In one of the least anticipated games of the season, the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Tennessee Titans will be responsible for opening Week 14 of the NFL when they meet this Thursday night at the Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.
The Jaguars have been among the most disappointing teams of the season and are already with little chance of reaching the postseason. For its part, with a record of six wins and six lost, the Tennessee Titans still remain in the fight for a position in the Playoffs.
Difficult year for Jaguars
The Jacksonville Jaguars are presented to this game after ending a seven-game losing streak. Although it seems hard to believe, only a year ago the Jaguars finished the 2017 season with the best defense of the entire NFL. This year, the Jaguars defense has performed well below what was expected, despite showing signs of life last week against the Indianapolis Colts.
Overall, Nashville has always been a difficult place for the Jaguars. They have lost in their last four visits to Nissan Stadium and all by an average of six points per game. They have also lost in ten of their last 14 night matches and in 12 of their last 14 away games against opponents in their same division.
Titans at home
Throughout the season, the Tennessee Titans have been an excellent bet as a local. In fact, against the New York Jets last week, the Titans needed a win at home to stay alive in the tournament and achieved it with a 26-22 victory. Today, the Titans are in exactly the same situation as last week, needing a home win to keep dreaming of a postseason position. In total, the Titans have won in ten of their last 12 games at Nissan Stadium, including four wins in five home games this season.

Jaguars vs Titans Betting Prediction
Surely it will not be the most attractive Thursday night game in history, but in the case of the Titans, they could be playing all season in one game. In the end, I go with just the Titans to get the victory and stay in the race for a place in the Playoffs.
