The Jaguars and Panthers lost their starting quarterbacks in the first four weeks of the season, but both are coming off back-to-back wins as well. With the number sitting at 41 points, what is the best play for the total?

Jacksonville Jaguars Fantasy Spin

Jaguars owner Shad Khan said “the best thing” for the team is to keep Jalen Ramsey. The Jaguars reportedly have turned down an offer that included two first-round picks and don’t look to be in any hurry to cave into Ramsey’s trade demands. Ramsey missed practice last week for the birth of his daughter and missed last week’s game with a back injury, so he’s best viewed as questionable for Week 5’s matchup with the Panthers.

Carolina Panthers Fantasy Spin

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said Kyle Allen will start against the Jaguars in Week 5. This was fully expected as Cam Newton remains without a hard timeline to return. Allen’s three strip-sacks were an issue in Carolina’s win over the Texans Sunday, but his ability to create on the fly is still the Panthers’ best option under center until Newton comes back in ’19 (which isn’t guaranteed). At this point Allen should be looked to as Carolina’s presumed starter until further notice.

NFL Betting Trends

Jacksonville

The under is 6-2 in the Jaguars’ last eight games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.

Carolina

The over is 5-2 in the Panthers’ last seven games after allowing less than 150 yards passing in their previous game.

Prediction

The under is 5-2 in the Jaguars’ last seven games overall and is 4-1 in their last five games played in the month of October. While Gardner Minshew and Allen have done a great job the past two weeks in leading their teams to respective victories, it’s not as if Jacksonville and Carolina lit up the scoreboard last week. While the total is very low, I still feel good about taking the under in a potential defensive struggle.
