  • Opening point spread: Pick 'em
  • Opening moneyline: Saints -120/Jaguars +100
  • Opening total: Over/Under 42 points scored
  • Time: 8:15 p.m. ET Thursday (Prime)

UPDATE 2 P.M. ET WEDNESDAY: When TwinSpires Sportsbook opened Jags-Saints, Jacksonville QB Trevor Lawrence's status was much less certain. New Orleans went up as a 3-point favorite.

Since then, the Saints have shorted to -2.5, -1.5 and now -1. That's due in large part to Lawrence, on Tuesday afternoon, indicating he was optimistic about playing Thursday night.

"A mix of sharp and public play on the Jags brought this line down," TwinSpires director of retail sports Zachary Lucas said.

The Jaguars are seeing 62% of early spread tickets/78% of early spread money. The total inched from 39.5 to 40 on two-way play with a lean toward the Over, at 52% of tickets/58% of dollars.

UPDATE 6 P.M. ET TUESDAY: This line bounced around a lot the past two days at The SuperBook, with the uncertain status of Jags QB Trevor Lawrence. After opening a pick 'em Sunday evening, the line stretched to Saints -3 by Monday afternoon, with multiple stops along the way.

However, with Lawrence indicating today that he's optimistic about playing Thursday, the number moved back toward Jacksonville. New Orleans is now a 1-point home favorite.

After opening at 42, the total got as low as 38.5 in The SuperBook's NFL odds Week 7 market. On the Lawrence news, it rebounded to 40 and is now 39.5.

UPDATE 11 P.M. ET SUNDAY: Jacksonville is on a 3-0 SU and ATS upswing. In Week 6, the Jaguars (4-2 SU and ATS) had little trouble adjusting from their two-game stint in London. Returning home, the Jags were 4-point favorites vs. Indianapolis, bolted to a 31-6 lead and coasted to a 37-20 victory.

However, late in that win, Jags QB Trevor Lawrence suffered what he termed a bruised knee. That'll be an injury to keep an eye on ahead of the Thursday night game.

New Orleans (3-3 SU/1-4-1 ATS) went to Houston as 2-point chalk and left with a 20-13 loss. The Saints are 1-3 SU and ATS in their last four.

The SuperBook opened Jags-Saints at pick 'em and hasn't moved yet, but the total nudged from 42 to 41.5 tonight.

"On the lookahead [last week], we closed Jacksonville -1," SuperBook risk supervisor Chase Michaelson said. "But a lot of this is dependent on the health of Trevor Lawrence. It's hard to say. Him leaving the game seemed precautionary, but on short rest, you never know. The Saints' offense is just not very inspiring."
