NFL Betting Preview
Jacksonville Jaguars (2-3) at Denver Broncos (4-1)
Sunday, 4:05 pm Eastern – CBS
SBG Global Opening Line: Broncos – 3.5 , Total 48.5
The Denver Broncos will go for their seventh straight home win dating back to last season as they host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. The Jaguars and Broncos have met six times in history with each team winning three times, although the Jaguars have won the last three meetings. Last year the Jaguars won 23-14 against Denver and outrushed the Broncos 186-47 in the game. Jacksonville will look to run the ball again on Sunday as Denver has the 25th ranked run defense in the NFL. This season the Jaguars have struggled to run the ball though, after ranking 2nd in the NFL a year ago. “I think it’s more than anything lack of attempts,” head coach Jack Del Rio said. The Jaguars are 19th in the NFL in rushing this season. The Jaguars may also look to pass against a Broncos defense that ranks 30th in the league in pass defense. “We have to try to take advantage of it because offensively you can see that they can score some points. We have to match that,” quarterback David Garrard said. SBG Global reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Broncos at Home.
