Detroit at Jacksonville

1.5 units on Detroit +113 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.2) RESULT: WIN
The young Jaguars are rebuilding and retooling (again). But they looked like the old Jaguars last week, getting shut down at the NY Giants in a 23-12 defeat. The same old problems were visible: the O-line allowed three sacks, the offense had 244 yards, and the ground game had 2.4 yards per carry. Now they face a deep and talented Detroit team that has a strong QB rotation with Matt Stafford, Dan Orlovsky and Kellen Moore. Stafford has been precise through two exhibitions, going 8-for-10, with two incompletions that were catchable. Jacksonville coach Gus Bradley has mixed up having the Jaguars practicing in full pads and they've changed their offensive line yet again, naming Stefen Wisniewski as the starting center this week. The Lions are 23-6 SU and 20-8-1 ATS in their last 29 preseason games and a year ago they beat Jacksonville in week three getting six sacks on defense and had the edge in rushing yards 178-85. The Jags ran for 3.4 ypc, the Lions 6.6, and Detroit QBs were 21-of-29 for 190 yards, while the Jaguars offense turned it over twice. Take Detroit on the moneyline.
