The Patriots get a good draw in the penultimate game of the 2021 regular season, meeting up with Jacksonville who has no intention of winning right now. New England gets what looks like an easy win prior to their week 18 battle on the road against a red hot Dolphins team.
Jacksonville has no reason to win right now, as they are in the driver’s seat for a second straight #1 draft pick. The Jaguars won’t need a QB this draft, but having their pick of talent out of the college ranks is incentive for potential head coaching candidates.
Jacksonville accomplished two goals last week, played competitively but still picked up the loss in a 26-21 defeat at the Jets. This has kept the Jaguars in line for the #1 pick with their 2-13 record but also gives the team a slight bit of momentum heading into the offseason.
It’s hard to know what Jacksonville will want to do with that potential #1 pick considering they took Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence in the top spot last season, but they could take the best player available to bolster their defense, get O-line help, or also field trade offers.
It’s way too early to call Lawrence an NFL bust, but he’s also been far from impressive. The #1 pick was 26/39 for 280 yards vs. the Jets last week, arguably outplayed for the 2nd straight week by a fellow rookie as New York QB Zach Wilson had a passing TD as well as a 52 yard scoring run. 3rd round pick Davis Mills led Houston to a 30-16 win over Jacksonville the week prior.
New England Patriots
This is always the type of game where a team like the Patriots would be in danger of looking past as the Jaguars are not on their same level. Bill Belichick won’t let that happen though, especially with New England in a sudden two game losing streak after winning seven in a row.
Last week’s defeat was a big one, with the AFC East slipping out of the Patriots’ hands in a 33-21 home loss to Buffalo. This has the Bills and New England tied at 9-6 with Miami still in the discussion at 8-7.
Josh Allen was 30/47 for 314 yards and 3 TD last week vs. New England, but Lawrence is not quite at that league at the QB position for Jacksonville. The real concern is New England QB Mac Jones, who was 14/32 for 145 yards with 0 TD and 2 INT vs. Buffalo and could be hitting a rookie wall.
NFL Betting Trends:
- Jaguars are 1-4 ATS last 5 road games
- Jaguars are 0-6 ATS last 6 overall
- UNDER is 5-1 in Jaguars last 6 road games
- Patriots are 5-1 ATS last 6 as a favorite
- Patriots are 27-10 ATS last 37 vs. team with winning record
- Patriots are 5-2 ATS last 7 vs. AFC
- OVER is 5-0 in Patriots last 5 home games
4* Free Week 17 NFL Betting Prediction: Patriots -15.5
It’s pretty much a gone conclusion that New England gets the win and Lawrence loses his third straight game to a fellow rookie QB. Can the Patriots cover the -15.5 number is the bigger question.
New England has beaten the Titans by 23, the Browns by 38, and the Jets by 41 in three of their last four home games. Blowout wins are not a problem for this squad in Foxborough.
Jacksonville is likely in trouble here.
