Bet on the NFLNFL betting lines handicappers will have their choice of two wounded animals that are playing for their NFL betting lives as Jacksonville hosts Tennessee. NFL betting lines players have been burned badly so far by the Titans while the Jaguars have been a deceptively good NFL betting value and are in the black so far.
The Tennessee Titans opened as 1.5-point favorites on the NFL betting lines for this one with a NFL betting total of 41. After a tough week 1 overtime NFL football betting loss at Pittsburgh in which they covered the spread the Tennessee Titans have lost the 2 games that followed to fall to 0-3 straight up and 1-2 against the spread. Last week the Titans lost at the New York Jets 17-24 as 1-point road dogs against the NFL betting lines.
The Titans offense has been inconsistent and ranks 19th overall in scoring against the NFL betting lines while the defense has suffered a significant drop and ranks 23rd in points allowed. Quarterback Kerry Collins has not been sharp so far against the NFL betting lines with a quarterback rating of 69.9 and a 4/4 touchdown to interception ratio. The Titans have gone over the total in 2 out of 3 games.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are 1-2 straight up but 2-1 against the NFL betting lines Last week the Jaguars got a desperately needed win at Houston 31-24 as 4-point road dogs. Jacksonville has also had quarterbacking problems so far as David Garrard has been the epitome of average with a quarterback rating of 75.4 with 2 touchdowns and 1 interception. Jacksonville might be just when Collins needs to jump start his season as the Jaguars rank dead last against the NFL betting lines for pass defense. The Jags have gone over the total 2 out of 3 times this year.
The Titans have beaten the NFL betting lines in 4 out of their last 5 meetings with the Jaguars and have gotten the cash in 5 out of their last 7 trips to Jacksonville. The two teams have gone under the total in 9 out of their last 13 meetings at Jacksonville.
