Another week, another win for the Jacksonville Jaguars, who rode a big game from Travis Etienne to defeat the Indianapolis Colts for the second time this season.
The win was the third straight for the Jaguars, keeping them in first place in the AFC South as we enter Week 7. The Jaguars are starting to show why many projected them to not only win this division but make a push for a deep playoff run ahead of the 2023 season.
However, oddsmakers don’t seem to be sold on the Jags. The team has not moved up at all in the latest odds to win the Super Bowl, which could be a major sign of disrespect a third of the way through this season.

Jacksonville Jaguars odds to win the Super Bowl
Despite winning three straight games, Jacksonville’s odds to win the Super Bowl have remained relatively unchanged. The team has been either +2800 or +2700 to win the Super Bowl for each of the last three weeks.
At those odds, the Jaguars are on the outside looking in of other contenders in the AFC. That could make the team a little undervalued, but it’s also a bit disrespectful.
Jaguars disrespected in Super Bowl odds
Jacksonville is one of my favorite bets to win the Super Bowl at this point in this season because the team is in the same area as the Cincinnati Bengals (3-3, +2900 odds), Cleveland Browns (3-2, +3000 odds) and Los Angeles Chargers (2-2 entering Monday, +2800 odds).
None of those teams are leading their own division, and none of them have as easy a path to a division title as the Jags do.
Jacksonville has been favored to win the AFC South since the offseason, and now the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts are both dealing with injuries to their starting quarterbacks.
The fact that the Jags could win the division – and win it fairly easily – should have them closer to where the Baltimore Ravens (+1800) or Detroit Lions (+1300) are in the odds.
Trevor Lawrence’s knee will be a key for the Jags going forward, as an injury that holds him out of games would be an issue, but for now the team is not getting nearly enough love for turning things around after a 1-2 start.
Since Week 4, the Jags have outscored their opponents by 38 points and have scored at least 23 points in every game, including a win over the Buffalo Bills, who are +1000 to win the Super Bowl.
If the team keeps playing this well and winning games, its Super Bowl odds will shrink eventually. Now may be one of the last times to get in the Jags at a favorable number.
Jacksonville takes on the New Orleans Saints (3-3) on Thursday Night Football in Week 7.
