Can Robinson score again?
Allen Robinson was snubbed for the Pro Bowl this week. Does that mean he will have a big game for the Jacksonville Jaguars today against the New Orleans Saints?
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, the Saints are favored at home in this game, as they are getting odds of -3 points against the Jaguars. The over/under total for the contest has yet to be set. These two meet today at 4:05PM ET on CBS.
Robinson is actually tied for the league-lead in TD catches with 13. He has also caught 69 passes for 1,141 yards this season for the Jaguars (5-9, 7-6-1 ATS). The second-year receiver has more than doubled his total yards from a year ago. He had just two touchdowns as a rookie in 2014. Today, Robinson has a great matchup against the Saints (5-9, 6-7-1 ATS), who rank 30th in pass defense. New Orleans is giving up 276.4 yards per game through the air this season and they also give up the most points at 30.9 per game. Oddsmakers have listed Robinson with odds of -145 to score a touchdown in this game and a money line of +700 to score the first touchdown.
When it comes to touchdowns, the Saints have given up the second most TDs to receivers this season at 23. Only the Ravens have given up more in 2015 (25). That should be a good sign for Robinson, who has scored in four straight games, totaling six touchdowns in that span. He has caught a touchdown pass in nine different games with three multiple-TD outings.
