Tennessee was a three-point favorite in their Week 14 matchup, but the Titans vs. Jaguars odds at online sportsbooks list the Jags as favorites this time.

Jacksonville beat the Titans by two touchdowns during Week 14 in Nashville. Can they do it again at home?

The Titans (7-9 SU, 8-7-1 ATS) got the season off to an excellent start by winning seven of their first 10 games but have been on a losing streak of late, dropping their last six games. They had also been a good team ATS, going 8-2 ATS through Week 11. But along with losing the last six in a row straight up, they’ve floundered ATS, going 0-5-1 during the losing streak.

On the other hand, Jacksonville (8-8 SU, 8-8 ATS) got off to a poor start this season with three wins in their first 10 games, straight up and ATS. But once they started winning games, they fared better against the spread. They’ve gone 5-1 straight up over the last six weeks and 5-1 ATS.

Titans’ Defense Getting Healthy Just in Time

Titans running back Derrick Henry has been a force to be reckoned with every time he’s faced the Jaguars. In 12 career games against the Jags, Henry has averaged 105.3 yards a game and at least one touchdown. He had 121 yards and a score in Week 14, but it wasn’t enough to lead the team to a win.

But the issue in that game and for the last few weeks has been Tennessee’s injury-riddled defense, which should not be as much of a problem on Saturday. Jeffery Simmons and Denico Autry sat out the Dallas game but should be good to go this week. Kristian Fulton, Amani Hooker, and David Long are expected to come off the IR.

Henry sat out last week, too, but will be active Saturday.

However, a relatively healthy defense and an offense with Henry in the backfield may not be enough to overcome a red-hot Jaguars team. Trevor Lawrence has thrown for 300+ yards in three of his last six games, including a career-high 368 against the Titans in Week 14. Travis Etienne ran for 32 yards in that game but has gone for 100+ in two of his last three games.

As for their defense, the Jags have held the last two opponents to just a field goal. Granted, those two teams were the struggling Jets and Texans, but the defense was clutch against the Cowboys in Week 15.

Betting Analysis

Jacksonville has all the momentum a team could ask for heading into a pivotal, must-win game. Based on how both teams have played in recent weeks, the Jags should win this game. But the Titans are getting quite a few playmakers back on defense, and the offense may be more dynamic with Joshua Dobbs at quarterback, even though he’s been on the roster for just a few weeks.

Dobbs threw for 232 yards and a touchdown with one pick against a solid Dallas defense without the benefit of a running game, which he’ll have this week.

Our Pick: Titans, +6
