The Jacksonville Jaguars have to put it all together when they face off against the New York Giants in Week 7, which means playing complementary football, something they haven’t done in the last three weeks. The offense can’t have a great day, only for the defense to fail to contain the G-Men. Similarly, Trevor Lawrence must once again make sound decisions with the football.
Even though Jacksonville lost to the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6, the Jags held the lead for most of the game and were in a position to succeed because Lawrence had an efficient outing. However, the defense couldn’t stop Matt Ryan, which ended up costing them the game.
Conversely, the Jags’ defense held its own against the Houston Texans the week before but the offense couldn’t muster a single touchdown.
The Jags have enough talent to beat New York and if they can avoid shooting themselves in the foot, they will be able to end their three-losing streak. Will they do it? It’s hard to tell but for the time being, here are three prop bets worth checking in Week 7, via WynnBET.
3 prop bets you might like for the Jaguars game vs. the Giants in Week 7
3. QB Trevor Lawrence, over 227.5 passing yards (-125)
Trevor Lawrence has thrown fewer than 200 yards twice this season, both of them losses. Against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4, the weather conditions made it hard for him to take deep shots. On the other hand, he threw for 165 yards against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6 because the Jaguars coaching staff leaned heavily on running backs Travis Etienne and James Robinson.
Lawrence should have no trouble going over 227 yards against Big Blue. Their defense has allowed more than 200 passing yards three times this season but if the Jaguars are going to win the game, as analysts expect, it will be because the young passer will move the ball with ease. He’s shown he can do it and he should be able to do it Sunday.
2. WR Zay Jones, under 42.5 yards (-115)
Wide receiver Zay Jones’ best game of the 2022 season came against the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 3. In that contest, he hauled in 11 receptions for 85 yards with one touchdown. However, he’s only caught more than six passes or more twice. Last week, he tallied five for 42 yards.
Lawrence will most definitely look for Zay Jones if he has a favorable matchup it’s hard to see him getting more than 42 yards in Week 7 with Marvin Jones Jr. returning to the lineup and Christian Kirk firmly entrenched as the team’s No. 1 target in the passing game.
1. RB Travis Etienne, first touchdown scorer (+575)
Running back James Robinson started the season strong, racking up 51 carries for 230 yards with three total touchdowns. However, he’s gotten somewhat of a limited workload due to the presence of Travis Etienne, who’s gotten more playing time in recent weeks.
While there’s still room for Robinson in the Jags’ running back rotation, it’s hard to keep Etienne on the bench knowing he has a propensity for making big plays. The coaching staff will find a way to feed both of their running backs and Robinson’s chances of scoring might be as favorable as Etienne’s but betting on the latter to reach the end zone first has a bigger payout in Week 7.
