Los Angeles had no answers for Aaron Rodgers and could not fight back after a 33-yard pick-six by the Packers Rasul Douglas gave Green Bay a 36-17 lead with 1:52 left in the 3rd quarter. Los Angeles was outgained by Green Bay by a 399-353 margin and lost the turnover battle by a 3-1 margin in the loss.

The Jaguars are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 December games and just 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game. The Rams are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in Week 13 and 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 games following a straight up loss.
Los Angeles has been struggling as of late, however, a home game against Jacksonville should be what the doctor order for the Rams as Jacksonville is coming off an ugly loss against Atlanta and come into this game with an 0-4 record on the road. Los Angeles should have no problem taking away the Jaguars best weapon, James Robinson, out of the game with their solid run defense and as I think the Rams offense will be able to put up 35+ points against the Jaguars defense, I think the Rams run away with this one and cover this large home spread. Good Luck!
