AFC Championship Consensus
It’s early in the betting cycle but it is obvious that the Patriots are going to get all of the love from the betting public. Early returns suggest that over 63 percent of the money coming in on this game is on Tom Brady and the Patriots to return to the Super bowl. That could explain the line movement in this game as the early line jumped two points. That would also indicate that big money is on the game as well and that money is on the Patriots.
Jaguars vs Patriots Predictions
I get it. The Patriots are good. In fact they are great. They have Hall Of Fame people all over the field. But the Patriots are going through the motions. They needed an early Titans score to wake this team up. Tom Brady was sloppy and they have not played a defense that is as good as the Jags. The Patriots also have two assistant coaches that are prepping for another job in the league and they could even be losing their head coach.
Everyone assumes the Patriots will win in a blowout, because that is what they always do, but that is naïve. The Jaguars can run the ball against any team in the league. They have an incredible defense that can get after the quarterback and will give Brady fits. Blake Bortles does just fine when he has a lead and a solid running game which is exactly what he will have against the Patriots.
The Jaguars not only cover this spread, but they win the game and go to the Super Bowl. Remember, you heard it here first.
