The Jacksonville Jaguars and Detroit Lions face off on Sunday in an NFL showdown at Ford Field in Detroit. When these two teams faced off in 2020 it was the Lions that secured the 34-16 victory. 

The Jaguars come into this game with a 4-7 record, and they have gone 4-6-1 against the spread. In the last couple of weeks, the Jaguars have shown flashes of being solid, and there is some hope for this team going forward. In the last game against the Baltimore Ravens, the Jaguars scored 18 points in the 4th quarter, and that was enough to secure the win by a point. Trevor Lawrence completed 29 of his 37 passes for 321 yards, three touchdowns, and three touchdowns. The Jaguars are averaging 22.2 points, while their defense is giving up 21.1 points per game. Travis Etienne Jr had to leave the last game with a foot injury, but it’s expected he will be able to play here. In this game, the Jaguars are going to need a big game from Lawrence. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Lions, who sit with a 4-7 record, and they have gone 7-4 against the spread. In the last game against the Buffalo Bills, the Lions were competitive, but they ended up losing 28-25. The defense only gave up 11 points in the second half, but it wasn’t enough as they were defeated. Jared Goff completed 23 of his 37 passes for 240 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions. Jamaal Williams finished with 18 carries for 66 yards and a touchdown. The Lions are averaging 25 points, while their defense is giving up 28.2 points per game. The offense is ranked 8th, but the defense is ranked 32nd. 

The Lions are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games. The under is 6-0 in the Jaguar's last six games in Week 13. 

This is going to be a game where there won’t be a lot of defense played by either team. The Lions are averaging 25 points per game, but their defense has been awful, and they are going to struggle to slow down Lawrence here. There won’t be a lot of defense played by either team, and the over is going to cash here. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
