Jacksonville Jaguars vs Cincinnati Bengals Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview of the match for the NFL Football Game on Sunday October 4th, 2020.


Gardner Minshew II Jacksonville Jaguars
787 PYDS | 73.8 Comp % | 101.3 RATING

Minshew wasn't exactly great last week, but that hasn't been the normal style of play that we've seen from him previously.

This is a plus matchup for him against the Bengals defense that currently can't stop anyone essentially and he should bounce back to being a high-end QB2 this week.

Joe Burrow Cincinnati Bengals
821 PYDS | 64.5 Comp % | 89.0 RATING

Burrow has thrown the ball 105 times over the past two weeks. With that workload, Burrow instantly becomes a borderline QB1 by default.

While his offensive line hasn't been able to slow down anyone, which means Burrow's getting knocked around like nobody's business, he's still succeeding and has thrown five touchdowns to zero interceptions the last two weeks.

In this matchup against the Jaguars defense that is currently allowing the 6th most points to opposing QBs, Burrow's a low-end QB1 this week. Fire him up with confidence.

Jacksonville Jaguars +3.0

The Jaguars' defense has been an absolute disaster, and constant breakdowns along the attacking front have Minshew running for his life.

However, don't expect sympathy from Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who has been sacked on the ground this season.

Perhaps that opens up the possibility of a prospect for the Jaguars defense that ranks third-worst in the league in average sacks per game. "Sacksonville" is as real as Hogwarts right now.

Burrow isn't afraid to throw the ball against good defense, and if the Jaguars can't push up front, he'll treat them like he did the Clemson Tigers in the national championship.

Minshew and the company must also do a better job of converting third parties. They were 3 of 10 on critical attempts against the Dolphins.

He's not going to cut it even against the Bengals' 24th defense. Perhaps the return of DJ Chark Jr. would help offset some of the Jaguars' offensive problems.

Cincinnati Bengals -3.0

The Bengals are the favorites for the first time this year. It should create a sense of hope for quarterback Joe Burrow after a rocky start to his first season in the NFL.

He certainly looked impressive considering what he has to work on in Cincinnati: a broken offensive line and a defense that gave up 392.3 yards per game.

It also doesn't help that A.J. Green, the team's supposed No. 1 catcher, still doesn't look well since he disappeared last season with an ankle injury.

The fact that he's also playing with a hamstring injury could spell the end of his chances to bounce back against the Jaguars this week.

If the Bengals can't run the game, it will open up even more opportunities for the Jaguars to take over Burrow. I don't care if Burrow, Tom Brady or Patrick Mahomes is the name on the back of the jersey, there's no hope in an attack where the quarterback doesn't have time to pitch.
