Redskins vs. Jaguars Total Prediction

Washington Redskins vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, 12/14/18 Predictions & Odds

The Washington Redskins will start their fourth different quarterback on Sunday when Josh Johnson faces the Jacksonville Jaguars at 1:00 p.m. ET. Even with the total sitting in the mid-30s, will the under still cash for bettors?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Jaguars are 7.5-point favorites to beat the Redskins. The total, meanwhile, sits at 36 points. As of this writing, 56% of the public betting tickets are on the Jaguars to cover the point spread.

Washington Redskins

Coach Jay Gruden confirmed after Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Giants that Josh Johnson will be the Redskins' Week 15 starting quarterback. Signed off the street just this last week, Johnson engineered two scoring drives after replacing Mark Sanchez in the second half with Washington down 40-0. Johnson finished 11-of-16 passing for 195 yards, a 79-yard touchdown to Jamison Crowder, one interception, and 7/45/1 rushing, including an eight-yard score on the ground. Johnson is a 32-year-old journeyman who's spent time on nearly half of the NFL's rosters. The Redskins visit Jacksonville next.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Cody Kessler completed 25-of-43 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown in the Jaguars' Week 14 loss to the Titans. If you watched this game, there's no way you would have thought Kessler threw for 240 yards, but that is the power of good old fashioned garbage time. The Titans were effective in bringing pressure, which put Kessler on his back and kept the Jaguars offense out of sync. Kessler will not be projected for 43 pass attempts next week when the Jaguars face fellow USC alum Mark Sanchez and the Washington Redskins. That's, of course, assuming that Blake Bortles doesn't take the starting job back.

NFL Betting Trends

Washington

The under is 8-1 in the Redskins’ last nine games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.

Jacksonville

The under is 6-1 in the Jaguars’ last seven games after allowing more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game.

Prediction

I don’t see how either of these teams move the ball offensively. Kessler has been nothing more than a game manager for the Jaguars and the Redskins are starting a guy in Johnson that was signed less than two weeks ago. Johnson admitted earlier this week that he played the Madden football game so that he could learned his new teammates’ names. The under is 4-0 in the Jaguars’ last four home games and is 6-2 in the Redskins’ last eight road games.

NFL Week 15 Prediction: Redskins/Jaguars under 36
