Week 18 of the 2022 NFL season features a pair of Saturday matchups, including a collision for the AFC South crown as the Tennessee Titans pay a visit to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Titans' downward spiral continued on Thursday with a 27-13 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, marking Tennessee's sixth straight defeat. On the other hand, the Jaguars have done nothing but win lately with victories in five of their last six games.

Can the Titans stop the bleeding to win their third consecutive AFC South title? Or will the Jaguars pull out a win at home to finish atop the division for the first time since 2017?

Titans vs Jaguars Prediction & Pick

The Titans are in horrific shape right now and even though they impressed at times this year, they're a shell of their former selves.

Jacksonville already defeated Tennessee, 36-22, back in Week 14. Since then, the Titans have continued to spiral (mainly due to Ryan Tannehill's season-ending injury), averaging just 13.7 points (third-worst) and 291.0 total yards (ninth-worst) over their last three games.

Meanwhile, the Jaguars' offense has been hot with at least 30 points in three of their last four games. I expect the offense to keep rolling after Trevor Lawrence torched Tennessee for 368 passing yards and a trio of touchdowns just a few weeks ago.

With the Titans looking like they've forgotten how to play football, expect the Jaguars to be on top of the AFC South when the dust settles.

Final Score Prediction: Jaguars: 24 | Titans: 17

Titans vs Jaguars Betting Trends

- Tennessee is 0-5-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last six games.
- Jacksonville is 5-1 straight up in its last six games.
- The total has hit the under in five of Tennessee's last seven road games.
- The total has hit the over in four of Jacksonville's last six games against Tennessee.

Titans vs Jaguars Best Bet

With the way the Titans have been playing lately, I'm confident the Jaguars can cover the 6.5-point spread. Tennessee is 0-5-1 ATS during its six-game skid, not covering the spread since Nov. 17. Meanwhile, Jacksonville is 5-1 ATS in its most recent six outings, even covering in four of its last five games against fellow AFC teams.

Taking into account that the Titans also have a minus-12.5 average scoring margin in their last six games, the Jaguars should be able to win this one by at least a touchdown.

Bet: Jaguars -6.5 (-105)
