Jacksonville Jaguars vs Los Angeles Chargers Betting Odds and Lines


Trevor Lawrence and the new-look Jaguars are heading to the West Coast to battle Justin Herbert and the LA Chargers. After scoring their first win of the season last week, Jacksonville will be looking to make it two in a row, but will the Chargers prove to be too much for the Jags?

Even in a losing effort against the Chiefs in their week 2 thriller, Los Angeles still looks like one of the best squads in the AFC.

With the chance to bounce back and regain its status as one of the top teams to watch, will LA send the Jaguars back to Florida with another loss?

Here are a couple of keys that could help each team as they try to go for a victory in Week 3.

LA Should Exploit Their Running Game More

We get it LA. Herbert is the real deal and a bag of chips. With that said, expecting Herbert and his receiver core to carry with all of the heavy lifting in the team’s offense could end up becoming tiring .. real soon.

In their first two games, while Herbert and his receivers have put up some stellar numbers, LA’s running back core has been almost non-existent. When you have players like Austin Ekeler, Sony Michel, and Joshua Kelley, why not exploit their skills and use them more?

Jacksonville will surely enter this matchup thinking about all how it can stop Herbert from passing downfield. So, what if the Chargers shift their attention to hitting Jacksonville early with a strong rushing strategy?

Herbert has a cannon for an arm. Instead of that being the main weapon in LA’s offense, allowing Herbert a bit more resting time with strong rushing plays could pay off greatly.

Jacksonville’s front seven is strong, very strong. They managed to keep Colts star RB Jonathan Taylor to 54 yards, but they weren’t facing Herbert as well.

If LA’s QB can become the team’s main distraction on offense, that should leave plenty of room for Ekeler, Michel, and Kelley to cause some serious damage.

On defense, the Chargers need to play smart football, especially to avoid injury scares. Jacksonville likes to play strong and physical football, but it is more about grinding than talent.

If the Chargers match Jacksonville’s physicality with smart and fast defensive football, not allowing Lawrence time to move or think in the pocket, a win should be easy to obtain.

Is Jacksonville Ready for Beating the Chargers?

After the season Jacksonville endured last year, any improvement would be taken as a positive. After scoring their first win of the season against Indianapolis last week, the Jaguars did something that nobody thought they could do: They looked like a functional and well-oiled football team.

They played smart and efficient football on offense, led by Lawrence, James Robinson, and Christian Kirk. And on defense, Jacksonville’s secondary looked like it had been playing together for years on in, collecting three interceptions against Colts QB Matt Ryan.

Now, as they get ready to face the Chargers, if the Jaguars want to score another win, they’ll need not only to play as they did against the Colts but double.

On offense, Jacksonville’s O-line will have to work like an impenetrable wall to stop LA’s blitz defense. If Lawrence has enough time and space to move and map out his plays in the pocket, the Jaguars could have a strong chance of making their case for a win.

On defense, the mission is simple. Stopping Herbert and his preferred targets from finding openings down the field will be crucial. If you give LA one second more than what’s needed to stop it, the Bolts will take it and make good use of it.

Playing a sort of lockdown defense to the maximum capacity might be the only way for the Jaguars to have a fighting chance to leave LA with a victory.

Will the Jaguars Pull Off A Massive Upset in LA?

This Jaguars team is on its way to good things. But now, they’re still too green to think about earning a win in LA against the Chargers. While they will surely put up a good fight, the Chargers have much more roster depth and overall advantages that will surely help them overcome the Jaguars and move to 2-1.
