The Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Washington Redskins on Thursday night at 7:30PM ET in both team’s final preseason games of the year.
The Redskins enter this game with a 1-2 record in preseason, while the Jaguars have stumbled to a 0-3 start, including 0-1 record at home. Despite its losing record, Washington is 2-1 against the spread this preseason.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sports Interaction have made the Jaguars a 5-point favorite over the Redskins on Thursday night. The over/under total has been set at 35.
The trends favor Jacksonville in this matchup as the Redskins are just 3-12 ATS as an underdog of 3.5 to 9.5 points since 1993 and 1-10 ATS as a road underdog of 3.5 to 7 points since ’93.
The point spread in this game seems a little high given that most preseason games this week fall between 3 and 3.5. That said, Jacksonville will look to play most of its starters for the first half as Jack Del Rio tries to workout the team’s kinks before the regular season opener. Don’t be fooled by the point spread – take Jacksonville –5.
