Jaguars vs. Rams Prediction and Pick
I would wait for more information on Stafford before betting this game. Ironically, if Stafford does play, I'd be uninterested in betting this game, and would look towards the under given the injuries to the quarterback, but if he sits, I'd look to bet Los Angeles at a reduced spread.
We have seen the Jaguars travel to face a backup quarterback when the team played the Seattle Seahawks, who were starting Geno Smith in place of Russell Wilson earlier this season, and lost 31-7.
Without Stafford, I still believe Aaron Donald and the Rams passing game can overpower the Jaguars' listless offense and score enough to win this one with ease.
In conclusion, I lean with the under if Stafford plays as they limit his exposure to getting more injured, and will look to play the Rams if he doesn't go, where we can get a reduced number on the better team.
LEAN: UNDER 47.5 if Stafford plays, Rams Spread if Stafford sits
