OUR Thursday night NFL man Louis Ross (@KingLouis2105) is back with another pick to share.
Tennessee Titans @ Jacksonville Jaguars | Friday 01:25 | Sky Sports 1
The 2-12 Titans are at the 2-12 Jags this Thursday. It’s safe to say that these two have struggled in every aspect of the game this season. Tennessee are actually down to their third string QB, the journeyman Charlie Whitehurst, after losing their once great hope Jake Locker for the season.
The Jags at least have some stability with rookie Blake Bortles showing some real potential. He has a huge arm and his accuracy is at least improving. The fact that the Jags occasionally get their running game going through Toby Gerhart, affords him some protection behind a fairly weak Offensive Line.
There was a lot to like about the Jags effort at Baltimore last week in a 20-12 loss against one of the form teams in the NFL. Not least in the form of their kicker Josh Scobee who made four of five attempts, the longest from 53 yards. Or the fact they restricted Justin Forsett to just 48 Rushing Yards. Better teams have struggled with Forsett for some time now.
Don’t expect a high scoring game here, but it will still be competitive, when you get to Week 16 there are contracts to play for and reputations to protect. Despite the potential draft implications of finishing last (number 1 pick next year), NFL teams simply don’t give up.
I really like the Jags in this game. The -3.5 available at 10/11 with Coral is really attractive and is my pick here.
This will be a really tough game for both sides but the Jacksonville Jaguars will come out on top. Tennessee have the weak link Charlie Whitehurst and that’s almost reason enough in itself to be supremely confident.
Tennessee Titans @ Jacksonville Jaguars – Jacksonville -3.5 (10/11 Coral)
