Week 16 NFL picks for Jets vs. Jaguars
Before you tune in to Sunday's Jets vs. Jaguars game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,000 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters Week 16 of the 2021 season on an incredible 133-96 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For Jets vs. Jaguars, the model predicts that the Jets cover the spread at home. Even in the Jets' battered and infected state, the Jaguars have proven over and over again this season that no team is incapable of winning against them. Last week at home against the Houston Texans, in the first game following Urban Meyer's dismissal, the Jaguars lost for the second time this season to a team whose roster is arguably in worse shape than theirs.
Both teams' rookie first round quarterbacks have struggled this season, but the Jets have been able to put points on the board. The Jaguars have only scored 23 points over the last three weeks, while the Jets scored 24 points in their Week 15 loss to the Miami Dolphins. Jags quarterback Trevor Lawrence hasn't shown much improvement this season, but if he can't break out this week, it will be a disappointment. Two of the Jets' starting defensive backs, cornerback Bryce Hall (illness/non-COVID) and Elijah Riley (concussion) haven't practiced this week. Starting safety Ashtyn Davis is among those on the team's COVID-reserve list, and three other defensive backs were already on injured reserve heading into the game.
The SportsLine model predicts that Lawrence will be able to move the ball to the tune of 260 yards with at least a touchdown, but it won't be enough for the hapless Jaguars. Zach Wilson is projected to do enough to give the Jets a chance to win, and the Jets cover in over 50 percent of simulations.
