prominence at quarterback. Lawrence has made great progress this season after throwing a league-worst 17 interceptions as a rookie. Doug Pederson has done a tremendous job developing Lawrence, who increased his passing touchdown total from 12 to 24.
The Jaguars’ defense must still make some adjustments, though. Overall the Jaguars are 4-0 ATS over their last four games and have covered in five of their last six.

The Titans have struggled lately after appearing to be a postseason lock for the AFC South. The Jaguars, on the other hand, have all the momentum, especially after taking down playoff teams like the Ravens and the Cowboys.
All things considered, Tennessee will have their backs up against the wall as they travel to Jacksonville in addition to dealing with injuries on both sides of the ball. Doug Pederson has clearly done something right with this Jaguars team, and we believe he leads the Jaguars to victory and a cover.
