New York Giants vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Odds, Spread, Preview: NFL Week 7 Predictions

New York Giants vs. Jacksonville Jaguars Week 7 matchup preview and current betting lines

New York’s head coach Brian Daboll heads to Jacksonville in search of a 6-1 start. The last time the Giants’ started that well was in 2008.

Daboll was brought in from the Bills during the offseason to try and fix a broken offense and change the culture of an organization that finished 4-13 last campaign. The former Buffalo offensive coordinator has been dubbed a quarterback guru after helping develop Josh Allen. Everything has been clicking thus far as the Giants sit in the midst of a three-game winning streak. 

Similarly, the Jaguars brought in their first-year head coach Doug Pederson to turn things around in Jacksonville. The franchise had a tumultuous 2021 season, to say the least. Urban Meyer was fired 13 games into the season after multiple on-and-off-the-field mishaps. These blunders included going to bars after losses, being accused of insulting and kicking a player and having a losing record.

So far, Jacksonville (2-4) needs one more win to match its total from last year (3-14). Things aren’t much prettier though, with the Jags having lost three consecutive games. 

New York enters the game on a high note after two big wins against Green Bay (27-22) and Baltimore (24-20). It appeared the Giants were headed for a loss as they trailed 20-10 with 6:02 remaining in the fourth quarter. Then, Daniel Jones found tight end Daniel Bellinger for an 8-yard score to cut the lead to 20-17. 

Baltimore received the ball back but Julian Love picked off Lamar Jackson in Ravens territory to set up the game-winning Saquon Barkley one-yard touchdown. The Giants were then able to force Jackson into a second turnover to complete the 24-20 comeback victory. 

Jacksonville will look to end its skid after suffering a heartbreaking 34-27 loss away to Indianapolis. Matt Ryan found Alec Pierce for a 32-yard touchdown with 17 seconds remaining to leave Lucas Oil Stadium triumphant.

Oddsmakers have the Jaguars set as 3-point favorites at -110 odds on Caesars Sportsbook. The moneyline features Jacksonville (-164) vs. New York (+140). Among the public, 63% of bets are on the Giants to cover the spread and 79% of the money is on them to win straight up.

Players to watch in the Giants vs. Jaguars contest

New York

Daniel Jones: Many NFL analysts and fans didn’t think Daboll would stick with Jones as his starting quarterback after his struggles the last few years. Jones was drafted No. 6 overall in 2019 and has largely been labeled a bust. Daboll has utilized the 25-year-old’s running ability as he did with Allen in Buffalo. The Duke product is averaging five yards per rush this season and has compiled 236 yards on the ground as well as two scores. Through the air, he’s thrown for five touchdowns and just two interceptions.


Travis Etienne: Aftering suffering a season-ending lisfranc injury in 2021, the first-round pick has finally had his moment to shine. Lawrence’s college teammate at Clemson has sliced through opposing defenses the last two weeks averaging 7.85 yards per carry and has accumulated 157 rushing yards on 20 carries. Etienne will look to finally reach the end zone for the first time this season come Sunday.

Giants vs. Jaguars Spread: New York +3 @ -110

New York was not expected to perform so well under a first-year head coach with Jones as the starting quarterback. So far, the critics have been silenced. Four of the team’s six wins have come against teams with a .500 record or better.

Nothing stands out about the Giants’ statistics, the offense ranks 25th in total offense (317.3 yards per game) and is 18th in points per contest (21.2). The unit on defense is surrendering 339.3 yards per outing (15th) but has limited opponents in scoring only 18.8 points per game (7th). 

Daboll has found a way to win close games by creating turnovers and stops at key moments. He’s also unlocked Daniel Jones’ ability to perform under pressure at the end of games.

New York has converted on 54.2% of third downs during the fourth quarter in 2022 — tied for first in the league. Jacksonville has allowed opponents to convert on 70.4% of third downs in the fourth quarter — ranked dead-last in the NFL.

The Jaguars are 11th in total offense (357.8 yards per matchup) and are 15th in scoring offense (23 ppg). On the other side of the ball, they’ve allowed just 19 points per game (9th) and are 11th in total defense (333.8 yards allowed per contest). 

Trevor Lawrence has been up and down in his second year as a starter. The 2021 No. 1 overall pick has thrown for 1,397 yards, nine touchdowns, four interceptions and has a quarterback rating of 55 (13th in the NFL). The Clemson product has had fumbling issues, in the loss to Philadelphia, Lawrence coughed it up four times.

New York’s success on offense has been due to its ground game. Saquon Barkley has rushed for 616 yards (2nd in the NFL) and has added 155 receiving yards. The former Nittany Lion is averaging 5.2 yards per carry and 7.4 yards per reception. This has opened up the passing lanes for Jones who has the 14th-best QBR in the league (54.7).

While New York has been beating strong opponents, Jacksonville has struggled against weak ones. Two of its concerning losses came to Washington (2-4) and Houston (1-3-1).

The Giants are 5-1 against the spread this season while the Jaguars are 2-4 ATS. The Jags are also 0-8 ATS in their last eight matchups against NFC opponents.

At ESTNN, we believe New York will cover the 3-point spread. Caesars Sportsbook is offering -110 odds for the bet.
