The Jacksonville Jaguars dropped to 2-7 on the season after being defeated by the Indianapolis Colts, 23-17, this past Sunday. Jacksonville fought back from an early 17-0 deficit to make it a game late after a 1-yard TD run by James Robinson put the Jaguars behind by just a 20-17 margin, however, Indianapolis came up big defensively late and was able to seal the victory after sacking and recovering a Trevor Lawrance fumble with under a minute left in the 4th quarter. Jacksonville outgained Indianapolis by a 331-295 margin, however, lost the turnover battle by a 1-0 margin in the loss. Leading the way for the Jaguars was James Robinson who had 12 carries for 57 yards & 1 TD.

The 49ers are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a losing record and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a ATS win. The Jaguars are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 November games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a losing record.
San Francisco is coming off an impressive victory against Los Angeles, however, this is still a team that recently loss to an Arizona Cardinals team that did not have Kyler Murray and have struggled at times defensively this season. Jacksonville hasn’t won many games, however, outside of their game at Seattle, has played well over the last month and have been led by the a defense that over the past two weeks has held two high-powered offenses in Buffalo & Indianapolis to just a combined 23 points. I’m expecting a letdown by San Francisco in this one and as I think Jacksonville can keep this one competitive at home, I’m taking the Jaguars and the points. Good Luck!
