Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Jaguars have lost 13 straight games and may be playing without starting RB James Robinson this week. In Jacksonville’s revolving-door quarterback rotation, it doesn’t matter who they place under center. Gardner Minshew is back in the saddle again, but the Jaguars are 0-6 ATS in his last six starts. Jacksonville runs into a surging Chicago team here, and the Bears are projecting to steamroll the Jags on their own turf. The Bears have won two straight, and are eyeballing a playoff spot behind the resurgence of QB Mitchell Trubisky and RB David Montgomery. The Jaguars’ rushing defense has been getting killed in recent weeks, and the Bears have tallied the second-most ground yardage over the last three games. This is a recipe for disaster if you plan on betting on Jacksonville. The favorite is 4-1 ATS over the last five meetings between the Jaguars and Bears, and Chicago is peaking right now. Da Bears cover. Bears 37, Jaguars 20
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
The Chicago Bears still have a chance to grab a playoff spot, and they shouldn’t have many problems beating the 1-13 Jacksonville Jaguars.
Mitchell Trubisky has been playing well enough to remain under center in place of Nick Foles. RB David Montgomery is on the verge of a 1000-yard season.
The Bears average 22.5 points per game and the total has gone under in their last five games against an opponent from the AFC.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are already thinking about next season. Gardner Minshew will remain under center for the rest of the season, and RB James Robinson will keep carrying the load from the backfield.
Jacksonville averages 19.6 points per game (fourth worst in the league) and the total has gone under in four of their last six games against an opponent from the NFC North.
Go under in what could be a close one.
