2018 NFL Odds Week 1: Jaguars open as road favorite

NFL: Jacksonville Jaguars-Training Camp Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

When the 2018 NFL schedule was revealed Thursday evening, I had a little smile about the opening game coming off the Jacksonville Jaguars 2017 success. The Jaguars will open up on the road against the New York Giants, with Tom Coughlin returning to the team that unceremoniously let him walk away as a head coach after winning two Super Bowls.

To no one’s surprise either, the Jaguars opened up on the books as a four-point favorite on the road against the Giants.

The Giants were a complete disaster last season and a team like the Jaguars is likely going to just run them over. Then again, the two teams could be a lot different by the time Week 1 rolls around, especially with the Giants having a new coaching staff. On paper however, it looks like the Jaguars should beat up on the Giants Week 1 of the season, so maybe pound that line.
