New York Giants vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Picks, Predictions, Odds

Week 7 of the NFL regular season will resume on Sunday afternoon with a compelling non-conference clash between the New York Giants and Jacksonville Jaguars. Coverage begins from TIAA Bank Field at 1:00 p.m. ET on FOX.

NEW YORK GIANTS vs. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS BETTING PREDICTION

We’re just six weeks into the 2022 season, and the Giants have already eclipsed the heights of their previous campaign, as the G-Men finished dead-last in the NFC East with a record of 4-13 last year, and now this season, they enter Week 7 sitting 5-1. However, it hasn’t been pretty, as Brian Daboll’s squad averaged just 21.2 PPG on 317 YPG across their first six contests, which ranks 18th and 25th in the league respectively. But lackluster offensive play can be easily overshadowed when your defense surrenders 20 PTS or less in four-of-six matchups to open the year (18.6 PPG).

Jacksonville, on the other hand, has also overachieved in the early stages of the season, as the Jaguars yielded a modest 2-4 record in their first six matchups with Doug Pederson at the helm, while averaging 23 PPG on 358 YPG across those contests. Which is solid progress after going 4-13 and averaging a league-worst 15 PPG last year.

Honestly, I’m still not much of a believer in this 5-1 Giants squad, but after posting impressive upset victories over the Titans, Packers, and Ravens, I find this line a bit disrespectful for a matchup against a Jacksonville squad that’s done nothing but shoot itself in the foot throughout the first six weeks of the season.

Score Prediction: Giants 23, Jaguars 20
Best Bet: Giants ML (+135)

NEW YORK GIANTS BETTING ANALYSIS

The Giants finished last in the NFC East with a record of 4-13 last season, which tied the Jets for the third-worst mark in the league. Health issues were partly to blame for the Giants’ struggles, especially on the offensive side, as New York posted a modest 4-7 record through the first 12 weeks of the season. However, Jones’ season-ending neck injury immediately derailed their campaign, and they went 0-6 the rest of the way.

Giants’ RB Saquon Barkley participated in 13 contests last season, which tied his career best attendance since suiting up for all 16 games in his impressive rookie campaign back in 2018. However, Barkley dealt with a lingering injury for most of the year, and the Giants’ 31st ranked offense didn’t exactly breed run-heavy scenarios often (15.2 PPG), so, it’s good to see him back in the saddle early this season (129 TOT YPG, 6 TD).

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS BETTING ANALYSIS

The Jaguars finished dead last in the AFC South with a record of 3-14 last season, which was the worst mark in the entire league, as the Texans and Jets both narrowly edged Jacksonville by one game at the bottom of the totem

There’s no way around it, Jacksonville’s lackluster production during Lawrence’s rookie campaign was inexcusable, as the Jags’ glorified first overall pick led them to just 14.9 PPG on 305 YPG last season, which ranked 32nd and 27th respectively.

However, their offense has played much better with Pederson at the helm, highlighted by Jacksonville averaging 23 PPG on 358 YPG across the first six weeks of this season, and that’s pretty much all the front office can ask for with a 23-year-old QB and a new head coach leading the charge.
