Jaguars At Eagles Betting Insights

Why The Jaguars Can Cover The Spread

This just looks like a pretty good football team at this point. The passing offense has taken a massive step forward without Urban Meyer around to sink the ship he’s supposed to command. Trevor Lawrence looks very, very good and he has a decent set of weapons to work with. Even if the Jaguars fall behind because the Eagles keep playing near-flawless football, the backdoor will remain open a la the Lions in Week 1. And for how long can the Eagles keep playing near-flawless football?

Why The Eagles Can Cover The Spread

Operating in the NFL generally means operating in a constant state of tight games. But the Eagles have completely blown the doors off of the Vikings and Commanders in their last two. And they had several big leads over the Lions, who repeatedly came back to make the Eagles sweat just a little bit. If there’s a weakness on this Eagles team, nobody has exploited it. And they’re giving less than a TD at home against a talented but unproven team. If anything, the stats — and they’re fourth in total DVOA — understate how good this team is, given they took their collective foot off the gas in the past two second halves.

Reasons To Bet The Over

When we think over, we think passing offenses. And you will have a tough time finding offenses that have been better throwing the ball than these two. Trevor Lawrence and Jalen Hurts rank fifth and sixth in passing EPA+CPOE composite, respectively. The Eagles especially have a tremendous group of receivers that the Jags corners look like they will probably struggle to match up against. Watch the status of CB Shaq Griffin for the Jaguars. He’s probably their best corner and would be sorely missed if he can’t go again.

Reasons To Bet The Under

While the Lions had quite a bit of success against the Eagles moving the ball, they have cleaned things up quite a bit in the ensuing two weeks. The Commanders had a bagel on the board until garbage time and the Vikings managed just a lone TD with Kirk Cousins going for a pathetic 4.2 yards per dropback despite significant garbage time. While Hurts has been great, he has struggled under pressure in the past, and the Jags have the speed at linebacker to corral him if he tries taking off too frequently. There could also be some rain in the forecast, according to the early outlook.

Jaguars At Eagles Matchups To Watch For

Jaguars CBs Vs. Eagles WRs

Given the damage AJ Brown and Devonta Smith have caused opposing defenses thus far, this matchup will always loom as critical unless (until, AJ Brown?) one of them gets hurt. Tyson Campbell is off to a nice start this year after naturally struggling as a rookie. Nickelback Darious Williams is a quality performer as well, but Chris Claybrooks looks like a potential target if Griffin sits.

  • A.J. Brown receiving prop: O/U / ()

Trevor Lawrence And Doug Pederson Vs. Eagles QB Pressure

The Jaguars do not have a very good offensive line, and the Eagles have for years leaned on a good pass rush to mask deficiencies in the secondary. Now that those holes have been patched up, the pass rush looms even scarier, and Lawrence seems certain to operate under some degree of pressure. What can coach Doug Pederson scheme up to minimize the damage, and how will Lawrence look when the difficulty ramps up after facing the Colts and Commanders?

  • Trevor Lawrence passing yards prop: O/U / ()

Josh Allen Vs. Eagles Tackles

The other Josh Allen is by far the best pass rushing weapon the Jaguars have. He faces a very stiff test here as the Eagles have a strong pair of tackles in Jordan Mailata and Lane Johnson. If those two shut Allen down, the Hurts should have a reasonably comfortable day. But we’ve seen Allen almost single-handedly wreck a top offense before as he did to the Bills last year. He’s probably the biggest key to the defense’s success here as the corners will have a tough time holding up for a long time.

Final thoughts

Usually in sports betting, the ideal situation offers the chance to buy low on one side and sell high on the other. That’s certainly not on tap here as both teams enter this game with stock skyrocketing. It’s difficult to know what to make of the Jaguars in particular as they just blew out an injury-ravaged Chargers team on the road. How much weight should that carry?

The Eagles look amazing so far and it’s tough to pick against them at home here. I lean to that side a bit but I don’t feel like I have a good enough read to make a play. We should learn a lot about both teams here as the schedules have been on the weaker side if you don’t give full credit for beating the diminished Chargers.
