The Atlanta Falcons and Jacksonville Jaguars will face off at Wembley Stadium on Sunday afternoon (14:30), with both teams looking to respond to defeat.

Both these offenses failed to fire in Week Three and look a couple of steps behind their defensive units, heading into the first London game of the season.

The Jaguars’ games in London tend to be low-scoring – the last five have produced 43 points or less – and that trend may continue at Wembley.

Jaguars vs Falcons Prediction

  • Under 42.5 points @ EVS
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (-2.5) @ 4/5

Team News

Wide receiver Jamal Agnew was a limited participant in practice this week for the Jaguars due to a quad injury, while Zay Jones and Devin Cloud did not feature at all.

Cordarrelle Patterson, who scored nine touchdowns last season, is close to making his season debut for the Falcons and it could come in London. Wide receiver Josh Ali was downgraded to not practicing on Thursday, as he continues to deal with an ankle injury.

Under 42.5 points @ EVS

As mentioned above, Jaguars’ last five games in London have produced 43 points or less, and I’m expecting that trend to continue here, especially as both offenses have been poor in recent weeks.

Bijan Robinson has stood out as one of the early Offensive Rookie of the Year favourites for the Falcons, and both Travis Etienne and Calvin Ridley have been bright sparks for the Jags, but neither side have been firing on all cylinders.

The Falcons scored just six points last week and the Jags have managed 26 in total across their last two games, so I’m backing the under.

Jacksonville Jaguars (-2.5) @ 4/5

Given how poorly the Jags performed at EverBank Stadium in Jacksonville the last two weeks, they’re eager to get away and possibly find better results roughly 4,300 miles from home – a chance to reset.

The Jags have more experience of playing in London and that could prove pivotal, when it comes to the result of this game.

I’m confident that the Jags can bounce back from a disappointing loss last week, with their first win at Wembley since 2017 and cover the spread too. I think Trevor Lawrence has improved in his performances but has been let down by his offensive line.

However, I think he can lead the Jags to victory here and cover the spread.
