Why the Jaguars can cover the spread

One week after blowing out Baltimore in London, the Jags suffered a tough 23-20 overtime loss at the Jets last week. Jacksonville trailed that game in the fourth quarter 20-10, forged a tie on a short field goal with a minute to go but lost on a New York field goal with less than a minute remaining in OT.

The Jaguars had a chance to take a late lead but were forced to settle for a game-tying field goal after reaching the Jets four-yard line. In fact, Jacksonville scored earlier on that drive on a Leonard Fournette catch-run from 23 yards out, but the play was negated by a holding penalty. Then, late in overtime, the Jags had a chance to hang on for the tie, but a questionable unsportsmanlike penalty on captain Paul Posluszny set New York up for its game-winning kick.

Two weeks ago, Jacksonville put on one of its best performances in recent memory, routing the Ravens 44-7. The Jags outgained Baltimore that day 410-186. Through four games, Jacksonville ranks second in the league in rushing, averaging 149 yards per game, fifth in scoring at 27 points per game and 10th in total defense, holding opponents to 313 YPG.

Why the Steelers can cover the spread

Pittsburgh, sitting among the favorites at +800 (bet $100 to win $800) on the Super Bowl odds, just bounced back from that overtime loss at Chicago to beat those Ravens last week 26-9. The Steelers led 19-0 at the half, allowed Baltimore to get within 19-9 late in the third but held on from there and covered as four-point favorites on the road.

On the day, Pittsburgh outgained the Ravens 381-288, outrushed them 173-82 and held a 35/25 time of possession advantage. Running back Le’Veon Bell led the way with his best performance of this season, rushing for 144 yards, adding 42 on receptions and scoring two touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the Steelers defense created three turnovers, recorded four sacks and held Baltimore to a single touchdown. For the moment, Pittsburgh only ranks 21st in total offense at 322 YPG but second in total defense, allowing just 267 YPG.
