The Jacksonville Jaguars (2-15) are officially on the clock. For the second year in a row, the Jaguars will have the better part of four months to make their draft selection. However, with Trevor Lawrence in place and no clear No. 1 draft prospect, where will the Jags go? Heisman finalist Aiden Hutchinson? Oregon star Kayvon Thibodeaux? Their direction is largely determined by where they go with head coaches. The search is on for the next coach and Jacksonville will once again have a fresh start.

Jaguars 2021 recap
Record: 3-14, Last in AFC South
Record ATS: 5-12
Over/under record: 5-12
While the Jaguars didn’t recess record-wise from 2020, they certainly did from a team culture standpoint. The Urban Meyer experiment failed spectacularly and would-be phenom Trevor Lawrence’s rookie season was essentially wasted. Lawrence began the season competing for the league-lead in interceptions then was dialed so far back that he threw just two touchdowns over the last nine games of the year. The road to recovery is a long one in Jacksonville and the end is nowhere in sight.

Jaguars prop bets
Prop bets are based on individual performance, typically surrounding players. Rookie James Robinson was a popular target for player prop bets this past season along with Laviska Shenault Jr. and D.J. Chark. For example, in Jacksonville’s Week 14 matchup with the Tennessee Titans, Robinson had a projected rushing total of 80.5 yards. In that game, he only reached 67 rushing yards, giving those who bet under his rushing total a win.

How to bet on the Jacksonville Jaguars
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Ravens -185
- Jaguars +310
The Jaguars are considered heavy underdogs in this matchup (indicated by +310), paying out $410 total for a $100 bet ($310 in winnings). The Ravens are the favorite in this matchup, requiring a $185 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Saints -8.5 (-110)
- Jaguars +8.5 (-110)
In this example, New Orleans is favored by 8.5 points, indicated by “-8.5.” If the Saints win the game 31-20, the Saints (-8.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Jags keep the game within nine and lose 23-17, the Jaguars (+8.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, the Jaguars’ Week 1 game against the Colts had a projected point total of 49.5 points. The Jaguars won the game 27-20, totaling 47 points. Those who bet under the point total would have cashed out.
A lagging offense caused Jacksonville games to have lower than league average point totals in 2020. Moving into 2021, the Jags are under new coaching and will likely have a new quarterback at the helm, which could boost their point totals. Last season, typical over/unders involving the Jaguars were between 49 and 55 points.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Jaguars (-125) were favored against the Broncos (+110) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Jags to win would win $8.
However, say the Jaguars fell to a big 21-6 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Broncos, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Jags to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Jacksonville (+130) at halftime and the Jags pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $8 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Broncos (+190) in that game, but Jacksonville jumps out to a 17-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Jacksonville (-170) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
