The Jacksonville Jaguars were favored to win 7 or more games in 2017. The price was coming in at -140. Six or less game wins, which is possible, would pay $11 for every $10 bet or $110 for every $100 bet.
We always expect the Jaguars to improve but continue to be disappointed. There are some positives occurring in this organization, especially with some nice off season moves. These include one of the best defensive lineman (Calais Campbell) and the most promising cornerback (A.J. Bouye). They get Cowboys safety Barry Church. They're deep at defensive end, where Yannick Ngakoue might actually be better than former third-overall pick Dante Fowler Jr.
Leonard Fournette is another solid addition.
We wouldn’t take the UNDER for this reason but, call us skeptical about reaching the .500 mark for the first time in how many years. It's more likely but the price is painful.
We’re also not convinced about starting quarterback Blake Bortles, though he has improved his running game the second half of last season.
There is also new management in place and a new head coach.
In the end, we can see Jacksonville finishing above Houston in this division.
