The Jacksonville Jaguars fought hard and almost pulled off a comeback against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 10. But in the end, they fell short, and instead of starting a winning streak, they lost their seventh game of the 2021 NFL season. It wasn’t all bad though up until the last play, the Jags had a realistic shot to come out of Lucas Oil Field with a win.
Heading into Week 11, the Jaguars have their work cut out for them. They need to cut down on the number of penalties. Also, the coaching staff needs to do a better job of squeezing the most out of their current skilled position players. If the team’s brass wants Trevor Lawrence to play better and continue developing, his surrounding cast must give him a hand.
Against Indy, Lawrence went 16-of-25 for 162 yards. Those aren’t the kind of numbers you expect from the top overall pick in the draft. But the truth is that the Jaguars’ didn’t give him optimal protection, his skill-position players dropped a handful of passes and the offense was flagged eight times. As head coach Urban Meyer told the local media, the penalties weren’t on the rookie signal-caller.
Also, having to ease running back James Robinson in his first game back in action after missing Week 9 with a heel injury hurt the offense. Still, the former Redbird was very productive, racking up 12 carries for 57 yards. He should get a bigger workload against the San Francisco 49ers in Week 11. Without further ado, here are the odds and a final score prediction for Sunday’s game.
Jaguars vs. 49ers Odds Week 11.
The Jags are currently a 5-point underdog with a moneyline +185, according to WynnBET. Bet $100 on them and win $185 for a total payout of $285 if they beat San Francisco. Meanwhile, the Niners’ moneyline has been set at -220. To win $100, you have to place a wager of $220 on them.
Jaguars vs. 49ers Week 11 final score prediction.
The Jaguars will be the home team in this game. That might give them a slight advantage despite the fact that the 49ers are favored to win. This is a difficult one to predict, as the Jags have gone 2-2 in their last four games while San Francisco has won just one game since Week 3.
The Jaguars’ defense has played at a high level in the last two weeks and could make it challenging for the 49ers to score. By the same token, Jacksonville has struggled to move the ball in recent weeks, and might not be able to keep up in Week 11 if they fall behind early. Then again, they came back from a 17-point deficit last week, so nothing is off the table.
For Sunday, expect James Robinson to give the Jaguars offense a boost and take a bit of pressure off Lawrence’s shoulders. This won’t be a high-scoring game. Expect the Jaguars to make a defensive stand and earn their third victory of the season Sunday.
Final score: Jaguars 21 – 49ers 17
