The Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Dallas Cowboys in the preseason finale. They will now have the chance to prove how good they are in the 2021 NFL season.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have put together a young and promising team ahead of the 2021 regular season. They will soon find out if all the additions they made in the offseason will pay off or not.

How many games will the Jags win in head coach Urban Meyer’s debut in the NFL? What are their chances of making the Super Bowl? Will quarterback Trevor Lawrence be the league’s Offensive Rookie of the Year? Here’s a betting preview.

Jacksonville Jaguars’ Super Bowl odds for 2021.

Nobody expects the Jags to be playoff contenders in Urban Meyer’s first year as a head coach in the NFL. That’s why their odds to win the Super Bowl are currently at +15,000, according to WynnBET. That means that if you bet $100 on them, you will win $15,000. Jacksonville won’t probably win more than eight games this offseason, so you may be better off choosing another team.

The five clubs with the best odds to win the Super Bowl are the Kansas City Chiefs (+475), the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+650). The Buffalo Bills, the Cleveland Browns, and the San Francisco 49ers all sit at +1,200.  The Chiefs and the Bucs played in the championship game in 2020 and are a good bet to come back, that’s why they’re the top two picks and either one is a good choice.

How many games with the Jacksonville Jaguars will in 2021?

The Jaguars are coming off one of the worst seasons in franchise history. They won just one game, the season opener, and went on to lose 15 consecutive matchups. The case could be made that winning eight games in 2021 will constitute a successful season. However, ending the year with six or seven victories is more realistic. Here are the odds for their exact wins:

  • Six games (+400)
  • Five games (+450)
  • Seven games (+450)
  • Eight games (+600)
  • Four games (+700)
  • Nine games (+900)
  • Three games (+1,500)

If you are feeling pessimistic about Jacksonville’s chances of winning more than three games (and are feeling lucky), their odds of winning three games are set at +1,500. This means that betting $100 on the Jags’ winning three games will get you $1,500 for a total payout of $1,600. On the other hand, five or seven is a safer bet at +450.

Speaking of win totals, the Jaguars’ over/under in 2021 is set at 6.5 wins. The over is set at +115 and the under is currently -135 (bet $135 to win $100 for a total payout of $235). Knowing the over gets you a better payout, that may be the better bet of the two.

Jacksonville Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence has some interesting odds.

After beating Gardner Minshew for the starting job in Jacksonville, Trevor Lawrence has the best odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year at +275, bet $100 for a total payout of $375. New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones is a good bet as well at +300. Justin Fields of the Chicago Bears is next at +525.

Running back Najee Harris has odds of +600 to win Offensive Rookie of the Year. Meanwhile, Zach Wilson’s and Trey Lance’s odds are set at +600. While Lawrence and Jones offer the best odds, betting on Wilson would be worth the risk. The New York Jets have surrounded him with enough offensive weapons and a stout offensive line, so he’s a darkhorse candidate to win OROY in 2021.

There’s another interesting bet surrounding Lawrence: Whom will he throw his first touchdown pass to in 2021? Both DJ Chark Jr. and Laviska Shenault Jr. have the best odds t +250 each. Running back James Robinson is next at +500. Marvin Jones is fourth at +550 and tight end James O’Shaughnessy is fifth on the list at +2,500. Some of these bets are riskier than the others but all of them are worth considering.
