The Oakland Raiders (4-2 SU) and Jacksonville Jaguars (2-3 SU) have spent their fair share of time in the cellar of their respective divisions, but the 2016 NFL season was seen as a year for both franchises to take positive steps toward contending. The squads are set to collide in Week 7 in the Sunshine State.
Jacksonville doesn’t have a great track record against most teams but has had Oakland’s number when it comes to covering the spread in recent meetings. The Jags are a very profitable 5-1 ATS in their past six matchups with the Raiders.
The OVER has also been a hot bet when these clubs take the gridiron. OVER bettors have cashed tickets in three of the last four games between the Jaguars and Raiders.
Oddsmakers opened Jacksonville as slight 1.5-point home chalk with an OVER/UNDER of 48.5.
Stringing together covers at EverBank Field has been a tall order for Jacksonville lately. The Jags are a brutal 0-11 SU and 1-10 ATS in their last 11 home tilts after covering in their most recent home affair.
Are the Jags starting to turn things around? After dropping three in a row to start the season, Blake Bortles and company toppled the Indianapolis Colts in London before erasing a 16-0 deficit to surprise the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field. They’re a hard team to trust due to inconsistency concerns, but there are worse options out there.
