AFC South-Leading Jaguars Play Host to High-Powered Rams

Two of this season’s surprise stories clash on Sunday afternoon, when the Los Angeles Rams travel to EverBank Field for an NFL Week 6 matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 3-2 Rams hope to rebound from a heartbreaking 16-10 loss at Seattle as 2.5-point chalk, while the Jaguars return home following their shocking 30-9 rout of Pittsburgh as 7.5-point underdogs.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in the Rams’ last three games against the Jaguars.
  • The Jaguars are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games.
  • The Rams are 10-32 SU in their last 42 games on the East Coast.

After tallying 35 or more points in three of their previous four outings, the Rams traveled to Seattle last weekend as the NFL’s highest-scoring team. However, Los Angeles’ point production has not produced consistency at the sportsbooks, where it is 2-3 ATS this season, and 3-13-1 ATS over the past 17. The Rams are also undefeated SU in two road games this season, but have not won three straight on the road since 2012.

The 3-2 Jaguars claimed sole possession of first place in the AFC South with last week’s win over the Steelers, but have been dismal performers on home turf, going 2-8 SU over their past 10, and scoring 17 or fewer points in six of those contests. Jacksonville has also lost outright in three straight as home chalk, and is a meagre 4-7 SU and ATS over its past 11.

This marks just the fourth meeting between these two clubs since 1996. The Rams have taken three of four SU from Jacksonville, and have covered in all four matchups. However, the Jaguars claimed victory in their lone home date against the Rams during that stretch, a 23-20 win as 9.5-point chalk in 2009.
