Las Vegas Raiders vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Corridor of Fame Recreation odds
The Raiders are favored by 2.5 factors on this matchup in opposition to the Jaguars. Neither staff shall be beginning their most gifted gamers, making this a sport extra about their depth than their stars. For as a lot as we’d like to see Trevor Lawrence, Travis Etienne, Derek Carr, and Davante Adams, their 2022 season premieres should wait.
Viewers might not be too conversant in Raiders quarterbacks Jarrett Stidham or Nick Mullens, or Jaguars passers Jake Luton or Kyle Sloter, for that matter. However that doesn’t imply this sport isn’t value betting on. We’re in for an intriguing sport that appears like a superb alternative to money some wagers.
Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson has a profession preseason file of 8-8. 4 of these wins got here in his first preseason with the Philadelphia Eagles, whereas his final two preseasons have included a 1-3 file. In the meantime, Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels sits at 2-6 from his two seasons with the Denver Broncos, going 1-3 in annually.
Neither coach appears to significantly care about successful within the preseason, so there’s not a robust development from both employees that we will use in our betting picks.
Present over/underneath for Raiders vs. Jaguars
The present over/underneath for the Corridor of Fame Recreation is about at 30.5. With this sport being about evaluating depth and people who’ve little shot at making the ultimate roster, it’s arduous to challenge totals within the preseason. Every staff has virtually 40 further gamers than their 53-man roster.
One factor I lean on is that we’ve seen some horrible offensive performances through the years within the preseason and defenses are normally forward of offenses. Nonetheless, this sport may be completely different as a result of the caliber of the typical participant isn’t as dangerous as some groups. Sloter, Stidham, and Mullens are higher than your typical second- and third-string quarterback, however the depth goes past them.
Raiders vs. Jaguars picks
The celebrities shall be missing, however that doesn’t imply different confirmed NFL contributors gained’t play. The Raiders have an open WR competitors for the No. 2 outdoors position, so we may see some gifted faces taking part in with Stidham and Mullens. Any variety of snaps from Mack Hollins, Keelan Cole, Demarcus Robinson, and even coaching camp star Tyron Johnson is a win.
Every of those people can create huge performs when wanted. Vegas can also use veteran operating again Ameer Abdullah and tight ends Foster Moreau and Jacob Hollister. People like this could stand out far and above their practice-squad-level friends.
Jacksonville additionally has a couple of playmakers value noting. Their backfield of Snoop Conner and Ryquell Armstead is likely one of the higher tandems we’ll see within the preseason. Hopefully, receivers Laquon Treadwell and Laviska Shenault Jr. may even play.
Later within the sport, receivers Marvin Corridor and Lujuan Winningham have blazing downfield velocity. Sloter isn’t a lot of a deep passer, however with the full set so low, we might solely want one or two scores by the second half to go over.
Merely, there’s an excessive amount of expertise on the sector on the proper positions between these groups to play the underneath. Neither staff has a deep or sturdy protection total, however their offenses are extra ready for the preseason.
1u: Raiders -2.5 (-115)
1u: Over 30.5 (-110)
