Betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars (-3)
Regular Season Record: 0-2
The preseason hasn’t been very kind to the Jags at least in terms of actual wins. Jacksonville has lost both its two games so far in the preseason, the latest being a 23-21 setback at the hands of the New Orleans Saints Monday night. What’s more, is that they saw rookie running back Travis Etienne sustain a sprain on his foot. Regardless of how serious that injury is, it’s safe to say that he’s going to be held back in Week 3 of the preseason against the Cowboys. Tight end Adam Trautman also suffered a lower-body injury in the Saints game. The contests against Dallas will likely still see the Jags use rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence. The No. 1 pick in this year’s NFL Draft went 14 of 23 for 113 yards against the Saints. C.J. Beathard should be feeling good heading into Week 3 after tossing a pair of touchdowns last Monday.
The under is 4-2 in the Jags’ last six preseason games.
Betting on the Dallas Cowboys (+3)
Regular Season Record: 0-3
The backup quarterback situation in Dallas seems to be far from resolved. Ben DiNucci was a mess in the Cowboys’ 20-14 Wee 2 loss at home to the Houston Texans, as he went 14 of 19 for 120 passing yards and three interceptions. But the Cowboys might soon realize that they’ll be in better hands if it’s Cooper Rush taking snaps under center. Rush had 97 passing yards and two touchdowns with zero picks thrown on 10-of-12 completions in the Texans game. As for their defense, the Cowboys held the Texans to only 3.2 rushing yards per carry and to only 220 total yards. Moreover, Dallas did not allow a single third-down conversion to the Texans. Turnovers were a big problem for the Cowboys in Week 2, but there’s still hope they straighten out their issues this week at home.
The Cowboys are 2-0 against the spread in their last two regular-season/playoffs games against Jacksonville.
The Cowboys win, 17-14.
