Betting Talk: Take the Jaguars and Blake Bortles Over Titans

RotoExperts Staff September 16, 2017 10:35AM EDT
This column appears courtesy of MyBookie.ag

We’re on to Week 2, and hopefully you started building that bankroll by taking the Texans (+6) on the road against the Bengals on Thursday night. There are plenty of intriguing battles with some interesting lines on Sunday’s slate. I expect plenty of dogs to bark in the second weekend of NFL action.

  1. Jaguars (+1 1/2) over Titans

The Jaguars looked awfully sharp in their road victory against the Texans last weekend, and they have looked very good against the Titans in recent seasons, too, at least against the number. Jacksonville has posted a 5-1-2 against the spread mark over the past eight meetings with Tennessee, including a 5-0-1 against the spread mark in the past six in this series at home. The home team is also 4-0-1 ATS in the past five meetings. The visiting team has dropped six in a row straight-up in this series, too.

Overall, the Titans haven’t been very good on the road, either, posting a 7-19-1 ATS mark over their past 27, while going 13-35-3 ATS in their last 51 games within the division.  Even worse, Tennessee is a dismal 1-16-1 ATS in their past 18 divisional road games. Last week, the Titans were down LeShaun Sims in their secondary, but he is expected to play Sunday. However, rookie Adoree’ Jackson, who struggled mightily in the preseason, is still expected to have a big role. That’s good news for Blake Bortles and the pass offense. He has three straight 300-yard games against the Titans.

  1. Browns (+8) over Ravens

The Browns hit the road for Baltimore in Week 2 looking to build upon their decent showing in the opener against the Steelers. Cleveland picked up a touchdown and a two-point conversion in the fourth quarter for a backdoor cover, falling 21-18 in Week 1. Baltimore also covered, topping the Bengals on the road by a 20-0 count. As such, they moved to 9-1 ATS over their past 10 games against AFC North foes.

However, Ravens QB Joe Flacco looks rather limited in what he can do, and the team lost the versatile Danny Woodhead to a hamstring injury in Week 1. Baltimore is likely to grind out a victory in Week 2, but it certainly will not be a blowout. While Cleveland is 1-10-1 ATS over their past 12 divisional battles, they’re a respectable 5-2 ATS in their past seven trips to Charm City. The road team is also 4-1-1 ATS in the past six meetings overall in this series.

  1. Broncos (+2 1/2) over Cowboys

The Broncos are short ‘dogs on their own turf against the Cowboys, but the offense should be able to move the ball well. Orlando Scandrick has been ruled out for Sunday’s game after surgery to repair a broken left hand. That means Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders should find some wide open spaces to roam, and they do not have to worry about Anthony Hitchens applying pressure, either, as he is out for a second straight weekend.

The Broncos pushed last week after a fourth-quarter collapse against the Chargers. However, they have been money at home in recent seasons, going 7-3-2 ATS over their past 12 home games, while also posting a 13-6-1 ATS mark over their last 20 following a non-cover the previous week. The Cowboys are coming off a 19-3 victory at home over the Giants on Sunday Night Football, but they also caught a break with Odell Beckham Jr. sidelined due to injury. The pass offense struggled at times and was bailed out by the running of Ezekiel Elliott. He isn’t likely to find as much real estate against Denver’s sturdy run defense which allowed just 2.9 yards per carry in Week 1.
