Jets-Jaguars Point Total: Take the OVER to the Bank

The NFL has an unlimited number of ways to bet on games. From the point spread to moneyline and parlays to teasers. However, the over/under point totals have become a popular betting option for many. This week, we’re looking at the Jaguars.

In Week 4, the New York Jets visit the Jacksonville Jaguars in a game featuring rookie quarterback Sam Darnold. Darnold will lead his Jets against one of the NFL’s best overall defenses, if not the best.

The point total for the game sits at 38.5 as of Friday morning.

The first thought is the game will finish UNDER with a rookie quarterback facing one of the league best defenses. Meanwhile, the Jaguars offense is under the helm of quarterback Blake Bortles. Bortles is not known for putting many points on the board. As a result, the OVER is actually more tempting.

Yes, the Jaguars lost to the Tennessee Titans 9-6, but because of that the Jaguars are in a favorable position to go OVER as the last six teams in the NFL to take part in a game where neither scored 10 points or more have seen the OVER/UNDER cash 5-1 the following game, with an average of over 51 points scored in the next game played.

In all six instances, 42 points or more were scored. With the total for this game sitting at 38.5 and well below that, the chances are rather high the game will be high scoring and cash OVER.

In his first NFL season Darnold has been loose with the ball through three games, and Bortles has been known to be the same and that should help add to the point total as long as each does not thrown a pick while in their opponents red zone.

The Jaguars are expected to have running back Leonard Fournette return from injury. His presence will do nothing but help an OVER bet.

The Jaguars are 4-0 on the over/under in games after giving up 14 or fewer points and 6-2 in the over/under in games after scoring 14 or fewer points.

Off course, these offenses are not known for lighting up the scoreboard like the Saints, Falcons or Rams might, but both teams should combine to score higher than 38.5.
