SHOTGUN SUNDAY NFL #2
Jacksonville Jaguars (1-8) vs Pittsburgh Steelers (9-0)

I get Pittsburgh being favored here and I agree with it whole-heartedly as a 9-0 team against a 1-8 Jacksonville team. However, the Steelers haven’t been overly convincing in a lot of their recent games and Pittsburgh has a key division matchup in primetime with the Baltimore Ravens on a short week on Thanksgiving, so this feels like a prime look-ahead spot. Jake Luton’s been a capable replacement at quarterback for Jacksonville and I just feel like this could be a spot where the Jaguars can sneak in the backdoor, which has happened in their two losses ATS this season. The two failed covers have come against a pair of teams that are a combined 5-13 SU this season, so I think Pittsburgh may play down to Jacksonville here. I can see a game around 28-20 for Pittsburgh or something in that area, so I’ll take the Jacksonville Jaguars and the points as my premium pick for this game.
