The Jacksonville Jaguars achieved a milestone in Week 13 but it’s not one they should take pride in. For the tenth time in the last 11 years, they’ve lost 10 games or more in a season. It takes a high level of dysfunction to achieve this level of bad. Sure, there’s new leadership in place and they could end up turning things around but the early returns of the most recent rebuilding effort haven’t paid off.
You can’t blame Urban Meyer and Trent Baalke for the other nine times but they need to take the necessary steps to right the ship. They can start by not getting blown out the way they did in Week 13. In case you missed it, Jacksonville lost 37-7 to a Rams team that was coming off a three-game losing streak. It would be one thing if the game had been competitive but the Jaguars looked outmatched, and toothless.
It’s unlikely that Meyer takes joy in losing but something isn’t right and he has five weeks to figure it out. If the Jaguars don’t show signs of improvement in that snaps, questions about his job security will become louder. Beating (or at least keeping up with) the Tennessee Titans in Week 14 would help his case. Here are the odds and a final prediction for the game.
Jaguars vs. Titans Week 14 odds.
The Jaguars are a 10-point underdog with a moneyline of +360 in Week 14, according to WynnBET. Bet $100 on them and if they beat Tennessee, you will win $360 for a total payout of $460. Meanwhile, the Titans have a moneyline of -450. To win $100, you have to place a wager of $450 on them. The under/over for the game is set at 44 points.
Jaguars vs. Titans Week 14 final score prediction.
The Titans have been struck by injuries this year and have lost two games in a row after winning six straight. Nevertheless, they have a one-game lead over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC South. Even if they don’t win the division, they could sneak into the playoffs as a wild card while the Jaguars have struggled on both sides of the ball in their last four losses.
The Titans had their BYE in Week 13, which gave them the chance to get a bit healthier. Also, having more time to prepare for the Jags and the fact that the game will be in Tennessee should give them an advantage.
The Jaguars could pull off the upset but at this point, it’s difficult to favor them in Week 13. That’s why the Titans are the B&T’s pick this week.
Final score: Titans 24 – Jaguars 14
