The Jacksonville Jaguars were the biggest underdog of Week 3 early last week. They started Week 3 as +7 underdogs with bet365 against the Los Angeles Chargers.

However, the fuzziness with the QB situation involving Justin Herbert, led to the Jags shortening to +3. In fact, as the game played out, they posted a 28-point victory on the road against the Chargers, winning 38-10 on Sunday.

Betting recap: Jacksonville Jaguars Week 3

Looking back at the records from the last week of our publications, we had some recommendations. Firstly, there’s one that’s still active that could be mentioned. Back on September 20th, we recommended Jacksonville to make the playoffs at +310 (31/10) with bet365’s sports futures. They have a long ways to go but they are contenders for their division this season.

For what we said for the game at hand, the upset didn’t actually hurt our picks. However, our betting props missed the mark as we went 2-2-1 in the game. A 2-2-1 record, which is basically 2-2, might look like EVEN money at first glance but when you are missing the 50/50 props and hitting at 28 to 5, you are going to find yourself sitting pretty over the long run.

  • Jacksonville adjusted handicap of +9.5 at -150 (winner)
  • Jacksonville to cover an adjusted spread of -9.5 at +565 (winner)*
  • OVER 48.0 points scored in the game (push)
  • Trevor Lawrence rushes OVER 13.5 yards (lost)
  • Christian Kirk UNDER 56.5 yards receiving (lost)

*was part of a 25 to 1 parlay that was still active at the time of writing and needed only San Francisco to win

Trevor Lawrence playing very well

Did the Jacksonville Jaguars just post back-to-back large-spread wins? Clearly, this is a different team than what we saw last season. That likely means one thing: Trevor Lawrence is coming of age pretty quickly in his career.

Lawrence posted 262 passing yards and connected for three touchdowns and zero interceptions. He had a passer rating of 115.5 in the game. If Jacksonville’s QB1 can keep that up, then the Jaguars will be very competitive in the weak AFC South. That means the Jags can actually hope for a playoff spot this season.

James Robinson had a good game for Jacksonville. He rushed for 100 yards in the contest. For receivers, Zay jones caught 10 of 11 targets for 85 yards for the Jaguars.

The Chargers were late decision-makers when it came to whether they would play a bruised-up Justin Herbert. Maybe the lesson is that if you have to debate it to the final hour, then don’t do it. Herbert was just 25 for 45, meaning his incompletes cost his side 20 downs. He also had an INT in the game. Joshua Palmer, who received 99 yards, was Herbert’s receiver of choice.
