The Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills will square off in London on Sunday, October 8, 2023, at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in Week 5 of the NFL season. The Bills are favored by 5.5 points, with the over/under set at 48 points.
Jacksonville Jaguars Betting Outlook
The Jaguars are coming off a 23-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 4. All in all, it was their second win of the season, and their first since Week 1.
The Jaguars’ defense has been their strength so far this season. Furthermore, they are ranked fifth in the NFL in total yards allowed per game (344.5) and fourth in points allowed per game (20.5). Additionally, in Week 4, they held the Falcons to just 276 total yards and 17 points.
The Jaguars’ offense has been more of a mixed bag. They are ranked 24th in the NFL in total yards per game (337.8) and 20th in points per game (20.0). However, they showed some signs of improvement in Week 4, scoring 23 points against a solid Falcons defense.
The Jaguars’ offense is led by quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who is in his second season in the NFL. Lawrence has shown some flashes of potential this season, but he has also been inconsistent. Overall, he has thrown for 987 yards and five touchdowns in four games this season. However, he has also thrown seven interceptions.
The Jaguars also have a number of talented weapons on offense, including wide receivers Christian Kirk and Zay Jones, and running back James Robinson. However, the Jaguars’ offensive line has been a problem so far this season. They have allowed 16 sacks in four games, which is tied for the most in the NFL.
Buffalo Bills Betting Outlook
The Bills are one of the favorites to win the Super Bowl this season. They are coming off a 48-20 win over the Miami Dolphins in Week 4, their third straight win.
The Bills are led by quarterback Josh Allen, who is one of the most dynamic players in the NFL. Allen is a dual-threat quarterback who can hurt opposing defenses with his arm and his legs. He has thrown for 1,042 yards and eight touchdowns in four games this season, and he has also rushed for 200 yards and two touchdowns.
The Bills also have a high-powered offense that features wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis, and running back Devin Singletary. The Bills are ranked second in the NFL in total yards per game (400.0) and first in points per game (38.0).
The Bills’ defense has also been solid so far this season. They are ranked ninth in the NFL in total yards allowed per game (332.3) and sixth in points allowed per game (21.0). In Week 4, they held the Dolphins to just 285 total yards and 20 points.
The Bills’ defense is led by linebacker Tre’Davious White, who is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. White is a shutdown corner who can take away one side of the field. The Bills also have a strong pass rush led by defensive end Ed Oliver and linebacker Von Miller.
What’s Key to the Bills vs. Jaguars Matchup
The key to the game for the Jaguars will be to slow down the Bills’ offense. The Jaguars’ defense is good, but they will be tested by the Bills’ high-powered offense. The Jaguars will need to pressure on Allen and force him into mistakes. They will also need to limit the Bills’ big plays in the passing game.
The key to the game for the Bills will be to protect Allen and give him time to throw. The Bills’ offensive line has been good this season, but they will be facing a tough Jaguars pass rush. The Bills will also need to run the ball effectively to keep the Jaguars’ defense honest.
Bills vs. Jaguars Sunday Prediction
The Bills are the better team on paper, and they are the favorites for a reason. However, the Jaguars are a dangerous team, and they have the potential to pull off an upset.
I predict that the Bills will win the game, but it will be a close one. I think the Bills will score in the high 20s or low 30s, and the Jaguars will score in the low 20s.
Final Score: Bills 28, Jaguars 20
