Game Analysis & Picks
Last season was a failed experiment at the NFL level for Urban Meyer, who had the Jaguars in dysfunctional disarray for the entirety of his tenure in Jacksonville. Unfortunately, for the former top overall pick Trevor Lawrence, this lead to widespread struggles in his first NFL season. Fast-forward to Year 2, and Lawrence now has a former Super Bowl champion (as both a player and coach) calling the shots, as Doug Pederson was brought in this offseason. The Jaguars will also benefit from the addition of WR Christian Kirk, and the return of Travis Etienne Jr., who missed all of his rookie season.
For the Commanders, Carson Wentz is taking over under center in 2022 and Penn State standout Jahan Dotson was also added in the draft, along with impressive Crimson Tide product Brian Robinson. But right after Robinson had earned lead RB duties, he was the victim of a carjacking attempt where he left the scene with gunshot wounds and now opens the season on the PUP. Given that the Commanders will now be relying on Antonio Gibson instead of Robinson, I’m fading the Commanders early on and rolling with the Jaguars today. I’m on board with Jacksonville and the points (+3) and to win outright (+125), along with the Under in the game (44.0).
Trevor Lawrence (JAX) Over 1.5 Passing TDs (+123) & Over 237.5 Passing Yards (-115) – Lawrence is getting a fresh start under Pederson and should have success finding Kirk, Etienne and newcomer Evan Engram in the passing game.
