The Jacksonville Jaguars are heading north to the Motor City to take on the Detroit Lion in and inter-conference matchup.
These two teams have been heading in opposite directions the last few weeks, and both need a win here.
The Jaguars have lost four straight games including a close 24-21 loss to divison foe Houston Texans last week.
They are currently in last place in the AFC South. On the other hand, the Lions have won four of their last five games after a very slow start.
Last week, they defeated the Minnesota Vikings 22-16 in overtime to take over 1st place in the NFC North.
It’s tough to find much good to say about the Jacksonville Jaguars this season.
They have only won two games so far and have lost four in a row.
Expectations were high for the Jags coming into the year, and many people believed they could compete in the AFC South. Now it appears to be another typical Jags season, and another reboot may be coming.
Although they rank 19th in total offense this year with 343.3 yards per game, they have been unable to convert yards into points and are 27th in scoring offense (19.3 points per game).
Quarterback Blake Bortles has thrown for 2,421 yards and 16 touchdowns but also has 11 interceptions, and much of his positive stats have come in garbage time.
The defense has been one bright spot, ranking 8th in total defense, allowing only 327.7 yards per game.
However, they are 26th in scoring D, allowing 26.6 points per game.
The Lions seemed as though they were bound for a last place finish in the division to start 2016.
They lost their first three games, but have seriously turned things around since then.
They have won four of their last five, including a very important win last week. It took overtime to decide it, but the Lions beat the Vikings last week and now hold sole possession of 1st place in the division at 5-4.
Detroit has been the opposite of the Jaguars statistically.
They don’t gain a lot of yards (337.8 per game, ranking 23rd), but they have been efficient and score points (22.8 points per game, ranking 17th).
The defense has been a similar story, allowing 336.3 yards per game (23rd in the NFL) but only 22.9 points (14th in the NFL).
NFL Betting Trends:
- Jaguars are 2-4-1 ATS in last 7 road games
- Jaguars are 2-10 SU in last 12 games
- Lions are 4-1 ATS in last 5 games
- Lions are 4-1 ATS in last 5 home games
4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Detroit -6.5
There is simply no reason to believe the Jaguars can win this game. They show flashes at times, but cannot consistently score points.
They have a good enough defense to be competitive but probably can’t keep the score within a touchdown.
NFL Free Score Prediction: Jacksonville 20 – Detroit 27
