TV Broadcast: ESPN
Betting on the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2)
Sure, Gardner Minshew has been a feel-good story so far this season, but the Jaguars can’t be too happy with the play of other players on offense. In their last game, the Jaguars eked out a 20-7 victory at home, with Minshew passing for 204 yards and two touchdowns on 20 of 30 completions. When Nick Foles went down with an injury in Week 1, the consensus was that running back Leonard Fournette was going to show he’s capable of filling the void. He had 66 rushing yards on 15 carries against the Titans, but most of it came off a 69-yard run that erased his negative yards. Fournette will look to have more success on Sunday against the Broncos’ defense that is 16th in the league with 109.3 rushing yards allowed per game. In any case, Jacksonville’s defense remains a huge threat, especially after taking down Marcus Mariota nine times. The Jags’ pass rush can’t wait to face the Broncos’ offensive line that allowed six sacks in Week 3.
The Jaguars are 2-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last three road games.
Betting on the Denver Broncos (0-3)
Joe Flacco can only reminisce about the good times he had with the Baltimore Ravens. The Super Bowl-winning quarterback is having a hard time in Denver, and in Week 2, he went 20 for 29 for 213 passing yards with zero touchdowns and an interception in a 27-16 road loss to the Green Bay Packers. He was constantly being harassed by the Packers in the pocket, taking six sacks, as mentioned earlier. The Broncos also got 81 rushing yards and a couple of touchdowns in 21 rushing attempts from second-year running back Philip Lindsay. The Broncos need to force turnovers, which they have yet to do this season. At the same time, Denver has to have better ball security, as it is averaging 1.3 giveaways per game. Jacksonville isn’t a high-powered offense team, so the Broncos’ strengths on defense should manifest on Sunday. Denver is ninth in the NFL with just 314.0 total yards allowed per contest.
The under is 9-0 in the Broncos’ last nine home games.
The Broncos win, 21-20.
