Why the Cardinals can cover the spread

The Cardinals penetrated Houston's tough defense in Week 10 and came away with the 27-24 win, handing the Texans their franchise-record seventh consecutive loss in the process. That gives Arizona some extra momentum heading into its matchup with the lowly Jaguars this week.

Why the Jaguars can cover the spread

The Jaguars just snapped a 13-game losing streak stretching back to last season, so they might have a little more confidence going into Week 11 than they did at this time last week. The Jaguars forced four turnovers against the Titans last time out and actually managed to put 29 points on the board.

Smart pick

The Cardinals have been competitive all season, now they travel cross country, and they're spotting the home team a hefty number of points. Expect the Cardinals to roll and for the Jags to roll back to normal. The trends listed below also point to some solid UNDER trends for totals bettors.


  • Arizona is 1-10 SU in its last 11 games on the road.
  • Jacksonville is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games at home.
  • Cardinals Under is 8-1 past nine games as road favorites.
  • Jaguars played seven straight UNDERs when home dog.
