Similar to AFC South rival Tennessee, the Jaguars have one of the most promising young offenses in the conference. After a disastrous rookie year, quarterback Blake Bortles shook off the whispers that he might have been a bust with the best passing season in Jacksonville history. Bortles set franchise records for most passing touchdowns (35), yards (4,428), pass attempts (606) and threw a touchdown strike in 15 of the 16 games in the 2015-16 season. Bortles is struggling once again, however.

How To Win At Jacksonville Jaguars Betting
The Jaguars were expecting great things from Bortles after his 2015 season. However, he has once again regressed and everyone is wondering in Jacksonville if he’ll ever consistently live up to the hype associated with a first overall draft pick. Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns, Jacksonville’s star receivers, didn’t help Bortles much in 2016. Or was it Bortles who didn’t help his receivers. Either way, the numbers tell a tale.
Robinson and Hurns combined for 2,431 yards receiving in 2015. Compare that with 1,360 yards in 2016 and you have one of the team’s biggest issues. Those two need to play like they did in 2015 for the Jaguars to have any chance of making the playoffs. Their performances, however, are predicated on how well Bortles plays. If he continues to stink it up, look for the Jaguars to once again be bottom feeders of the AFC South.
The Jaguars were shockingly bad in 2016, finishing the season with a 3-13 record. Every other AFC South team finished with at least eight wins. You can call the Jaguars the battering ram of the division. They only won one game on the road and two at home.
Surprisingly, the Jaguars won two of their three games against division opponents. Two wins out of six against AFC South teams doesn’t sound brilliant but it’s pretty good when you compare it to their overall record. The Titans also finished with a 2-4 record against divisional opponents.
The Jags scored 19.9 points per game in 2016, the 25th best average in the NFL. Those numbers are a sure-fire way to miss the playoffs. Compounding their misery, the Jags allowed 25 points per game, the eighth most in the league. You can’t hope to finish anywhere near the playoff picture being poor on both sides of the ball.
Coming seasons don’t look much better for the Jags. Avoid backing them in the futures market and be wary of putting money down on the Jags in any situtation unless Bortles can get his act together.
