Tyrod Taylor is completing 61.4 percent of his passes for 1,935 yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. Taylor has one or less touchdown pass in four straight games.

The Jaguars are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a straight up loss and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Bills are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up win. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
Even with the Buffalo Bills being solid at home and the Jacksonville Jaguars not the best road team in the world, this is a lot of points to give a subpar Bills team. The Bills don't exactly blow teams out and actually struggle to win games period due to an offense that can go several series without putting points on the board. Jacksonville competes and has an offense that's shown progress recently. I'll take my free 7.5 points and call it a day.
