The Jaguars are 19-42 ATS in their last 61 home games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win and 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Jaguars last 5 overall and the over is 5-2 in Phoenix last 7 overall.
The Green Bay Phoenix are a squad that's falling apart, and it starts with a defense that's allowed 80 or more points in each of thir last three games. The IUPUI Jaguars have defensive struggles of their own, but they've played their best ball at home this season and have won three of the last four meetings against Green Bay. There's better options on Friday's card, but if I'm going to pick this contest, I'd eat the reasonable line with the IUPUI Jaguars.
