Bet on the NFL In a battle of the AFC South, the Tennessee Titans host the Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend. The Jags are coming off a loss to the Giants over Thanksgiving weekend. They are currently at the top of their NFL betting division, the AFC South at 6-5-0. The Titans, who were recently shut out by the Texans at 17-0, round out the bottom of the AFC South with a 5-6-0 record. Pretty amazing that a single win makes the difference between the top and bottom of the AFC South.
The quarterback situation for both teams remains up in the air. David Garrard of the Jacksonville Jaguars left his game late after a hard hit and Rusty Smith may give way to a recovering Kerry Collins for the Tennessee Titans. The Las Vegas Hilton Superbook has taken the game off the board as of Monday but the line should fall right around one or two points when it goes back up.
Randy Moss appears done as a wide out to many but if Kerry Collins gets back in the line up Moss could be an instant Pro Bowl wide receiver again. Chris Johnson is still the key to this offense and if the Tennessee Titans can get him running downhill against the Jacksonville Jaguars defense this game could be an easy win for the struggling Tennessee Titans.
The Jacksonville Jaguars defense is only giving up 112 yards per game to their opponents running backs.
They must contain the Tennessee Titans Chris Johnson if they are to have any chance in this game. Defending the pass is the Jacksonville Jaguars defensive Achilles heel. They are surrendering over 260 yards per game to opposing quarterbacks and if Kerry Collins is healthy look for a big passing day from the old quarterback. Tennessee Titans offense has the edge over the Jacksonville Jaguars defense.
The Tennessee Titans defense was on a roll early in the year and they were ranked as high as third. The Tennessee Titans have been vulnerable against the pass despite a strong pass rush on the front defensive line. Tennessee is giving up over 258 yards per game on average through the air and they will be tested on their run defense by Maurice Jones-Drew.
