The Line: Jacksonville Jaguars +7 -- Over/Under: 45.5 See the Latest Odds
The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Dallas Cowboys face off on Sunday in London in an NFL week 10 battle.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have won just one game this season and have lost their last two games by double-digit margins. The Jaguars are the worst in the NFL in average points per game at 15.7 and 30th in average yards at 313.1 and they have a dreadful minus nine turnover ratio. Blake Brtles ahs completed 63.9 percent of his passes with 13 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Denard Robinson is Jacksonville’s leading rusher with 423 yards and two touchdowns and Allen Robinson has 43 receptions to lead the Jags while Allen Hurns has 29 catches and five touchdowns. The Jaguars defense allows 27.9 points which ranks 30th in the NFL and a 26th ranked 386.9 yards. Paul Posluszny has 69 tackles, Johnathan Cyprien has 62 tackles, and Josh Evans has 49 tackles. Jacksonville still very much appears to be a work in progress.

The Dallas Cowboys have lost their last two games to slip into second place in the NFC East but they are in contention for a spot in the playoffs. The Cowboys offense is averaging 25.6 points and 386.2 yards per game and they are minus three in turnover ratio. The question this week for the Cowboys is at QB when Tony Romo is injured and missed last week’s game and this status for this week in unknown and if he can’t go it will be Brandon Weeden once again. DeMarco Murray is having a monster year gaining 1,133 yards with seven touchdowns and Dez Bryant leads the Cowboys in receiving with 50 receptions and six touchdowns. The Dallas defense allows 21.7 points and 350.6 yards per game. Barry Church has 52 tackles, Justin Durant has 44 tackles, and Rolando McClain has 44 tackles and two interceptions. The Cowboys still haven’t had a bye this season and they sure could use it.
Jacksonville is 8-20-2 against the spread in their last 30 games, 1-4-1 against the spread against a team with a winning record, and 1-5-2 against the spread following a game that they didn’t cover the point spread. Dallas is 7-19 against the spread against a team with a losing record, 1-4 against the spread following a loss, and 6-2 against the spread in week 10 games. The underdog is 3-0-1 against the spread in the last four meetings of these two.
The total is set at 45.5 and I see this one staying under that number as the Jags don't score and Dallas will likely keep it on the ground and limit Romo's contact. I also have a play on who will cover the spread and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
