How often do you see a winless team favored at home in NFL betting this far along in the season? Here is a look at some of the interesting football betting numbers for Jacksonville and Tennessee.
Football betting has the Titans as a three point home favorite against the Jaguars. The spotlight in this game is on the Tennessee quarterback situation as head coach Jeff Fisher wants to stay with starting quarterback Kerry Collins while owner Bud Adams wants backup Vince Young to start. Last year the Titans had the best record in the league with Collins at the helm but things have come apart this season and Collins has not played well. The one thing about the football betting stats for both quarterbacks in this game is that Young has not played well in his career against the Jags. He has thrown eight interceptions with only four TD passes in his five football betting games against Jacksonville. The Jaguars are not too worried about who will play quarterback for Tennessee. “It’s not affecting our team. We can’t rely on that to dictate how we play,” Jaguars cornerback Rashean Mathis said, “We still have to play football. We know they’re two different elements, so we have to adjust to it.”
Neither team has good football betting trends for this game. The Jaguars are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall. On grass the Jaguars have been terrible in football betting. They are 5-16 in football betting in their last 21 games on grass. Jacksonville is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 meetings in Tennessee.
Tennessee has not played well at home laying points in football betting. They are 1-4 in NFL betting in their last 5 games as a home favorite. They are also poor in NFL betting in their division as they are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 vs. the AFC South.
The total in football betting has some interesting trends for bettors to take into consideration. Six of the last seven Jacksonville games on the road when they are getting points have gone under the NFL betting. Four of the past five Tennessee games have gone over the total. Seven of the last ten Tennessee games at home have gone over the football betting total.
