BEST BET SAN FRANCISCO over Jacksonville by 8
Kudos to the Jaguars. They will be entering the playoffs this season for the first time in 10 years. And they’ll do so behind the 2nd-ranked overall defense in the league. Meanwhile, life in San Francisco has taken on a new look behind the services of new QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who improved to 5-0 SU and 4-0-1 ATS as a starter in this league with last week’s dramatic last-second win over Tennessee. Through it all, Jacksonville hits the unwelcomed highway with a 2-19 SU and 5-15-1 ATS log in the first of consecutive away games, as well as 1-9 ATS in games after scoring 40 or more points. And we didn’t even mention Jack’s 3-17 ATS mark against NFC opponents, or its 3-9 SU and 1-11 ATS record versus NFC West foes, including 0-5 SUATS away. Whew. With the Niners a nifty 4-1 ATS the last 5 games in this series, we cement it all with THE CLINCHER: The Jaguars are 0-8 ATS as road favorites of 3 or more points against opponents coming off a win.
