Down at EverBank Field on Sunday, the Los Angeles Chargers will be visiting the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 10 NFL action.
The Chargers come into this matchup with a 3-5 record overall. LA had won three straight games against the Giants, Raiders and Broncos but lost their last outing versus the Patriots. In that one, Chargers QB Philip Rivers managed 212 yards with one TD and one INT.
On the year, Rivers has 2028 yards with 13 touchdowns and six picks, and Melvin Gordon leads the Chargers on 526 rush yards with four TDs off 131 attempts. Keenan Allen is the top LA receiver on 548 yards, one TD and 40 catches.
Over on the Jaguars’ side, they’re currently 5-3 on the year. The Jags have won three of their last four, getting victories over the Steelers, Colts and Bengals. In that Bengals game, Jaguars QB Blake Bortles put up 259 yards with one TD.
This season, Bortles has 1647 yards, 10 touchdowns and five INTs, and Leonard Fournette leads the Jacksonville rush on 596 yards and six scores from 130 carries. Marquise Lee heads up the Jags’ receiving corps with 438 yards and a TD on 32 receptions.
The Chargers are 12-5-1 ATS in their last 18 road games and 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall. LA is also 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games following an ATS loss and 1-6 ATS versus a team with a winning record.
Meanwhile, the Jaguars are 8-2 ATS in the last 10 versus the AFC and 11-4 ATS in the last 15 games in Week 10. Jacksonville is also 8-3 ATS int heir last 11 games overall and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games in November.
The Chargers showed a little promise during their three-game win streak, but realistically those victories came against three not-so-good teams. Still, LA hung in there against Philly and New England so they deserve at least some credit. As for the Jaguars, two of their three losses have come by 10 points or fewer and they’ve allowed just seven combined points in their last two games. With that in mind I like the Jaguars defense to keep it going here and help them bag a cover.
