Betting market: Bettors clearly want no part of a team trying to decide between Blake Bortles and Cody Kessler at quarterback. Eighty-one percent of tickets and 83% of dollars wagered are laying the points with Philly.

One-sided Eagles money has moved this line from an opener of Philadelphia -2 to -3.5 (+100) at the time of writing (see live betting data here).

This number has hit +3.5 a few different times earlier in the week, and sharp bettors pounced on the Jags and the hook each instance to drive the line back to +3. PJ Walsh

Trends to know: The Jacksonville Jaguars have scored 14 points or fewer in three consecutive games heading into a Week 8 matchup in London.

According to our Bet Labs data, teams to score 14 points or fewer in three consecutive games since 2003 have performed well against the first-half spread at home, but have not held up well on the road or on a neutral site:

  • At home: 46-22-2 (+20.2 units)
  • On road/neutral: 18-33-1 (-16.3 units)

Since the last game the Jaguars played in London (Week 3 of last season), they are 3-6 against the first-half spread on the road, including 1-6 in their past seven first halves. Evan Abrams
