Betting expert expects low-scoring game between Falcons and Jaguars in London

BetSided NFL betting expert Iain MacMillan is worried about Jacksonville's offense, but not as much as Atlanta's run-first attack.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are headed over to their second home across the pond and they’re meeting the 2-1 Atlanta Falcons there. The Jaguars are 1-2 after a bad loss to the Texans, 37-17 in Week 3, and BetSided's NFL betting expert, Iain MacMillan, only expects them to fix their problems on one side of the ball. 

In his weekly “Road to 272 Bets” MacMillan picks every game of the NFL season and for this matchup between Desmond Ridder and the Falcons against Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars, he likes the under.

Falcons vs. Jaguars odds, spread and total

Betting expert for Jaguars in Week 4

When a team decides to run the ball a lot, that team is typically a good bet on the under. As BetSided NFL betting expert Iain MacMillan writes, that’s been the case with the Atlanta Falcons. 

“The Falcons are quietly becoming a great UNDER team. They run the ball and throw short passes on offense, then play solid defense and hope for the best. Heading into Week 4, they rank 26th in yards per play (4.5) but eighth in opponent yards per play (4.7).”

The Jaguars defense could be suited to stop this run-first attack. They are only allowing 3.4 yards per rush this year. However, the Jaguars and their struggling offense will help this under hit even more. 

“Both offenses have also been terrible in staying on the field. The Falcons rank 27th in third down conversion rate (30.77%) and the Jaguars rank 29th at 29.73%. That's great news for UNDER bettors.”

Bet the under on the London game.
