NFL picks and predictions, Week 8: 49ers vs. Jaguars 2013

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Jaguars are big underdogs yet again as they get set to host the 49ers on Sunday. Guess who experts think is going to win this week.

Assuming you've watched at least a week's worth of NFL football this season, are you really itching to know who experts believe will win Sunday's matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Jacksonville Jaguars? The 49ers are 17.5-point favorites, and for good reason.

Every one of the various talking heads at Yahoo! SportsCBS Sports and ESPN are taking the Niners to win. Even against the spread, experts aren't giving the Jags much of a chance. Just two of the eight pundits at CBS are betting on Jacksonville to cover.

The Jaguars are winless this season, and the 49ers are surging after some early-season bumps. One team is eying another run to the Super Bowl, and the other a winless season and the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Suffice it to say, Jacksonville will have scored the upset of the 2013 season if it can knock off San Francisco on Sunday.
