The Jacksonville Jaguars have really struggled as of recent as they have dropped 5 consecutive games, and they are forced to travel all the way across the country against a hungry Oakland team. The Raiders have suffered back-to-back blowout losses, but it was against playoff teams, and I expect them to unload on a Jacksonville team that has been awful on defense. The Raiders should have their star RB back in Josh Jacobs (1067 yards, 11 TDs) as the rookie sat out against the Titans, but he also helps Derek Carr and the air attack as it keeps the defense honest. The Jaguars are very thin at the LB position as they lost two starters in the last week, and I expect TE Darren Waller to expose whatever mismatch the Jaguars defense throws at him. Jacksonville is a mess and this won’t be the game that they figure it out. Final Score Prediction, Oakland Raiders win and cover ATS 31-17.
