Jaguars are Awful on the Road

The Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t quite out of the playoff hunt yet as they head to New Orleans for a Week 16 matchup vs the Saints. The Jags have only won one game on the road this season, but have gone 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games after an ATS loss.

Shark Bites
  • The Jaguars are 0-4 SU and ATS in their last four games against the NFC South division.
  • The Saints are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games at home in December.
  • The favored team is 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in its last five games in this matchup.

It’s been a season to forget for the 5-9 SU Saints who are a middling 3-3-1 ATS at home this season. They’ve lost five out of their last six games and have given up 31 or more points on seven occasions this season.

Jags fans who are clinging to playoff hopes might be out of luck in this one as Jacksonville has won just one time in their last 15 games as road underdogs. In their five road losses this season the Jags have allowed an average of 35 points.

Jacksonville was likely hoping for a bit of a break when Drew Brees was announced as day-to-day with a torn plantar fascia, but the quarterback is expected to play.
