NFL odds Week 17, Jaguars vs. Titans: Jacksonville underdogs again

The Jaguars have been underdogs in every game this season and once again find themselves the underdogs in the 2012 finale.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have been underdogs in every game in the 2012 season and complete the season sweep heading into Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Currently, the Jaguars are +4 heading to Nashville. The Jaguars beat the Titans at EverBank Field in their first meeting, but both teams look a bit different heading into the 2012 season finale.

For the Jaguars, they'll be without wide receiver Cecil Shorts III, their best offensive player in 2012. Shorts had over 100 yards and a touchdown (59-yards) in the two team's first meeting. With Shorts out of the lineup, the Jaguars are going to have to look for their other passing targets and hope to protect Chad Henne better than the team did in the first meeting.

In the game earlier in the year, the Jaguars offensive line gave up 7 sacks and 13 quarterback hits. If the Jaguars can't keep Chad Henne upright, it might be another long day for the offense.

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

The Jacksonville Jaguars are 4-0 ATS and 3-1 SU in their last four games against the Tennessee Titans and will be looking for just their third win of the season this Sunday when they visit the Titans at LP Field. Jacksonville is 2-13 SU and 7-8 ATS in 2012. Tennessee is 5-10 both SU and ATS on the season. The total has gone UNDER in five of the last six games between these two AFC South rivals.
