So Jacksonville won’t go 0-16 after all – but oddsmakers still aren’t convinced that the Jaguars can be competitive this Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. The Jaguars pulled off a 27-20 outright victory over the visiting Los Angeles Chargers as seven-point underdogs in Week 1, but they’re facing an even larger deficit against a Titans team that squandered several scoring chances before finally pulling out a 16-14 triumph over the Denver Broncos.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Titans return home fresh off a 16-14 win over the Broncos, and oddsmakers have them on the periphery of being double-digit faves against the Jaguars. And recency bias is strong here, with more than three-quarters of Sports Interaction respondents taking Jacksonville and the points. But the Jaguars have gone just 3-6 ATS in their last nine games dating back to the middle of the 2019 season, while the Titans have won six straight home games vs. the Jaguars.

The total for this game is locked in at 42, with the Over at -114 and the Under at -106. Nearly 60 percent of Sports Interaction participants like the O42, and the recent trends support that play. The Titans have gone above the number in 10 of their previous 14 games, while Jacksonville is 5-1 O/U in its past six against AFC opponents. And the teams have trended toward the Over, as well, having converted the Over in six of their last nine head-to-head meetings.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The final score certainly flattered the Jaguars, who generated 27 points against the Chargers despite producing just 241 yards compared to Los Angeles’ 445. A big part of the reason why Jacksonville won outright as a one-touchdown underdog: the play of mustachioed quarterback Gardner Minshew, who completed 19 of his 20 pass attempts for 173 yards and three TDs. Minshew went 20-for-30 for 204 yards and two scores vs. the Titans as a rookie.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans are giving kicker Stephen Gostkowski another chance after he missed three field goals and an extra point in Week 1. He did salvage his night with the game-winning FG, but further struggles could result in Tennessee bringing in another kicker. Fortunately the Titans might not need him to extend their winning ways against Jacksonville; three of their past four home games vs. the Jaguars have produced wins of 14+ points.
