Jacksonville Jaguars At New York Jets Picks & Betting Predictions

Jacksonville Jaguars At New York Jets Picks & Betting Predictions

While at one end of the standings, there are key battles in NFL betting with playoff implications on the Week 16 slate, at the other end of the standings, there are contests that will play out and impact the order of the NFL Draft. Sunday’s Jacksonville Jaguars-New York Jets game is certainly among the latter lot.

The Jets are 3-11 and have lost six of their last seven games. The Jaguars are 2-12 and losers of six in a row. While mobile sports betting in New York is not live yet (it is expected in time for the Super Bowl), it’s the home-team Jets that are being made the 2.5-point favorites in the NFL picks for this game.

Jaguars vs Jets Key Matchups

Showdown of the top two draft picks: Jacksonville selected QB Trevor Lawrence first overall in the 2020 NFL Draft. Selecting second, the Jets took QB Zach Wilson. Neither is living up to that billing. Lawrence shares the NFL lead with 14 interceptions. Wilson has been picked off 11 times. His 3.6% interception percentage is tied for second-worst in the league.

Weapons? What Weapons?: Jaguars RB James Robinson, 18th in the NFL with 757 yards, is the only player on either team ranked among the league’s top-30 in rushing. Jacksonville WR Marvin Jones, 44th in the NFL with 644 yards, is the only player on either team who rates among the top-57 in receiving yards.

Which defense will fail most often?: The Jets are 32nd in the NFL in both total defense and scoring defense. Jacksonville is 29th in total defense and 28th in scoring defense. These defenses both bend and break.

5 Key Jaguars vs Jets Stats

1: Number of TD passes thrown by Jaguars rookie QB Trevor Lawrence over the past seven games.

6: Total interceptions by both the Jets and Jaguars this season. Only two teams have fewer picks.

1+: Giveaways by the Jets in 13 of 14 games this season. That’s an NFL high.

1-5: Jacksonville coach Darrell Bevell’s record as an interim NFL head coach. He was 1-4 last season with the Detroit Lions.

Jaguars vs Jets Weather Forecast

For a late-December game, the forecast is quite forgiving, which has to be good news for the Jaguars as they visit from the sunny south. The call is for cloudy skies, 4 mph wind conditions and a temperature of 41 degrees. Jacksonville’s last six wins were earned in Florida (five) or California (one).


Jaguars vs Jets Moneyline

For the first time in 27 games, sportsbooks have the Jets as favorites to win a game. The last time the Jets took the field as the team to beat in the moneyline was on Oct. 1, 2020 against the Denver Broncos. They haven’t succeeded as the moneyline chalk since winning 13-6 at Buffalo as a one-point choice on Dec. 29, 2019.

Jacksonville has won two straight from the Jets but has lost the last three road games to New York’s AFC squad. In fact, the Jags have lost 18 straight on the road. But it feels like this could be the game where that streak ends. Take the Jaguars.
