The Jacksonville Jaguars showed in Week 9 that they can keep up with good football teams. They upset the Buffalo Bills and went on to show that head coach Urban Meyer may be the right man to lead the team after all. Now, the Jags will have to prove their most recent win isn’t an outlier and they are indeed getting better.
In Week 10, the Jaguars will face off against the 4-5 Indianapolis Colts. Although their defense ranks 16th in the league, they’re second in the league in generating takeaways. This will be a tough matchup for the Jaguars, as they have managed to score more than 20 points just once in the last four games and a measly nine in their victory over the Bills.
The Jaguars surely missed running back James Robinson in Week 9 and could be without him once again. He’s listed as questionable and even if he suits up, he might not be at full strength, so it may be in the Jags’ long-term interest to rest him for the second consecutive game. If he does play, don’t expect him to have a big impact. Without further ado, here are three pretty enticing player props for the Jaguars’ game against the Colts, via WynnBET.
Jaguars versus Colts: 3 best player props for Week 10.
1. Jamal Agnew, anytime scorer (+400).
Return special Jamal Angew has seen his workload on offense increase in recent weeks. Although he’s still making the transition to wide receiver, he’s been targeted a lot in the last few games. Since Week 6, he’s been targeted 30 times and has caught 20 of those for 184 yards and one receiving touchdown.
It wouldn’t be shocking to see Agnew find score his second receiving touchdown of the season. On the other hand, he can also score in the return game. It may feel like a long time ago but he had two touchdown returns early in the season, so he’s a good bet to score at any point of the game.
2. Marvin Jones, first touchdown scorer (+1,500).
Here’s a good albeit risky prop. Wide receiver Marvin Jones Jr. currently leads the Jaguars in receptions with 36 receptions for 399 yards and three touchdowns. He’s only had one 100-yard game this season and the Jaguars’ passing game hasn’t been particularly efficient in recent weeks. This is in big part due to Trevor Lawrence encountering a rookie wall.
The former Clemson Tiger can get out of the funk at any time, and the Jaguars’ skill-position players will benefit from it. Regardless of when it happens, Lawrence will likely target Jones often in Week 9.
3. Trevor Lawrence, over 1.5 touchdown passes (+125).
Here’s another prop that can pay off. Lawrence hasn’t thrown for more than a touchdown in a game since the season opener, when he had three. In fact, he’s had just three in the last five games. But if you think he will buck the trend against the Colts, this one may interest you.
