Chargers @ Jaguars 4:05 PM ET
Play On: Chargers -5.0 (5*)
Jacksonville is a dismal 0-4 SU&ATS during their last 4 outings, and they lost by a substantial 20.5 points per game. That recent funk has dropped their season record to 4-8 and put head coach Doug Marrone on the hot seat. If you think the Jaguar players are going to go all out to save their head coach’s job, then think again. It’s been widely publicized that Marrone has been far less than a player friendly head coach during his tenure in Jacksonville.
The Chargers have lost 3 straight and are a very disappointing 4-8. They’re coming off last Sunday’s 23-20 loss at Denver in a game they closed as a 4.0-point favorite. The losses during this win streak have come by the narrow margins of 2, 3, and 7 points. This is a team that’s still playing hard for head coach Anthony Lynn and they’ll be rewarded for doing so in this contest.
Any road favorite of 8.0 or less (Chargers) playing in games 5 through 13 that’s coming off a straight up favorite loss, and they own a win percentage of .250 to .400, versus an opponent (Jaguars) who has a losing record, resulted in those road favorites going 27-4 ATS (87.1%) since 1980, and 16-0 ATS since 2005. Bet on the Chargers minus the points for a 5* wager.
