The 23-year-old Robinson has made 15 touchdown catches in his last 17 games and 10 in his last 10 contests at home. Jacksonville has taken a step backward in the scoring department, entering Week 7 ranked 21st (20.2 points) after finishing 14th (23.5) in the league last season. Last time out for Jacksonville, they were a 17-16 winner as they battled the Bears on the road. The Jaguars covered in the match as a +2.5-point underdog, while 33 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.
