Of all of the games on the Sunday 12/16 Week 15 NFL betting schedule, one of my favorite is the clash between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Miami Dolphins. Join me for my tips for this 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff that can be seen on CBS.
Jacksonville Jaguars (2-11, 6-7 ATS) +7.5
Miami Dolphins (5-8, 6-7 ATS) -7.5
Just because you’ve been playing competitive ball against some good teams does most certainly not mean that you should be laying more than a touchdown under any circumstance against a team that has been a lot better than a 2-11 record suggests this year. Unfortunately for the oddsmakers, they just haven’t figured that part of this out.
The Jags have at least been trying hard to stay in games, and I urge you to remember that this game is the Super Bowl to QB Chad Henne. He would love nothing more than to come back to South Beach and stick it to the team that cut him. WR Cecil Shorts will be back in the fold, which gives Jacksonville a deep threat to get the ball to as well.
I’m going to stick with a teaser in this one, knowing that I’m going to be getting just a stupid amount of points with the Jaguars against a team that has only won two games all year by more than four points. Miami might win it, but if it does, it isn’t going to be with more than 24 points or so on the board in all likelihood. If that’s the case, I really like my chances of this one coming in, as two professional teams should be getting to at least 31 combined points a whole heck of a lot more often than not. This is the game that pro bettors thrive on from a teasing standpoint.
