Jaguars open as 4-point underdogs to Browns

New, comments

For the third straight week in a row, Vegas is predicting a close game for the Jaguars.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday and if Vegas is right (again) we're in for yet another close game.

According to OddsShark.com, the Jaguars opened as just four-point underdogs to the Browns. That's the third week in a row that the Jaguars will be predicted to lose by less than one possession.

I'm not going to argue the people in Vegas because they certainly know what they're doing. Recently, OddsShark has gotten these predictions pretty close. They were pegged as seven-point underdogs to the Pittsburgh Steelers and lost 17-9, and six-point underdogs to the Tennessee Titans and lost 16-14.

The over/under is also set at 45 points, which means that if Vegas is absolutely right the final score will be somewhere in the neighborhood of the Jaguars losing 25-20 on Sunday.

Hey, at least it's not another blowout, right?
