Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Philadelphia Eagles Betting Picks
- The Jacksonville Jaguars moneyline would be the only play here (+240) as the Eagles moneyline is too steep for this NFL matchup (-260)
- With the over/under settling in around 48.5, I like the over for this contest. The Jaguar’s offense has been surprising, and the Eagles move the ball better than anyone in the league.
- Despite the Jaguar’s solid play as of late, they are still the Jaguars. Playing in Philadelphia is one of the toughest environments in the NFL, and Philly is one of the hottest teams in the league. Jacksonville won’t keep up. Eagles -7 (-110).
Jaguars vs. Eagles Score Prediction
Are the Jacksonville Jaguars for real? In their two wins, they have dominated an ailing Justin Herbert and a seasoned Matt Ryan.
That’s not to say the Jaguars haven’t been playing well; nevertheless, expecting a young squad to travel and maintain a competitive game against one of the more stable and all-around teams in the league is asking too much.
The Eagles’ defense, which is second in the league with 12 sacks, will be up against the Jaguar’s offensive line, which has only prevented two sacks from opponents this season.
Despite this, Jalen Hurts introduces a difficult dynamic to the team as a dual-threat quarterback, and this challenge should be too much for a young team to manage.
NFL Pick: Eagles -7 (-110)
