Public Betting Information
The Jaguars are currently receiving 53% of the wagers for tonight's game. Perhaps with the Falcons currently sitting at 0-3 both straight up and against the spread this preseason, bettors are buying into the fact that they'll lose again.
OUR PREDICTION: The Falcons haven't looked sharp this preseason but they have a veteran quarterback in Matt Schaub that should see extended time against the Jaguars' backups tonight. Atlanta has better depth than Jacksonville and depth is about the only thing you can lean on with these preseason games. I say the Falcons pick up their first win tonight of the preseason.
