Jacksonville Jaguars NFL Week 13 Betting Lines

Jacksonville Jaguars NFL Betting

Having logged wins in two of their last three games, can it be assumed the Jacksonville Jaguars are now dark horses to snag a playoff bid? It’s not as crazy as it sounds with seven wins the minimum amount needed to seal the deal right now. It’s even conceivable that the AFC South title is a possibility with it three games out and two games against the Tennessee Titans remaining on the docket. But before Doug Pederson’s troops can set their sights on bigger game, it must first dispose of a feisty pride of Detroit Lions in non-conference play and tally just its second win of the season playing away from TIAA Bank Field. It’s early, but the betting market doesn’t look to be bullish on the road win coming to fruition.

On Sunday, December 4, 2022, the Jacksonville Jaguars will hit the road looking to log back-to-back wins against the Detroit Lions. FOX will carry the game live from Ford Field at 1 p.m. ET.

Jacksonville Jaguars Week 13 Matchup

The lookahead lines had the Jaguars catching 1-point on the road with the total lined at 49.5. Though Detroit has garnered 71 percent of the bets and over 90 percent of the money per early week wagering reports, the online sportsbook has been remiss to move the line at all. It remains +1 even though other shops have moved to +1.5 and +2. Jacksonville clocks in a wretched 1-9 SU and 2-8 versus the closing NFL odds the last 10 times it was dogged on the road. It failed to win or cover in the two spots it was installed up to a 3-point underdog dropping 28-22 and 34-27 decisions to Washington and Indianapolis respectively. Both games played to high scorers which make the movement to the over for this contest not much of a surprise. It’s already up to 52 with a high majority of the action and handle expecting both teams to exchange scores all game long.

It’s widely known that Detroit owns one of the worst overall defenses in the league. It ranks No. 29 against the pass and No. 30 against the run. On top of all that, it’s sub 30 percent pressure rate also ranks amongst the bottom third of the league (No. 25). So the Lions can’t stop the run, can’t stop the pass, and gets limited pressure on opposing quarterbacks. That should be music to Trevor Lawrence’s ears with him being the ringleader of an above average offensive attack that’s seemingly gotten better the deeper we get into the NFL betting season. Fresh off throwing for his highest yardage total of the season, the former Clemson standout looks to be in line for another fantastic showing!

Whether it ultimately translates into a win or not will ultimately depend on the defense’s ability to keep Jared Goff and Co. under wraps. The Lions actually sport a formidable offense of their own that like Jacksonville has really started to round into form at the tail end of the season. Amon-Ra St. Brown is one of the league’s premiere pass catchers, and he’s going to present a stiff test for a Jaguars secondary that’s been ripped for over 248 yards per game (No. 25) and 8.1 yards per pass attempt over the last three games. If that’s not enough, it will also be forced to deal with Detroit’s three-headed monster in the backfield spearheaded by Jamaal Williams who currently leads the league in rushing touchdowns with 13.

Jacksonville Jaguars Week 12 Recap

With six of seven overall losses coming by a possession or less, positive regression proved to be in the Jaguars corner in Week 11 after the team scored the 28-27 outright win and cover against Baltimore as 3.5-point home underdogs. The comeback proved to be the best moment of Trevor Lawrence’s young career after Jacksonville’s QB1 threw for 321 yards and a perfect 3:0 TD/INT ratio hitting Marvin Jones Jr. for a touchdown with only 14 seconds remaining and following it up with a successful 2-point toss to Zay Jones for the win. Jacksonville pulled it off by outscoring the Ravens 18-15 in the final stanza to crush the hopes and dreams of under bettors who seemingly had a ticket cash in the bag with only 22 points logged through three quarters. Lost in the mix of the huge comeback win was the early loss of RB Travis Etienne. He says he’s good to go next week but be sure to check injury reports for confirmation leading up to kick-off.

Because of their perpetual ineptitude, the Jaguars do not get much in the way of prime time games. In fact, the Jaguars will be relegated to a morning stage in 2022 from London.

In Week 8 on October 30, the Jaguars will face the Denver Broncos in London. The game will feature second-year Jacksonville quarterback Trevor Lawrence against Russell Wilson, the former marquee man of the Seattle Seahawks that is now tasked with getting the Broncos into the postseason.

Jacksonville gets one prime time game this season. In week 16, on Thursday, December 22, the Jaguars are at the New York Jets. This game features second year Jets quarterback Zach Wilson, who is also coming off a lost rookie season. We’ll know how much progress Wilson and Trevor Lawrence have made by this time on the schedule.

Founded in 1995 as an expansion team, the Jacksonville Jaguars made the AFC Championship Game in their very next season. In those days, taskmaster Tom Coughlin was the absolute dictator of all football operations and the head coach. “Camp Coughlin” was the toughest in the NFL, and the Jaguars adopted the mentality of their leader. Jacksonville made the AFC playoffs four consecutive years and went 14-2 in 1999. However, the Jaguars lost the AFC Championship game and were never the same. Coughlin lost his touch both with roster moves and player relations, and he was shown the door in 2002.

Since then, the Jaguars would occasionally show signs of contention life but could never sustain it. Since 2000 the Jaguars have made the playoffs just three times.

In 2017 Jacksonville led the host New England Patriots midway through the 4th quarter in the AFC Championship game. But New England quarterback Tom Brady pulled the game out of the fire. Jacksonville was said to be a team on the come at that time. Instead, they regressed, never to return to the postseason.
