Scott Spreitzer's Jaguars vs. Steelers Free Pick

I’m recommending a play on the Jacksonville Jaguars plus the points on Sunday.
Give the Jags credit, not many expected a 2-2 SU record at this point of the season and they’re an OT loss from 3-1.
Teams haven’t thrown for big yardage against Jacksonville, they’re giving teams the run, while attempting to take away big gains through the air.
In fact, Jax ranks #1 in the NFL in yards passing allowed per game. Pittsburgh has averaged just 95 yards rushing per game. They’ll likely be able to run against Jacksonville, but that speeds up the contest. The Jags have churned out a solid ground game themselves, averaging 148.8 yards per game, the second best rushing mark in the league.
Teams are running the ball well against the Steelers, averaging 113 yards per contest and we expect success from the Jaguars ground attack, keeping this one close.
Pittsburgh is averaging less than 23 ppg and they’re off three road games in four weeks, including last week’s rivalry affair in Baltimore with a game against Kansas City up next. The Jags have covered four of their last five on the road and five of their last seven games, overall.
We’re recommending a play on the Jaguars plus the points.
Thanks & GL!
