The Jacksonville Jaguars are currently opening as 3-point underdogs against the Denver Broncos, which shouldn’t be that surprising — Jacksonville hasn’t done that well historically when they’ve had to travel further west than the Central Time Zone. The 3-point line is Vegas pretty much saying:
“These teams are equal and Denver gets three points for being at home.”

That’s according to Bovada, who also has the over/under set at 38.0 points.
In short, it’ll be a close, low-scoring game with the winner likely getting it done with a field goal. Vegas says the score will be somewhere in the range of 20-17, which I don’t see happening. If Jalen Ramsey is still a member of the Jaguars on Sunday — and by all accounts, he most likely will be — this defense is built to stop a Joe Flacco led offense. I don’t see how Flacco scores 20 on the Jaguars. I don’t see our offense scoring that much either, but I think it’s a win next week.
tl;dr — I’m taking the Jaguars +3 and the under 38.0 as of right now.
