The Line: Tennessee Titans -4.5 -- O/U: 54
The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans meet in a Madden 20 NFL Sim Classic matchup on Friday afternoon.
The Jacksonville Jaguars come into this game looking to rebound from a 40-30 loss to Houston in their opening Sim Classic matchup last time up. Leonard Fournette leads the jaguars on offense with an 83 overall rating with 92 speed and 96 carrying. D.J. Chark Jr. sits at 81 overall at wide receiver with 91 catching as well. On the defensive end for Jacksonville, each level of the Jaguars’ defense has a player rated at 84 overall, with A.J. Bouye anchoring the secondary, Telvin Smith in the linebacking corps and Yannick Ngakoue on the defensive line. Bouye owns an 89 speed rating with 94 acceleration and 91 agility while Smith has 87 speed with 89 acceleration and 88 agility.
The Tennessee Titans will look to build on a 24-19 win to kick off their Sim Classic over Indianapolis. Derrick Henry leads Tennessee with a 91 overall rating with 91 speed, 87 strength, 91 carrying and 98 stiff arm while Delanie Walker comes up at 86 overall as the Titans’ top tight end with 86 catching. A.J. Brown and Corey Davis make up the top tandem at wide receiver, rated just 80 and 79 overall respectively, while Ryan Tannehill comes in at 80 overall at starting quarterback for the Titans. On defense, Kevin Byard shares the team-high rating on the defensive end at 91 overall with 93 zone coverage and 90 speed while Logan Ryan is at 86 overall at cornerback with 87 speed, 91 acceleration and 90 agility with 92 play recognition. Jurrell Casey also checks in at 85 overall at right defensive end with 92 play recognition, 89 tackling and 89 impact blocking as well as 92 strength.
I’ve said before that a lot of these sim matchups all depend on which simulation is used for the matchup, but this is one of the matchups that we’ve seen be played out twice, and the Jaguars won both of those games. I think that the Titans are the better team, but from what we’ve seen there’s value with Jacksonville and the points as well as a bit on Jacksonville moneyline.
