The Jacksonville Jaguars finished with the worst record last year, going 1-15. Oddly enough, they upset the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1 but didn’t register a single win after that. It marked the ninth consecutive losing season for Jacksonville after making it to the AFC Championship game back in 2018. Following the season, the Jaguars fired Doug Marrone, who spent four seasons as head coach.
The Jaguars went 7-9 against the spread in the 2020-2021 season, and if you bet on their over/under, they were 8-8.
Jacksonville finally landed their franchise quarterback, taking Trevor Lawrence with the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Billed as the best QB prospect since Andrew Luck, Lawrence will automatically improve the Jaguars this upcoming season.
Running back Travis Etienne was also drafted by Jacksonville in the first round, and the two-time ACC Player of the Year was a teammate of Lawrence’s at Clemson. Jacksonville also brought in veteran RB Carlos Hyde to help out in the backfield.
The Jaguars added some decent targets for Lawrence in the offseason, acquiring wide receivers Marvin Jones Jr. and Philip Dorsett. Jacksonville also beefed up their interior defensive line, signing Malcolm Brown and Roy Robertson-Harris.
Corner Rashaan Melvin joined the Panthers in the offseason, but the Jags replaced him with Shaquill Griffin from Seattle. Griffin was named a Pro Bowler with the Seahawks in 2019. Another addition to Jacksonville’s secondary was Rayshawn Jenkins coming over from the Chargers, as the 27-year-old safety agreed to a four-year contract in March.
Action 247 Sportsbook has the Jaguars over/under for wins this season at 6.5. Jacksonville is +1000 to win the AFC South and is listed at +9900 to win Super Bowl 56. Only the Detroit Lions and Houston Texans have worse odds to hoist the Lombardi Trophy.
