Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans Final Betting Prediction
The Titans head into this off a bye. Based on a strong trend, Tennessee should blow out the Jaguars on Sunday.
But after watching the Titans lose 13-22 to the already eliminated Houston Texans, and then folding in the second half against the Patriots in a 36-13 loss, it’s apparent that Tennessee isn’t nearly as good as the record indicates.
The Titans have a decent offense. The defense is a mess. Yes, the D allows less than 100 yards rushing per game, but that’s only because opponents average 256.3 passing yards per.
Trevor Lawrence hasn’t had a great rookie season. But there has been some bright moments like when he threw for over 300 yards against the Dolphins.
Lawrence’s state line in the first matchup, a 37-19 Titans’ victory, impresses. The Jaguars quarterback completed over 69% of his passes for 273 yards, a TD and a pick.
Henry rushed for 130 yards and scored 3 TDs in that game. He won’t be on the field this Sunday. Without Henry, the Titans will find it difficult to pull away. Jacksonville covers.
