NFL Playoff Free Pick: Take Jacksonville. According to latest NFL trends, the Jets are just 1-6 against the spread in their last 7 games against the Jaguars and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a win. Jacksonville is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a failed cover. The Jets have plenty of issues as Mark Sanchez will start at QB despite being pulled in last week’s 7-6 win over the Cardinals. The Jets have a decent defense, but the offense is a mess. The Jaguars have shown improvement on offense since asserting Chad Henne at quarterback. Look for the Jaguars to be able to do enough to stay right with the Jets and cover the slim spread.
