The Jacksonville Jaguars have been fun to watch in the last two weeks. They’ve kept things interesting and have been a couple of plays away from winning. After getting close to beating the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 4, the Jags had ample time to prepare for their matchup against the Tennessee Titans in Week 5.
While the video of Urban Meyer that surfaced last weekend became a distraction, it looks like the Jaguars are fully focused on trying to pull off an upset in Week 5. They’re currently a 5-point underdog with a money line of +175, per WynnBET. This means that winning wouldn’t be a stretch for Jacksonville. Here are the best player props for the game.
Jaguars vs Titans: Best players props for Week 5.
1. Wide receiver Tavon Austin, first touchdown scorer (+2,500).
The Jaguars activated wide receiver Tavon Austin before their Week 4 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Although he finished the game with just one reception for eight yards, his usage will go up after DJ Chark Jr. suffered an ankle fracture. The eighth overall pick in 2013 is listed as the starter opposite Marvin Jones Jr.
Bet $100 on Austin to become the first player to score in the game and win $900. If you think betting on the eighth overall pick to be the first scorer in the game is too risky, you could then opt for Jones (+900) or running back James Robinson (+900). Both of them will have a higher chance of scoring first but the payout would be lower.
2. Tight end Dan Arnold and Jaguars, first touchdown scorer and team to win (+4,000).
Dan Arnold joined the Jaguars a few days before their Thursday Night Football matchup in Week 4. Even though he had just a couple of days to prepare for the game, he ended the game with two yards for 29 receiving yards. With more time to prepare for the Titans, he should have a bigger role on Jacksonville’s offense.
3. Wide receiver Jamal Agnew, first touchdown scorer (8,000).
Here is another interesting prop. Jamal Agnew has scored two special team touchdowns in 2021. He also saw some usage as a wide receiver in Week 4. With DJ Chark out of the picture, the 2017 First-Team All-Pro will likely see the field often on offense.
Agnew will have the chance to score on offense and special teams, that’s what makes this such an enticing player prop. He won’t be quarterback Trevor Lawrence’s primary target on offense but it wouldn’t be shocking to see him play a key role against the Titans.
