Betting market: I was curious as to how the public would bet this very, very low over/under, and at the time of writing, bets are split almost exactly 50-50 (see live data here).

The Jaguars are getting a steady 62% of bets and 56% of dollars so far and the line keeps moving in their favor. It took a few hours after opening for them to move from -6.5 to -7, then a few days for the line to move off the key number of -7 to -7.5.

Looks like a combination of casual and sharper bettors have decided that the Jags are a strong bet, even with Cody Kessler under center. Mark Gallant

Trends to know: This is the first time there has been a total of 36 or fewer points since the 2012 season. The over went 31-17 in games with totals of 36 or fewer points between  2008 and 2012. John Ewing
