WHAT THE EXPERTS HAVE TO SAY

“The books are going to be rooting hard for Jacksonville Monday after they took a bath with the Saints on Sunday night. All the public money has come in on Baltimore as a road favorite. Even the wiseguyss—who always look for ‘value’—have been reluctant to get involved with the Jaguars so far. If we start seeing -10.5's and -11's later in the day—and I think we will—that lack of wiseguy involvement on Jacksonville could change.”

“Another game tonight pitting one of the elite teams in the AFC against a team vastly undermanned. After watching the Colts get outclassed Sunday night we can only hope it’s not more of the same again this evening. [Blaine] Gabbert will definitely be tested, but the ability for Jacksonville to cover (win would be a bonus) hinges on the defense's ability to get stops and force turnovers. I know we'll [Caesars Entertainment] be big fans of the teal and black throughout our sportsbooks.”
