NFL 2023 WEEK SEVEN - TNF
NFL 2023 WEEK SEVEN - TNF
Thurs, Oct. 19
Jaguars @ Saints (-1.5) Jaguars -102; Saints -118 40 [U]
Cam Heyward, Trevor Lawrence, and a bunch of key players are questionable for tonights game--strangely, most of them will be playing as of 90 minutes until game time.
The Saints will be missing two offensive tackles: Ryan Ramczyk (concussion) and James Hurst (ankle) have been ruled out. And that makes us lean harder on the Road Dog Jags.
So does this: these teams are trending in polar opposite directions: the ‘Guars have won three in a row , while the Beatified Ones have lost their last two of three.
Another quirk: the Spread on this game has been schizophrenic, ranging from New Orleans + 0.5 to + 3--then back down to 0.5. We grabbed it at the Jags getting a point and a half. If you look at the history between these two teams, they haven’t played a game with more than a four point differential in their last ten matchups.
Oft injured Derek Carr has yet to become the QB any team was hoping he would be. New Orleans is no exception. Jax’s Trevor Lawrence is playing with a spained knee; his status is the reason for the Line fluctuation and the difficulty in trying to make this call.

With the better QB and running back, behind a better offensive line, the Jax Cats should figure out a way to win even though the the Saints field a legitimate Top Ten Defense, (but who have they played?)
We’ll call the Under.
