Jacksonville Jaguars Vs Tennessee Titans Live Stream Online
The Jacksonville Jaguars are an American professional football franchise based in Jacksonville, Florida. The Jaguars compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the American Football Conference (AFC) South division. The team plays its home games at EverBank Field.
The Jaguars and the Carolina Panthers joined the NFL as expansion teams for the 1995 season. Since their inception, the Jaguars have won division championships in 1998 and 1999 (as members of the defunct AFC Central) and have qualified for the playoffs seven times, most recently in 2017 after a ten-season playoff drought.
The Tennessee Titans are a professional American football team based in Nashville, Tennessee. The Titans compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the American Football Conference (AFC) South division. Previously known as the Houston Oilers, the team began play in 1960 in Houston, Texas, as a charter member of the American Football League (AFL). The Oilers won the first two AFL Championships, and joined the NFL as part of the AFL–NFL merger in 1970.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Tennessee Titans odds: Picks from expert who’s 8-2 on Jags games
The NFL regular season concludes Sunday with several games that will determine the final spots in the playoffs, including the Jaguars’ AFC South battle with the Titans. After opening as five-point favorites, the Titans are now favored by 3.5. The over-under, or total number of points Vegas thinks will be scored, is 42, up a point after opening at 41.
With so much on the line and the odds swinging back and forth, you need to see what SportsLine’s Mike Tierney has to say.
In Week 14, Tierney told readers to jump all over the Jaguars as 2.5-point favorites against the Seahawks. The result: Jags 30, Seahawks 24, another cash for Tierney on a game involving Jacksonville.
Amazingly, that helped Tierney to a scorching 8-2 run on those games. Anyone who has followed his picks is way, way up.
Part of his success: Tierney is a seasoned veteran when it comes to covering the NFL. A national sportswriter whose work appears in the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, he has reported from seven Super Bowls. And he knows how to pick a game like this with a lot of uncertainty.
Tierney knows the Jaguars are already locked in as the No. 3 seed in the AFC and can’t move up or down based on the results of this game. The Titans, meanwhile, are fighting for their postseason lives.
After dropping three straight games to NFC West teams, the Titans are now in a win-and-in situation in Week 17. A victory guarantees a wild-card spot, while a loss leaves them needing a lot of help to back their way in.
The Jaguars are also coming off a tough loss to San Francisco, a game in which they lost left tackle Cam Robinson, who will miss this game against the Titans.
But just because the Titans have more to play for doesn’t mean they’ll be able to win and cover the 3.5-point spread.
Tennessee also suffered a key injury last week, losing running back DeMarco Murray in the loss to the Rams. Murray has a partially torn MCL, but hasn’t been ruled out for this game. Even if he does play, it’s tough to envision him being his normal self, so this will be a blow to Tennessee either way.
Though the Titans played well at times earlier in the season, they haven’t looked anything like a playoff team in recent weeks. Two of their three straight losses came against teams not even close to the playoff hunt. And of their five previous wins, four of them came by one score. This isn’t a team that regularly wins big.
Jacksonville coach Doug Marrone has also said he plans to play his starters this week, meaning the Titans won’t get a free pass against backups.
Tierney has evaluated all of these circumstances and has locked in his pick.
He knows there’s an x-factor no one is thinking about that ultimately determines the point-spread winner for Jaguars-Titans. And he’s sharing it over at SportsLine.
