Jacksonville Looking For Rare Road Success Sunday

The Jacksonville Jaguars are 1-17 SU and 6-10-2 ATS over their last 18 games on the road. The Jaguars will try to break a four-game road losing streak against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday.

SHARK BITES
  • The Jaguars are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against the Bears.
  • The total has gone OVER in 14 of the Jaguars' last 20 games on the road after a loss on the road.
  • The Jaguars are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games after winning as an underdog.

Despite his team's lack of success in the win column on the road, quarterback Blake Bortles has actually performed better away from home over the course of his young career. Bortles has a quarterback rating of 85.0 with a 26-to-17 touchdown-to-interception ratio in 15 career road games compared with a 75.7 rating and a 27-25 ratio in 19 career home games.

Chicago could be a good place for the Jaguars to end their road futility given the Bears' struggles at home. The Bears are just 4-15 SU and 6-13 ATS in their last 19 games at home, winning just two of their last 13 games at Soldier Field. Chicago's home win over Detroit earlier this month broke an 0-4 SU and ATS home skid.

Brian Hoyer has been significantly better under center for the Bears than Jay Cutler this season. The former backup has thrown for two touchdowns and no interceptions in each of Chicago's last three games.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick
