Jaguars vs. Rams 2013 picks and predictions: Both squads looking to turnaround their seasons

Sam Greenwood

The NFL experts around the web are picking the winner of the Week 5 game between the Rams and Jaguars.

The first quarter of the season has been pretty rough for the Rams and Jaguars, who clash in Week 5. The Rams have gone from promising to pitiful on defense over the last few weeks, and the Jaguars have failed get anything going on either side of the ball over the first four games of the season. With Jacksonville traveling to St. Louis, both squads have a very good shot of turning around their seasons.

The Jaguars lack of success has hurt their status in the odds department, as the Rams are an 11.5-point favorite at home in Week 5. For three of the eight analysts for CBS Sports, that spread is way too high, but the other five believe that the Rams can cover. However, when picking straight up, all eight panelists agree that the Rams will win the game. Yahoo Sports' two-man panel also believes the Rams beat the Jaguars at home.

The SB Nation panel of five is also in favor of the Rams. Although, Ryan Van Bibber is the one-man wolf pack that chose the Jaguars to win the game in an upset.

The Rams will host the Jaguars on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
