The Jacksonville Jaguars were a 7-point underdog earlier this week but the spread’s been moved and now the Los Angeles Chargers are favored to win by just three points. The move might have been due to Justin Herbert’s status for the game.
The Chargers quarterback suffered a rib cartilage fracture against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2 and will be a game-time decision, per Daniel Popper of The Athletic. If Herbert doesn’t suit up, the Jags will face off against veteran Chase Daniel, who would be making his first start since 2019.
But whether Herbert plays or not, Jacksonville must prepare as if he will. With that in mind, here are three prop bets you might like, via WynnBET.
3 enticing prop bets for the Jaguars Week 3 matchup vs. the Chargers
1. James Robinson, 2 touchdowns (+1000)
Running back James Robinson is fully healthy after tearing his Achilles last year. He averaged 2.78 yards on 23 carries against the Indianapolis Colts but he still manage to break off a 37-yard run for a touchdown and has already scored three times this season.
Robinson is a good bet to score against the Bolts. Betting $100 on him to do so will get you $170 for a total payout of $270. However, you could win $1,000 if he reaches the end zone twice. It’s a bit riskier but it’s doable and the payoff may be worth it.
2. Zay Jones or Marvin Jones Jr, first touchdown of the game (+2000)
Christian Kirk has established himself as the top option in the Jaguars’ passing game but Zay Jones and Marvin Jones Jr. are also important pieces of their offensive puzzle. Kirk scored two touchdowns against Indy in Week 2 and he could get another one against Los Angeles.
However, teams will start to devote extra attention to him, which could help draw coverage away from the Joneses. Picking either Jones to score the first touchdown of the game will net you $2,000 but if you want to play it safe, you can pick either one to be the first Jaguar to find the end zone and you would still get $ 700 (Marvin Jones) or $800 (Zay Jones).
3. Trevor Lawrence, first-half touchdown scorer (+2000)
Here’s another prop with potential for a big payoff. Two of Trevor Lawrence’s three touchdowns this season have come in the second half but there’s no reason to believe the sophomore quarterback can get ahead on the scoreboard in the first or second quarter.
Of course, the Jaguar’s offensive line will need to give Lawrence a clean pocket, and that might prove to be a tough task, as they will have to deal with Joey Bosa and Khalil Mack.
