There are a lot of good games on tap this week. This is not one of them, at least not in the traditional sense of two playoff contenders slugging it out for postseason positioning. The Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets are somewhat evenly matched, at least. When it comes to points scored, the Jaguars have the league’s worst offense, and the Jets have the league’s worst defense. Flip it around, and the Jaguars have the 27th ranked defense, while the Jets have the NFL’s 27th ranked offense. This might be one of the ugliest games of the season, and that’s part of what makes it kind of appealing in a weird, twisted way. Kickoff for this must-see contest is at 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday.
Here, we’ll take a look at our picks for best bets for the Jaguars-Jets matchup in Week 16 of the NFL season. Odds come via DraftKings Sportsbook.

Our picks for Jaguars vs. Jets
Pick against the spread: Jets to win
The Jaguars have yet to win a road game this season. They lost to the Texans last week, so what else do you really need to know here? As similar as these two teams are, the Jets might look more like the ‘72 Dolphins for 60 minutes in this one.
Over/under: Over 41.5
Shootout, slop fest, whatever you want to call it ... eight of Jacksonville’s last nine game have gone under, but without much defense on either side here, it shouldn’t be a stretch for either team to put up a few more points than usual.
