Thursday Night Football Betting On The Jaguars vs. Saints

Trevor Lawrence injury

Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence suffered a knee injury during their Week 6 win over the Indianapolis Colts. The victory propelled the Jaguars to the top of the AFC South rankings heading into their Thursday Night Football matchup against the New Orleans Saints.

Current AFC South Standings

  • Jacksonville Jaguars 4-2
  • Indianapolis Colts 3-3
  • Houston Texans 3-3
  • Tennessee Titans 2-4

With sixty hours to go until kickoff, Lawrence is listed as day-to-day. Legal NFL betting sites are favoring the Saints to win by a spread of -2.5, but we expect those lines to shift if Lawrence is declared active for Thursday night.

  • Jaguars Point Spread: +2.5
  • Jaguars Moneyline Odds To Win: +125
  • Saints Point Spread: -2.5

The odds for betting on the NFL Playoffs also suggest that the Jaguars will finish as the top team in the AFC South in 2023-24. The current AFC South futures odds place the Jags in a commanding lead, 190 points ahead of the Houston Texans.

2023-24 AFC South Futures

  • Jacksonville Jaguars -130
  • Houston Texans +260
  • Tennessee Titans +600
  • Indianapolis Colts +750

The Texans did score a win against the Jaguars in Week 3. Houston and Jacksonville will play again in Week 11 on November 26th.

The Saints have been inconsistent this season. They are currently ranked third in the NFC South behind the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Atlanta Falcons. New Orleans is coming off of a tough Week 6 loss to the Texans and is projected to rebound quickly against the ailing Jags on TNF.

Current NFC South Standings

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-2
  • Atlanta Falcons 3-3
  • New Orleans Saints 3-3
  • Carolina Panthers 0-6

The Saints are also favored to win the NFC South by a slim 20-point margin over the Falcons.

2023-24 NFC South Futures

  • New Orleans Saints +160
  • Atlanta Falcons +180
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers +185
  • Carolina Panthers +6600

The Saints’ three victories have come against the Tennessee Titans, New England Patriots, and Carolina Panthers. They have not secured a quality win this year, and we do not expect them to beat the Jaguars as long as Lawrence is under center.

Despite the short week, all signs point to Trevor suiting up against the Saints at home.

Both the Jags and Saints are favored to earn a top-four playoff seed in their respective conference, but what about their odds of winning Super Bowl LVIII?

2024 Super Bowl Betting Odds

  • San Francisco 49ers +400
  • Kansas City Chiefs +500
  • Miami Dolphins +800
  • Philadelphia Eagles +800
  • Buffalo Bills +900
  • Dallas Cowboys +1000
  • Detroit Lions +1600

  • Cleveland Browns +3000
  • Los Angeles Chargers +3300
  • Seattle Seahawks +5000
  • New Orleans Saints +6000

The Saints and Jaguars are ranked 16th and 10th, respectively, in the above Super Bowl 58 futures. Jacksonville will deliver 25+to+1 payouts if you bet on them to win Super Bowl LVIII right now, and they win. Betting on New Orleans to win the Super Bowl will result in 60-to-1 gains if they hoist the Lombardi Trophy next February.
