Miami Dolphins at Jacksonville Jaguars: 2014 Week 8 NFL Pick

Miami Dolphins (3-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars (1-6) I’m completely split on this one. On one hand, the Jaguars are in a bad spot, having to go to Cincinnati next week where they will almost certainly be double digit underdogs (the early line is 11). Teams are 40-81 ATS before being double digit underdogs since 2010. That’s because when you have a game coming up like that it generally...

CB Alan Ball out for Jaguars Sunday

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without one starting cornerback and possibly his backup for Sunday's home game against the Miami Dolphins. The team said Friday that Alan Ball will not play because of a biceps injury. The player who would replace Ball in the lineup, Dwayne Gratz, is questionable with tightness in his hip flexor. That may leave the Jaguars with a pair of 2013...

IDP Rankings, Week 8: Rest In Poz

2014 In-Season Accuracy: 59.3% (4th out of 20 Experts, 61.9% Highest, 43.9% Lowest).
