Jaguars vs. Patriots Free Pick
The New England Patriots will be double-digit favorites against the Jacksonville Jaguars when the two teams kick off at 1:00PM ET today.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Patriots are 13.5-point home favorites versus the Jaguars after opening as 13-point faves. As for the total, it opened at 48 and is now up to 48.5 points.
The Jaguars have an improved pass rush under coach Gus Bradley but their secondary remains an issue. That's a bad problem to have when facing Tom Brady, who negates most pass-rushes by getting the ball out of his hand as quickly as any quarterback in the league. Jacksonville will need to keep pace in this game, which will be an issue due to its sometimes stagnant offense.
The Jags are just 1-4 against the spread in their last five trips to Foxboro and the home team is 5-2 at the betting window in the last seven meetings between these two teams. Lay the points.
