Bills vs. Jaguars Spread Prediction
The Buffalo Bills have pulled off some big upsets this year and find themselves yet again as an underdog on Sunday. Will the Bills pull off a smaller upset today when they host the beleaguered Jacksonville Jaguars at 1:00 p.m. ET?
251 Jacksonville Jaguars at 252 Buffalo Bills
1:00 p.m. ET, Sunday, November 25

Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Jaguars are 3-point favorites to beat the Bills. The total, meanwhile, sits at 37 points. As of this writing, 62% of the public betting tickets are on the Jaguars to cover the point spread.
Jags WR D.J. Chark (quad) is out for Week 12 against the Bills. Chark has run as the team's third wideout ever since Keelan Cole lost a fumble prior to Jacksonville's bye. Cole should re-enter three-wide sets, but it's admittedly a terrible matchup for all against the Bills' secondary. Blake Bortles will also be tasked in getting all the ball without LT Josh Walker (foot/ankle) protecting his blindside.
Josh Allen will start Week 12 against the Jaguars. He's been practicing in full this week and is over the elbow injury that has shelved him since Week 6. Matt Barkley filled in admirably two weeks back against the Jets and will be the backup. Allen obviously isn't a redraft asset.
NFL Betting Trends
The Jaguars are 0-4-2 against the spread in their last six games overall and 0-3-2 ATS in their last five games coming off a loss.
The Bills are 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games played in the month of November.
The Bills pulled off upsets versus the Vikings and Titans this season and now host a Jaguars team coming off its worse loss of the season (a total collapse in the fourth quarter last week versus the Steelers). Jacksonville is the significantly better team but I don’t know how motivated the Jaguars will be for this game in Buffalo. This is the time of year it’s wise to bet against the southern teams going into colder elements. I’m fading a Jags team that I see rolling over today Buffalo.
