Jaguars RB Travis Etienne scores 2 TDs vs. Chiefs, Week 10 prop bets
The Jacksonville Jaguars ended a losing streak when they beat the Las Vegas Raiders 27-20 in Week 9 but things will get considerably more difficult when they play the Kansas City Chiefs, one of the top teams in the league, in Week 10. All things considered, this might be the Jags’ toughest game of the 2022 season but it will serve as a true barometer of how much they’ve improved under head coach Doug Pederson.
Jacksonville is a 9.5-point underdog for the game and to pull off the upset, Trevor Lawrence will need to make smart decisions and the defense will need to make a few plays. While difficult, it might be doable. With that in mind, here are three prop bets you might like for the game, via FanDuel.
Jaguars vs. Chiefs: 3 best prop bets for Week 10
1. Travis Etienne, 2 TDs vs. the Chiefs (+460)
Travis Etienne has been one of the most productive running backs in the NFL since Week 5, toting the rock 86 times for 536 with four touchdowns in the last five games, so any props involving him are worth checking.
Etienne has scored a touchdown in each of the last three weeks and he should find success running the ball against a Chiefs’ defense that gives up 4.4 yards per carry. The odds of him scoring a touchdown sit at -135 (bet $135 to win $100) but if you think that he will have two, you can do it at +460 (bet $100 to win $460 for a total payout of $560).
2. Zay Jones, more than 50 receiving yards (+118)
Although Zay Jones hasn’t had a 100-yard game for the Jaguars, he’s been an important piece in their offensive puzzle. With all the attention Christian Kirk will probably command in Week 10, the former East Carolina Pirate should have a solid outing against a Kansas City pass defense that ranks 24th in yards allowed and 31st in touchdowns.
Jones has tallied 50 yards or more this season and he should do it a fourth time against the Chiefs. And if you think he wil have 70 yards, the odds are +280 (bet $100 to win $280).
3. Trevor Lawrence, over 300 yards (+280)
It was tough to find a good be for Trevor Lawrence this week considering that he can have a bad performance one week only to have an efficient one the following game. In fact, betting on him to throw for over 300 yards seems a bit risky when you take into account that he’s only had that amount once this season (vs. the Giants in Week 7).
However, the Jaguars might need to lean on Lawrence’s arm if they find themselves trailing at some point in their Week 10 matchup. The offense will probably run through Travis Etienne but they could end up asking more from Lawrence, which is why it’s not unreasonable to think he will get 300 passing yards.
But if you think he won’t pull off the feat, the odds of him logging 250 yards and 275 yards are set at -108 and +168, respectively. Of course, the payout is smaller but they’re both safer props.
