Cowboys vs Jaguars Prediction & Pick

A 98-yard touchdown drive that ended with only seconds left on the game clock was the difference between a win and a loss for Dallas last week. QB Dak Prescott has now racked up 6 touchdowns compared to 5 interceptions over the last three contests. He needs to clean things up in Week 15.

The good news for Dak is that Jacksonville has posted the third-worst pass defense DVOA rating in the NFL and allows a whopping 253.3 passing yards per game this season (No. 28 in NFL). The Jags have also given up 21 passing touchdowns, which is tied for the fifth-highest total in the league.

Dallas has won each of its last nine games in December and I see that streak reaching 10 on Sunday.

Final Score Prediction: Cowboys: 31 | Jaguars: 21

Both of these offenses are heating up down the stretch.

Both the Cowboys and Jaguars are averaging over 5.5 yards per play during that same span as well.

Backing the over is the move to make here. The total has hit the over in five of Dallas' last six games overall and in each of its last five games against Jacksonville. The over has also cashed in six of the Jaguars' last eight games as an underdog. Trust the trends here and root for touchdowns on Sunday.
