NFL odds Week 16, Patriots vs. Jaguars: Underdogs, again

New, comments

The Jacksonville Jaguars are once again big underdogs at home.

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars head back home to EverBank Field for their final home game of the 2012 season. Unfortunately for Jaguars fans, the team is facing the New England Patriots, a team coming off a tough loss last week and a team with Tom Brady at the helm.

The Jaguars are once again double-digit underdogs heading into Sunday, the third time they've been double-digit underdogs on the season. Currently, the line is set a +14.5 for the Jaguars, meaning the Patriots are favored on the road by three scores.

I'm not sure the Jaguars cover in this matchup, despite the fact that they've covered nearly every massive line this season, but the Patriots are a team who can score at will and the Jaguars are a team who can't stop anyone. Not only that, but the Jaguars offense has subsequently scored less points each week since Chad Henne became the quarterback. That's not necessarily a shot at Henne, just a trend of what's happened the past few weeks.

Here's what OddsShark has to say about the game:

OddsShark Staff - The New England Patriots are 8-1 SU and 6-3 ATS in their last nine games against the Jacksonville Jaguars and will be a heavy favorite to add another win this Sunday when they visit the Jags at EverBank Field. Jacksonville is 1-6 SU and ATS at home this season. New England is 15-4 SU and 14-3-2 ATS in its last 19 games on the road. The total has gone OVER in 11 of New England's last 12 games.
