Jacksonville at St. Louis
Sunday 10/30 01:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Jacksonville -3 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: LOSS
Said it all season - St. Louis isn't very good. As a result, this overrated club is 2-5 ATS so far this year. They beat New Orleans last week thanks in part to the worst call by the Zebras in recent memory (you've all seen it a dozen times on ESPN by now). New Orleans for goodness sake! The final score in that game was misleading as the Rams were losing for much of it. Prior to last week, they got spanked by Indianapolis, Seattle and the Giants. All very good teams you say. Yes! But, Jacksonville is right there. My power ratings tell me that Jacksonville is a top-5 team - maybe top 3. They are almost as underrated as the San Diego Chargers. Jacksonville beat Cincinnati and Pittsburgh back-to-back before their bye last week! And, they beat a very good Seattle team in week 1 and held Indianapolis to 10 points in week two. Their only two losses came to Indy and Denver - two playoff teams. Their fifth ranked defense should have success this weekend against St. Louis whether Bulger or Martin gets the start and whether or not Torry Holt goes. Take the top caliber team against the overrated one for two stars.
