The Jacksonville Jaguars picked up a much-needed win in Week 4 of the 2023 NFL season, moving them 2-2 on the year.
Jacksonville entered this season as the odds on favorite to win the AFC South, but through four weeks every team in the division is .500. That's a pretty crazy start, but I think there is value in taking the Jags to either win the division or make the playoffs.
For starters, Trevor Lawrence has been very unlucky when it comes to drops from his receivers, and even though he's gotten off to a slow start, the team has still won two games.
Not only that, but the Jaguars have one of the best run defenses in the NFL this season, which is esepcially important against the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts in the AFC South -- as their offenses are predicated on running the rock.

Jacksonville Jaguars playoff odds
Right now, DraftKings Sportsbook has the Jaguars listed at +100 to make the playoffs this season.
This is one of the first times that the team has been available at plus money to make the postseason, and I think it's a good chance to jump on the bandwagon.
Jacksonville has one of the best quarterbacks in the league in Lawrence, and even with a slow start the team is right in the conversation for the division lead. Jacksonville also has gotten one of its toughest games (against the Kansas City Chiefs) out of the way early in the season.
Jacksonville Jaguars' odds to win the AFC South
If you're really sold on the Jaguars, there is more value in taking them to win the AFC South at +150 at FanDuel.
Whether you take the playoff odds or division odds, I think the Jags are a great buy low candidate at this point in the 2023 season.
