Jacksonville Jaguars NFL Betting

The Jacksonville Jaguars pulled off the biggest outright upset in Week 1 of the NFL season, knocking off the Indianapolis Colts to ensure that the fans that were in attendance went home happy. Jacksonville was the favorite to finish with the league’s worst record in the preseason per the NFL futures odds, but it looks like these Jaguars have some bite. Gardner Minshew was very efficient in the opener, and the young, inexperienced defense looked better than almost anyone expected. Still, Jacksonville is a prohibitive underdog per the NFL betting odds on the road against the Tennessee Titans this week.

Jacksonville Jaguars Week 2 Matchup

Although Jacksonville picked up a victory in the first week of the season, there’s a lot for the Jaguars to work on ahead of their second game. While Minshew was accurate and moved the ball effectively, the gameplan against the Colts was very vanilla. Jacksonville largely threw underneath, and the passing game didn’t create big plays. That can be effective, but that will likely lead to Tennessee’s defensive backs sitting on underneath routes and playing closer to the line.

The Jaguars do look to have a pair of up and coming receivers in D.J. Chark Jr. and Laviska Shenault Jr. Chark was the team’s top receiver last year, and Shenault looked pretty sharp in his first game as a rookie. The latter was considered a first-round pick by many before the 2019 season started at Colorado, but injuries and the strongest receiver class ever led to Shenault dropping into the second round.

Tennessee will be on a short week after playing the final game of Week 1. The Titans outlasted the Broncos in Denver to win their opener, but it wasn’t a pretty game. Their defense carried the day, holding Denver to just 323 yards of offense and 14 points.

Two of the top safeties in the league will look to make things difficult for Minshew. Kevin Byard and Kenny Vaccaro can do it all, confusing young quarterbacks with their disguised coverage responsibilities, and the run front is solid too. Jadeveon Clowney will look to make more of an impact after some more time with the team as well.

Derrick Henry carried the ball 31 times on Monday night, and the Titans will feed their workhorse back as much as they can against the Jaguars. Jacksonville did a good job of stopping the run against Indianapolis, but Henry is the kind of heavy-duty back that grinds you down over the course of the game. He set the national career high school rushing record at nearby Yulee HS, so Henry will want to show out against the team of his youth.

Jacksonville Jaguars Week 1 Recap

It’s fun to watch a young team band together to overcome the odds. Indianapolis was one of the favorites in NFL Survivor Pools in the week leading up to this game, but Jacksonville scraped out a win by not turning the ball over and doing just enough in all three phases of the game.

Jacksonville wasn’t great on offense last week, but the Jaguars did just enough. It all started with Minshew. He didn’t make any mistakes throughout the afternoon, completing 19 of 20 passes for 173 yards and three touchdowns. Minshew could have completed all 20 of his passes were it not for a Laviska Shenault Jr. drop, but he still set a record for highest completion percentage in Week 1.

Rookie James Robinson had a solid afternoon as Jacksonville’s primary running back, averaging 3.9 YPC in his debut. There were concerns about the ground game without Leonard Fournette toting the rock, but Robinson proved he could move the chains against a solid front seven and even caught a 28-yard pass out of the backfield.

The defense forced turnovers when it needed to as well, but the Colts outgained the Jaguars by over 200 total yards. Philip Rivers had a field day against this secondary, yet two costly interceptions led to 10 points for the Jags, and those scores proved to be decisive.
