Jaguars vs Jets Predictions Week 16 | NFL Pick of the Day

This is a game for the ages. The battle of the top-two quarterbacks taken in this past year’s NFL Draft.

But sadly, both teams are atrocious. The Jaguars were home favorites over the Houston Texans in Week 15 and lost by two scores, but the Jets did manage to cover against the Miami Dolphins.

This is going to be a tough game to watch, but let’s try to win some money, huh?

Please note that all NFL Week 16 odds and lines are current as of 1 PM EST on Thursday, December 23.

Richard’s Prediction Picks Record: 10-13 (-0.35 units)

Jaguars vs Jets Prediction

Zach Wilson and Trevor Lawrence are among the worst quarterbacks in the league. No, their teams don’t help that, but they both have at least 15 turnover-worthy plays, according to Pro Football Focus. While Lawrence has more, keep in mind that Wilson missed time with an injury, so it’s safe to say he would be up there with Lawrence’s 21, too.

The Jaguars are void of any talent. Their only deep threat is an aging Marvin Jones Jr. and the rest of their receivers have an average depth of target in the low single digits.

To further illustrate how dire the circumstances are for the Jaguars, their emerging option opposite Jones Jr. is Laquon Treadwell.

The Jets don’t have much going on either, but they are more talented at the receiver position.

The running game matchup leans toward the Jaguars and James Robinson, who’s coming off a rushing touchdown in the post-Urban Meyer era.

With a game like this, you need to take a look at the full body of work. The Jaguars are a legitimately bad team with minimal hope besides Lawrence, and that won’t change until this team drastically improves.

Prediction: Jets 17, Jaguars 14


Jaguars vs Jets Best Bets

Best Bet: Jets Moneyline (-110) at Caesars

Wager: 0.5 Units

I’m going to reserve my bet here to 0.5 units because both of these teams are so bad that it could get interesting in the turnover department. New York also has experienced a COVID-19 outbreak, which has seen 17 players and Head Coach Robert Saleh put on the reserve/COVID list.

However, at home, the Jets have shown the ability to at least score in some creative ways—albeit just a few—giving them the edge here.

In hindsight, it’s insane to imagine the Jaguars having a full touchdown in the spread column against the Texans in Week 15.

This team is downright bad, and while the Jets are no better, at least they have cornerback Bryce Hall, who has been competent this season. He should handle either Jones Jr. or Treadwell and then it’s going to be a rough situation for Lawrence.

In a pick’em, I’ll take the Jets here.

Side note: If any player props for either quarterback come in concerning rushing yards, I’d take the Over on both.

Best Bet: Under 41.5 Total Points (-110) at Caesars

Wager: 0.25 Units

We’re going even lower on the units here because, again, the turnovers could be what makes this game get a bit crazy in the scoring department.

You could check on this game and it could be 30-28 and it’s because of fumbles, interceptions, and more, while neither quarterback has a touchdown to their name.

However, both offenses have been horrific this season. Both quarterbacks have been horrific. Both defenses have been horrific.

Unless the turnovers turn the tide here, this is going to be a run-focused game, and we may hear the telecast use the word “gritty” a few times.

This is going to be a tough game to watch all around, culminating with the Under.

NFL Betting News

  • Early money slightly leaning towards the over in the 49ers-Rams matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting good two-way action on the over/under for the NFC Championship Game matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 46 points has attracted 55% of the bets and 60% of the money thus far. Much moreso than the AFC Championship Game, the betting splits on the point spread and total in this game are much more evenly split, so the sportsbook does not have too much liability on either at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Los Angeles's -170 moneyline odds have attracted 60% of the bets and 70% of the money.

  • Early bettors give slight lean to the Rams over the 49ers

    Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Los Angeles Rams are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Los Angeles's -3.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 61% of the handle thus far. Bettors are clearly torn in this matchup considering the Rams have arguably been playing better football through the first two playoff games, while the 49ers have won six consecutive games against the Rams, including a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory in Los Angeles.

  • Early money more than 4/1 on the over in the Bengals-Chiefs matchup

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's over/under in the matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the over of 54.5 points has attracted 75% of the bets and 85% of the money thus far. At this point, the sportsbook has big liability to the Chiefs point spread and the over in this matchup, as their most ideal scenario would be a Bengals cover in a low-scoring game at the moment. From a moneyline perspective, Kansas City's -335 moneyline odds have attracted 58% of the bets and 61% of the money.

    CIN vs. KC Game Page

  • Early money 3/1 on the Chiefs over the Bengals

    DraftKings Sportsbook is reporting one-sided betting action for Sunday's matchup between the Cincinnati Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, as the majority of the action is backing the favored Chiefs.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, Kansas City's -7 point spread has received 61% of the bets and 76% of the handle thus far. Cincinnati is shaping up to be the biggest need of any side or any total this weekend, as the public seems to be enamored with the Chiefs after their thrilling Divisional Round win over Buffalo.

  • 49ers-Rams over/under reaches lowest number of the week

    After another line movement, the over/under for the NFC Championship matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Rams has reached its lowest total of the week.

    Betting Impact:
    Per DraftKings, the 49ers-Rams over/under on Sunday night was posted at 47.5 points. It was quickly bet down to 46.5 in less than 24 hours. However, it has once again moved toward the under, and now currently sits at 46 points. Given that there has not yet been buyback on the over, it is extremely unlikely we see the total get back to anywhere close to the 47.5 points it opened at.
