NFL odds and lines 2013: Jaguars vs. Rams

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Rams have lost three straight games by large margins, yet are still 12.5-point favorites against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5.

The St. Louis Rams have allowed at least 30 points in each of the last three weeks and lost three straight by a combined 55 points, yet are still 12.5-point favorites against the Jacksonville Jaguarsaccording to OddsShark.

While the Rams have certainly been bad as of late, the Jaguars have undoubtedly been worse. A 10-point loss to the Oakland Raiders in Week 2 was the closest they've come to victory and the team lost by a combined 88 points in the other three matchups.

With the fewest points scored and the third most points allowed, the Jaguars haven't come close to winning a game or even cover a spread.

Still, the Rams have been pretty bad themselves, ranking in the bottom 10 in both offense and defense. With the return of Justin Blackmon to the lineup for the Jaguars after a four-game suspension, it will only take a halfway mediocre performance from the Jaguars offense to cover such a large spread.
