Jaguars vs. Ravens line prediction: Believe in Minshew magic

Dave Tuley, senior reporter at VSiN.com, is in his third season with the Post’s Bettor’s Guide. His handicapping pieces appear in VSiN’s online magazine, Point Spread Weekly.

Jacksonville Jaguars (+12.5) over BALTIMORE RAVENS

Yep, Lamar Jackson running back from the locker room and throwing a touchdown pass on fourth-and-5 against the Browns was amazing. And I hope that leads to more and more people betting them against the Jaguars this week with another overinflated line. I was glad I passed on the Jags against the Titans, but I saw enough magic from Gardner Minshew to be willing to back them in this spot. Besides, this could be a classic letdown spot for the Ravens, especially as their goal here is to get out with a win and not necessarily care if they win by two TDs.

NEW YORK GIANTS (+5.5) over Cleveland Browns

NEW YORK GIANTS (+5.5) over Cleveland Browns

These aren’t the same ol’ Browns, and it looks as if they earned some more bandwagon jumpers despite their Monday night loss to the Ravens — as this line was Browns -3.5, but has been bet up to -5.5 The Giants put in a clunker in their 26-7 loss to the Cardinals, but I think QB Daniel Jones was rushed back and should have a better showing in this game if healthy (if he’s out, we’re OK with Colt McCoy managing the game like he did in Seattle two weeks ago). Though the Browns are 9-4 SU, they’re just 5-8 ATS, so they’ve let lesser teams stick around such as non-covering wins against the Bengals (twice!), Texans and Jaguars.

Last Week: 1-1. Broncos (W), Jets (L).

2020 Season: 13-14-1.
