Who will win the Jacksonville Jaguars at Seattle Seahawks NFL game?
Oddsfanatic’s Pick: Take the Jaguars +3
If you were expecting a decent game last week when the Saints played host to the Seahawks, you were sorely disappointed. The game was extremely harsh for everyone involved, with the exception of those who had one of the most common NFL bets on the correct number of punts in the game, which appeared to us like it was at least 25. It’s possible that this game is better, but we’re not sure we can get our hopes up given the Giants’ and Chiefs’ significant problems.
The Chiefs are 10-point favorites with the total set at 52.5, as of this writing. Kansas City opened as a 13-point favorite, but the line has steadily dropped to where it is now. Without a thorough study of the numbers, it’s difficult to get a sense for this game. However, on the surface, this appears to be a game in which the Chiefs’ offense and defense will flourish for 60 minutes versus a poor Giants squad. However, “should” is not a promise. And if we believe what we have seen with our eyes the previous several weeks, the Chiefs are ripe for an upset.
If you’re familiar with this narrative motif, you either were born in the 1990s or have children who witnessed it. For those who don’t, Little Giants is a fantastic football film about a team of youngsters who weren’t “good enough” to join the select squad. These people banded together to form a team of their own and bested as the league’s greatest team. The New York Giants perfectly illustrate the description, as they are a group of underachievers with limited skill that continues to give it their all and rattle people’s cages.
Despite their 2-5 record, the Giants are viewed as making progress. A victory over the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Monday would be a significant step forward for a squad that will probably not qualify for the NFL playoffs 2021. The Giants have been mocked for their draft picks in recent years, most notably choosing Saquon Barkley and Daniel Jones with two first-round selections. However the two have collaborated, but the Giants could have chosen differently with those picks and had a better outcome. It will be fascinating to see how long management keeps the band together before making any major changes.
Patrick Mahomes is the talk of the town and the media’s darling since he took over as Kansas City Chiefs starting quarterback position. Yes, what he’s been able to accomplish over the last few years is incredible. The team successes and individual honors are self-explanatory. But as we got started this season, you could sense a weird uneasiness among the players. The defense, which was previously ridiculed, made no progress in the offseason. The Chiefs’ offensive line still needs to improve. While Mahomes, Hill, and Kelce are still the engine of the offense, opponents have found more and more ways to stifle its potency. Mahomes’ start is his worst ever since being named the starter.
He’s forcing far too many attempts, which is resulting in giveaways and the offense as a whole doesn’t appear to be in sync. Then there’s the defense. The poor thing is, it’s really awful. The Chiefs’ defense is 26th and 27th in the NFL in most offensive categories, as well as 30th in third-down conversion rate. If you can’t stop the third down, it’s obvious that you’ll give up a lot of points and not win many games. The Chiefs will face the Giants in Week 8, and this game provides them an opportunity to identify and correct their flaws. Despite suffering a head injury last week, Mahomes is expected to be under center. All of the evidence seems to suggest that the Kansas City Chiefs will win and cover in prime time, but not so fast Odds Fanatic says.
It’s difficult to ask a team to cover a double-digit spread. It doesn’t matter if they’re on their home field, in prime time, or are the 2007 New England Patriots. It’s a terrible long-term strategy to aim for double digits wins in the NFL. With that said, we’re taking the points with the Giants Monday night for a few reasons. Even while the Giants are 2-5, they have shown that they can be a tough and annoying opponent to face.
The defense is considerably better than that of the Chiefs, and it may be the key difference in this game. The offense should be able to build on what it accomplished last week against Carolina and score points against the Chiefs. With Mahomes unlikely to be completely healthy in this game, and the team becoming increasingly nervous, and the numerous trends (see above) that are in favor of the Giants, Oddsfanatic will take a chance with the Little Giants.
