The Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacksonville JaguarsWith a current 4-2 season record, the Jaguars have turned some heads. Their journey started on a high note with an away win against the Colts. However, the elation was short-lived as they faced back-to-back losses against the Chiefs and Texans. Not to be discouraged, they bounced back, currently riding a three-game winning wave against the Falcons, Bills, and Colts.

Their recent clash against the Colts saw a dramatic turn. After a slow initial pace, the Jaguars ramped up with 21 points in the second quarter. Despite conceding 14 points in the last quarter, they clinched a 37-20 victory. Standout performances included QB Trevor Lawrence with two touchdowns and Travis Etienne’s ground game. Notably, Christian Kirk emerged as a top receiver. However, an unsettling stat looms: the Jaguars have a ten-game losing streak in road games against NFC teams.


New Orleans Saints

New Orleans SaintsThe Saints have experienced a rollercoaster season, holding a 3-3 record. Their campaign started promisingly, beating the Titans and Panthers. But subsequent losses to the Packers and Buccaneers cast a shadow. They did manage to rally with a resounding win over New England, only to falter against the Texans.

In their recent face-off against the Texans, the Saints struggled, especially in the second half, ending in a 20-13 loss. Players like Derek Carr and Alvin Kamara showcased their skills, but it wasn’t enough. Historically, the Saints seem to surprise as underdogs but struggle when they’re favorites.



Given the current form, it’s tempting to lean toward the Jaguars. Their recent win against the Colts might not have been their best offensive showcase, but their defense, capitalizing on turnovers, held strong. The Jaguars have consistently scored 23 or more points in their recent games and New Orleans’ defense, while decent, won’t be able to hold back completely a healthy Trevor Lawrence. This depends on Lawrence being healthy, which is something to monitor throughout the week. 

On the other hand, the Saints, despite their offensive power, have been plagued by turnovers and penalties. Their inconsistent performance might continue, especially against the in-form Jaguars.

In conclusion, the Jaguars seem to have the edge, and considering their +3 underdog status on BUSR NFL Odds, betting on Jacksonville seems like the safe and better choice here.
