The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of the newer teams when it comes to the NFL. Even so, the team has been able to make quite the name for itself. Because so many people are looking to wager on this team, this Jacksonville Jaguars betting guide is here to help.
The Jacksonville Jaguars compete in the National Football League in the South Division of the American Football Conference. The franchise plays its home games at TIAA Bank Field in Florida on the north bank of the St. Johns River. The team is one of the newer NFL teams, having been founded less than thirty years ago.
The Jacksonville Jaguars were founded in 1995 at the same time as the Carolina Panthers, both as expansion teams. The franchise actually played in the AFC Central initially until 2002 when it was realigned to the AFC South.
The Jaguars were able to make a name for themselves pretty easily due to qualifying for the playoffs for four out of their five initial seasons. During that run, they were able to reach the playoffs four times consecutively, earned two division titles, and made two appearances in the AFC Championship Game.
The team has earned the distinction of being the youngest NFL expansion team to reach a conference championship (which happened in 1996, during their second season, again along with the Panthers), as well as to earn the top seed in their conference (which happened in 1999, during their fifth season). Unfortunately, ever since, the team has not been able to recapture that initial glory.
The team is only one of four NFL teams that has never made it to the Super Bowl. Since 2000, the franchise has only reached the playoffs three additional times and earned one division title.
Some notable players from the Jacksonville Jaguars are Tony Boselli, Fred Taylor, Mark Brunell, and Jimmy Smith. Even though the team is fairly new comparatively in the NFL, they have been able to form some rivalries. These rivalries are with the Indianapolis Colts, the Tennessee Titans, and, most notably, with the Tennessee Titans.
A type of bet found often on NFL games is a moneyline bet. A moneyline bet asks the user to determine the winner of any given sporting event. Below you will see an example of what a moneyline bet can look like:
Jacksonville Jaguars: -118
Tennessee Titans: +118
Using this example, the team that is likely to win is the Jacksonville Jaguars, as shown by the odds of -118. What this means is for every $1 the wagerer is looking to gain, they would need to bet $1.18, to bet $118 to win $100. The team that is unlikely to triumph in this game is the Tennessee Titans as shown by the odds of +118. This means for every $1 bet, the wagerer could win $1.18, to bet $100 to win $118.
Betting in Florida
Sports betting was technically legalized in the state of Florida in 2021. However, some legal challenges have caused some bumps in the road for implementing legal sports betting in the state. But, it is likely some legal form of sports betting will return to Florida eventually. The age to legally gamble in Florida is 18-years-old.
