AFC Wild Card Odds: Chargers vs Jaguars Props
- Gerald Everett Anytime Touchdown Scorer, Yes/No
- Travis Etienne Total Rushing Yards, O/U 78½
- Justin Herbert Total Interceptions, O/U ½
- Christian Kirk Total Receiving Yards, O/U 57½
Gerald Everett Anytime Touchdown Scorer
In terms of touchdown passes, Los Angeles quarterback Justin Herbert spreads the ball around, with six players catching at least three touchdown passes, including Everett with four.
Everett, who had 58 receptions for 555 yards, wasn’t very active in the passing game in the last two games, but he did have a pair of red zone touchdown receptions.
The Jaguars allowed the 10th-most fantasy points to tight ends this season and only four teams allowed more receiving yards per game to tight ends than Jacksonville. Good news for Everett.
- Pick: Yes (+275)
Travis Etienne Total Rushing Yards, O/U 78½
The second-year running back went over 1,000 yards for the season, averaging 66.2 yards per game in the process. He should surpass that number with ease against the Chargers, who gave up the second-most rushing yards per game (126.1) and the most yards per rush (5.6).
The Jaguars churned out 151 yards and 4.2 yards per carry in the week 3 meeting against the Chargers, with Etienne going for 13 for 45 yards and James Robinson posting 100 yards on 17 carries.
Etienne, who had five 100-yard games, could reverse the roles in this game and go for over 100 yards, so upping the yardage over/under to improve the odds given could be an option.
- Picks: Over 78½ (-125)
Justin Herbert Total Interceptions, O/U ½
Herbert finished the regular season with the second-most passing attempts and completions, which increases the likelihood of him throwing an interception, of which he had 10.
The Jaguars were middle of the road in the NFL in terms of interceptions as they had 14, including three each by Rayshawn Jenkins, Devin Lloyd, Andre Cisco, and Tyson Campbell.
- Picks: Over ½ (+105)
Christian Kirk Total Receiving Yards, O/U 57½
The line on Kirk seems a bit low when you consider he averaged 65.2 receiving yards per game, but the Chargers were one of the better teams at limiting wide receivers.
Kirk was a boom-or-bust receiver in his first season in Jacksonville. He posted 10 games with 72 or more receiving yards and seven games with 45 or fewer receiving yards.
- Picks: Under 57½ (-115)
