Reason for Pittsburgh Steelers vs Jacksonville Jaguars Betting tips

The Jaguars survived the Snooze Bowl last week as they beat the Buffalo Bills in the first playoff game of the NFL postseason. It had to be a split emotional game for Jags fans, as the defense looked incredible, as the Jags allowed only three points and under 150 yards through the air.

But their offense looked abysmal. RB Leonard Fournette struggled mightily to get anything going on the ground, and QB Blake Bortles was nothing short of embarrassing. Bortles was struggling to even hit his check downs, and ended up with more rushing yards than passing yards. If he plays anything like he did last week, then the Steelers game will be over after the coin flip.

Last week was a great week for the Steelers, as they rested up for this bout. It especially helped the best WR in the league, Antonio Brown, as he looks to have fully recovered from his calf injury he picked up when they faced New England a few weeks ago.

This will be a revenge game for the Steelers, as they look to avenge their Week 5 loss in which QB Ben Roethlisberger threw 5 interceptions. Big Ben will have to protect the ball if they want to win this week, as the Jaguars defense is cementing itself as one of the best in recent years. Their pass rush, led by DE Calais Campbell, led the NFL in sacks. And their secondary features the best tandem CB duo in the league in Jalen Ramsey and AJ Bouye. It is uncertain whether Ramsey will follow Brown all game or if he and Bouye will split time guarding him.

We are expecting the Steelers to take care of business because of the poor Jacksonville offense. The Jags won’t be able to move the ball much on the road, which will strain their defense. The best way to beat a good defense is to keep them on the field, because although these are some of the best athletes in the world, fatigue is a real worry. Think of great defenses from last year like the Giants and Broncos, and see how this year they struggled because they were on the field for most of the game. The Steelers have a great balanced attack and a good enough offensive line to check with Jacksonville’s defense.

We are recommending the Steelers to cover the point spread and for them to keep the Jaguars under their point total. Pittsburgh’s offense has the talent to break through the Jags defense, especially since they are going to be on the field for most of the game. As for a touchdown scorer, we like TE Jesse James to find the endzone at great odds. He has built trust with Ben Roethlisberger in the second half of this season, and with all the attention going to Bell, Brown, and Smith-Schuster, we can see James getting some chances in the redzone.
