The Jacksonville Jaguars have beaten the Indianapolis Colts and the Los Angeles Chargers in consecutive weeks. They will next face off against the 3-0 Philadelphia Eagles, so the Jags will either extend their winning streak to three or Philly will remain undefeated.
The Eagles and playing really well and the fact that the game will be held at the Lincoln Financial Field, one of the loudest venues in the NFL, could make it difficult for Jacksonville to pull off the offset.
Having said that, the Jaguars have enough talent on both sides of the ball to keep up with the Eagles. With that in mind, here are three prop bets you might like for the game. All props are offered at WynnBet.com.
3 Jacksonville Jaguars prop bets vs. the Eagles in Week 4
1. Travis Etienne, first touchdown scorer (+2,000)
Jaguar running back James Robinson is always a good bet to score. He’s reached the end zone four times already this season. Picking him to score the first touchdown of the game will get you $1,000 if you place a $100 bet on him.
On the other hand, Travis Etienne will help you win $2,000 on a $100 wager if he’s the first player to reach the end zone against the Eagles. While it’s a bit riskier, the payout is bigger, so might want to take this one if you think Etienne will get his first touchdown of the season. Just keep in mind that he will get around 10 carries and four targets, so his chances of finding the end zone will be lower.
2. Christian Kirk, six receptions or more (-105)
Those that criticized the Jags for giving wide receiver Christian Kirk a top-market contract have been pretty quiet recently, as he’s gone on to become the No. 1 receiver he was expected to be in Jacksonville.
Kirk has caught 18 passes for 267 yards this season, or an average of six receptions per game. Philly has already ruled out nickler cornerback Avonte Maddox, who would have covered Kirk, for the Sunday. Expect Kirk to tally six passes for the fourth time this season, regardless of the outcome of the game.
1. Trevor Lawrence, 24 pass completions or more (-105)
Several Jacksonville Jaguars have improved this year but you could argue that Trevor Lawrence has made the biggest leap. So far, the former Clemson Tiger has completed 69.4 percent of his passes for 772 yards with six touchdowns and one interception.
Lawrence hasn’t completed less than 24 throws the last three games and the Jaguars might pass often in order to go toe-to-toe with Jalen Hurts and the Eagles. Take the over on this one.
