Betting on NFL football games

Betting on NFL football games [url=www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com]www.jaguarsauthorizedshops.com[/url] , explained Week 1 of the NFL season is now here, and for many folks like myself, it’s like Christmas Day as it’s also the return of the NFL betting season.Every Saturday I will break down how to bet the Jaguars upcoming game, as well as some of the other favorable betting match ups for the week.But first, a little tip before we get started, you’re likely to win some weeks and you’re likely to lose some weeks. Don’t be an idiot and wager the rent money or the kids’ tuition. Play what expendable funds you have, should you partake, and ALWAYS know your limits.Most folks who have bet on games have a go to site, and really most of the big name sites are reputable and perfectly fine. For the first timers, a quick Google search will get you where you want to go and for the sake of these articles, I’ll be using lines provided by MyBookie.com This week’s gameThe opening week of the NFL season is almost always the most difficult to bet on. We have almost no information on the teams [url=www.jaguarscheapshop.com]www.jaguarscheapshop.com[/url] , and the only somewhat clear picture is the injury report, though even that can be murky. Also, Week 1 tends to have a lot of craziness happen that no one expected, (hello last year’s Jaguars-Texans opener).If you’re not familiar with how the betting system for a game works, you can find a very good Lehman’s explanation here, before you get started.With that all said, let’s look at this week’s Jaguars vs. Giants match up.Betting Line: Jaguars -3 (-115); Over/Under: 42.5;Money Line: Jaguars -145Breakdown: The Jaguars open the season as one of four road favorites in the league, as the -3 line has held firm all week. While a 3 point favorite doesn’t seem like a lot, keep in mind Vegas tends to spot the home team a “default advantage” of 3 points, so the bookmakers clearly feel the Jags have a relatively strong advantage heading into the game. The -115 juice speaks as much, as you’re going to be paying $115 to win $100 on the spread line [url=www.jaguarscheapshop.com]www.jaguarscheapshop.com[/url] , and $145 to win $100 on the money line.Last season the Jaguars were a very good 9-7 ATS (Against the Spread), while going 4-4 ATS on the road. On the flip side the Giants, while only winning three games in 2017, were a decent 7-9 ATS, but a mediocre 3-5 ATS at MetLife Stadium.I am a bit surprised the line hasn’t moved towards a -4 Jags lean with the news of the Giants losing Olivier Vernon for the game and a clean sheet on the Jags injury report but that can still change as we move towards kick off. This will be the first Giants home opener since a 2012 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, so the home field will definitely play a role and make no mistake New York has offensive talent, but I feel like with as healthy a team as the Jags may field the entire season, they’re the overall better team here and the Jaguars defense turns in an as expected “Sacksonville” performance.Prediction: Jaguars cover the -3 spread and the ML, but we miss on the 42.5 O/U as the Jaguars win, 21-16.Other picks around the leagueBrowns +5 over Steelers49ers vs. Vikings OVER 45.5 Bengals +2.5 over ColtsTexans vs. Patriots OVER 50.0Redskins +1 over Cardinals Dave Caldwell’s history with first-round picks should be in questionWith the Jacksonville Jaguars parting ways with Dante Fowler Jr., it’s safe to say he’s another case of the team’s struggles to hit on first-round picks. In fact [url=www.jaguarscheapshop.com]www.jaguarscheapshop.com[/url] , with the fourth-year pass rusher now off the team, only four of the six first-round selections Dave Caldwell has made since becoming the team’s general manager remain on the team. And when evaluating those four, it still isn’t pretty.What can Jaguars fans expect out of Landry Jones?Earlier today, the Jacksonville Jaguars announced that they signed former Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Landry Jones to the active roster. ESPN’s Adam Schefter later clarified that the move was insurance for Blake Bortles, who mysteriously has a left shoulder injury that he sustained from this past weekend’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles in London. Nevertheless, Jaguars fans are intrigued by the team making a move at what has been the most tumultuous position on the roster this season.3 Jaguars players to watch in the second half of the seasonThe first half of the 2018 NFL season was as disappointing for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Great expectations were doused with injuries and a lack of consistency on both offense and defense. The five losses the team suffered were damaging to the locker room and the core of the franchise. A herculean effort in the final eight games by the entire 53-man roster will be crucial for this team, led by head coach Doug Marrone, to make a charge to the postseason. The Jaguars are down, but not out.And in other Jaguars news ...ESPN thinks the Jaguars should deal a late round draft pick for Tyrod Taylor.The Jaguars haven’t trusted their offensive line to run the ball recently and it’s killing the offense.Is there a disconnect between this team’s front office and coaching staff?Yahoo Sports debates whether the Jaguars or Rams were winners in the Dante Fowler, Jr. trade.
