Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

Nick Foles improved the Jaguars' projected win total by 1.5 games per simulation which is good enough to get to 7+ wins, but not into contention. Their playoff chances did jump from under 20% with Andrew Luck's retirement. Their odds to win it all are 25/1, 3.8% (#13). Our projection recommends not betting on them to win it all. Their 0.5% chance is #21 in the league. In simulations, they win the AFC 1.2% of the time and are not a good value at 12/1, 7.7%. The Jaguars are averaging 7.4 wins per sim so we recommend betting them to come under 8 wins. At +130 the Jaguars are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 27.9% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 2/1, 33.3%. They win the division in 21.3% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #9 in the AFC.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

Their 5-11 record last season was very disappointing. Their expected win percentage was 50%. They were not good against the spread going 5-9-2 (-490 loss). More of their games came in under (10) than went over (6). Based on computer simulations they only have a 36% chance to beat the Chiefs in their next game. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE STATS WITH LEAGUE RANKINGS

They are a very poor scoring team based on points per game and a below average offensive TD per play rate. They are an elite scoring defense, which make sense given their strong yards per play allowed rank.
