Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence is a true game-time decision for the team’s Week 7 game against the New Orleans Saints with a knee sprain. 

Lawrence was injured in the team’s win over the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6. If he can't go, CJ Beathard will be in line to start on Thursday night. 

There has been movement in the odds for the Jags-Saints game since Lawrence’s injury was announced. 

Trevor Lawrence injury status for Week 7 game against New Orleans Saints

Lawrence is listed as questionable for Week 7. The team released an official injury report on Wednesday, and it seems like there is a chance he can play this week.

Trevor Lawrence injury moves spread for Jaguars vs. Saints

After opening as one-point favorites against the Jaguars, the Saints are now favored by three points with Lawrence’s status up in the air due to his knee sprain. 

This spread movement suggests that oddsmakers are bracing for Lawrence to miss this game.

If Lawrence does play, the spread may shift back in favor of the Jaguars. This is a chance for those willing to risk it to get Jacksonville at a better number if the star quarterback does suit up. 

Best Jacksonville Jaguars prop bet if Trevor Lawrence misses Week 7

Jacksonville Jaguars team total UNDER 17.5 points

If Lawrence does sit, it may be time to fade the Jaguars offense. 

Beathard has not started an NFL game since 2020, and the Jaguars currently rank 20th in the NFL in yards per play on offense – and that’s with Lawrence at quarterback. They’ll likely take a step back if he’s out. 

New Orleans has also allowed the eighth fewest points in the NFL this season, so we could be in for a slugfest on Thursday night if Lawrence doesn’t play.
