Odds: New York Jets are 6.5 point underdogs to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The over/under is at 43.5 points.
The Jaguars are big home favorites heading into Sunday's game. Jacksonville's 3-4 record is a good bit more respectable than New York's 1-5 record, and the Jets are coming off of a complete thrashing on Monday Night Football at the hand of the New England Patriots.
New York's 33-0 loss on Monday saw second-year quarterback Sam Darnold only 11-of-32 passes for 86 yards and a staggering four interceptions. Along with his disaster night as a passer, Darnold also lost a fumble.
The Jaguars do not deploy a defensive scheme that even partially resembles what the Patriots threw at Darnold on Monday so the same results should not be expected, but Darnold will be walking into a tough matchup nonetheless, due to the Jaguars' defense being fresh off of a Week 7 performance where they forced four turnovers. The Jaguars being a big favorite here makes sense.
As for the over/under, I do not think this will be a high scoring game. Jacksonville has only scored one offensive touchdown in the last two weeks, and the Jets' defense is better than the Bengals unit the Jaguars struggled to score against last Sunday.
Darnold will also be missing several starting offensive lineman, so it remains to be seen how either team's offense lights up the scoreboard when it comes to Sunday.
