This is a rough game, and I’m not looking to get involved on either side. The Jacksonville Jaguars are awful, obviously, and are near the bottom on both sides of the ball, but four of their last nine losses have been decided by 10 or fewer points. The Tennessee Titans have had an extra week to prepare for this game, and they’re at home, but they’ve been rough since the injury to Derrick Henry and the offense just isn’t there right now. The Titans should win, but I’m not lying that sort of chalk. It’s the Jags or pass.
