Redskins-Jaguars Spread

The Redskins-Jaguars spread moved up a half point from where it opened at -6.5 in favor of Jacksonville, a team still in the Playoffs hunt at 8-6.

The key for Jacksonville is whether Maurice Jones-Drew, the NFL's second-leading rusher with 1,324 yards, ends up playing Sunday after being downgraded to doubtful on Friday.  Jay Glazer has already suggested it would take a “miracle” for Jones-Drew to play on Sunday. 

Perhaps it is this news that has prompted the betting public to start backing Washington somewhat heavy on the spread.  70 percent of those betting the spread were on the Redskins as of late Saturday night.  65 percent of those betting the money line were on the Redskins.  There was even action on the total betting which featured an OVER/UNDER of 46.

Let’s look at some of the important trends for the Redskins-Jaguars game.



The Redskins are 6-2-1 Against The Spread in their last 9 games as a road underdog.

The Redskins are 9-4-2 ATS in their last 15 games following a Straight Up loss.

The Jaguars are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite.

The Jaguars are 4-0 ATS vs. a team with a losing record.

The Jaguars are just 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games as a home favorite of 3.5-10.0.

Jacksonville is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

The Jaguars are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
