Dolphins vs. Jaguars Spread Predictions

Miami Dolphins vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, 12/23/18 Week 16 Predictions

The Miami Dolphins are laying more than a field goal at home Sunday versus the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars. Given the Jaguars’ offensive issues are the Dolphins worth a play for bettors?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Dolphins are 3.5-point favorites to beat the Jaguars. The total, meanwhile, sits at 38 points. As of this writing, 70% of the public betting tickets are on the Dolphins to cover the point spread.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Jaguars placed RT Jermey Parnell (knee) on injured reserve. He was already ruled out for Week 16. Parnell's missed six games to injuries the last two seasons and has struggled to stay above replacement level when healthy. Signed though 2019, Jacksonvile can save $6 million if they move on from Parnell this offseason.

Miami Dolphins

Xavien Howard (knee) is questionable for Week 16 against the Jaguars. Howard's been limited in practice this week after missing the previous two games and seems to be on the right side of the Q tag for now. His return would be a big boost to those looking to stream the Dolphins defense Sunday.

NFL Betting Trends

Jacksonville

The Jaguars are 0-4-1 against the spread in their last five road games and are just 1-7-2 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

Miami

The Dolphins are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven home games.

Prediction

The Jaguars have been abysmal offensively since Cody Kessler took over for Blake Bortles at quarterback. Kessler has led the Jaguars to only one touchdown drive and a handful of field goals. Get the Jags defense away from Jacksonville and they struggle as well. With nothing to play for, I’m fading the Jags in a series where the favorite is 5-2-1 against the spread in the last eight meetings.
