The Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars face off on Saturday in a Week 18 NFL showdown at the TIAA Bank Field. The winner of this game is going to make the playoffs, while the loser will probably have their season ended. When these two teams face off in December, it was Jacksonville that secured the 26-22 victory. 

The Titans come into this game with a 7-9 record overall, and they have gone 8-6-2 against the spread. Last Thursday, the Titans faced off against the Dallas Cowboys, and the offense only scored 13 points on the way to the defeat. Josh Dobbs was the starting quarterback, and he completed 20 of his 39 passes for 232 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. Dobbs is going to get the start again in this game. The Titans are averaging 17.6 points, while their defense is giving up 21.2 points per game. Derrick Henry is still the focal point of the offense, and they need a big game here. 

On the other side of these Jaguars who sits with an 8-8 record, and they have gone 8-7-1 against the spread. The Jaguars have played well heading into this game and over the last two games they have given up only six points total. In the last game against the Houston Texans, they were able to secure a 31-3 victory. Trevor Lawrence completed 17 of his 21 passes for 152 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception. The Jaguars are averaging 24 points, while their defense is giving up 20.8 points per game. The offense is ranked 11th in the league, and they require another big game from Lawrence. 

The Jaguars are 5-0-1 against the spread in their last six games against the AFC. The Titans are 0-4-2 against the spread in their last six games. The under is 4-0 in the Jaguar's last 4 games after accumulating more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.

Dobbs is a better quarterback than Malik Willis at this point, but he’s not even close to good enough to compete with Lawrence. Over the last two games the Jaguars have given up only six points and the Titans are going to really struggle to score here. Lawrence is going to run up the score here, and the Jaguars are going to get the job done here. This will be a 30-10 or 30-13 type of game. Back the Jaguars to win this game and cover the spread.
