The AFC South was the most competitive division in the NFL in 2007 and football bettors can view this AFC South battle regionally on CBS, kick-off from LP Field is set for 1:00 PM. HC Jack Del Rio has every reason to believe that this is finally the year his Jaguars can kick the door down and reach the Super Bowl.
Last year, he had one of the best teams in the league, but because they share a division with Indianapolis, were stuck going on the road for the playoffs once again. Football betting fans didn’t seem to mind, though. The Jags tied for the third best mark in the league against the NFL betting line at 11-5 in the regular season.
The biggest problem Jacksonville had last year was at the defensive end position. They locked that up by drafting defensive ends Derrick Harvey and Quinton Groves with their first two selections in the draft, though Harvey won’t be expected to make an immediate impact since he just got into camp last week.
HC Jeff Fischer is the longest tenured coach in the NFL, and with good reason. Last year, he led his Titans to a 10-6 mark and a playoff birth, in spite of the fact that they play in the hardest division in the NFL. The key to returning to the playoffs in ’08 will be the play of QB Vince Young.
There’s no doubt that Young is a winner, but he can’t expect to only throw nine touchdown passes again this year if the Titans plan on winning games. The lack of offense cost NFL betting followers several opportunities at cashing ‘over’ tickets in Titans games in ’07.
Tennessee had the worst mark in the NFL against the football betting ‘total’, going 5-10-1 towards the ‘over’. Sports-Gambling.com now finds the Jaguars at (-3) +100 in this divisional match-up, with the ‘total’ coming in at 37.
