Seahawks Providing Plenty Of Underdog Value vs Jaguars

The Philadelphia Eagles have been the class of the NFC so far in 2017, but the Seattle Seahawks reasserted their dominance by beating the Eagles at home 24-10 in Week 13. The Seahawks hit the road to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.

Xbet opened the Seahawks as 3-point road underdogs with a total of 39.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Seahawks are 6-0 SU in their last six games after winning as an underdog.
  • The Jaguars are 6-19 SU in their last 25 games in December.
  • The Jaguars are 4-18 ATS in their last 22 games in the late afternoon.

Yes, you read that correctly. The Seahawks are field-goal underdogs against the Jacksonville Jaguars. This is the world we live in now. The Jags are vastly improved this season and possess one of the best defenses in the league, but they’ve also lost to the Arizona Cardinals, Tennessee Titans and New York Jets.

Part of the reason why the Seahawks are underdogs in this game is undoubtedly due to them being a West Coast team, but they’ve already performed well out east. The Seattle offense is about to get a boost with running back Chris Carson set to return to the club. The rookie grabbed the starting job early this season before going down with a leg injury.

Blake Bortles has received a fair amount of criticism in his young NFL career, but he’s risen to the occasion of late and a big reason for that is his ability to not turn the ball over. Bortles had a very solid game in Week 13 as he completed 26 of 35 passes for 309 yards with two touchdowns and no picks.

Seattle hasn’t had a hard time dispatching the Jaguars in recent years. In the Seahawks’ last five vs Jacksonville, they’re 4-1 SU and ATS.
