As of now, many Jacksonville Jaguars fans are well informed that their team won’t be favored in many games in 2021, but their first one that counts isn’t among them. Per Tipico Sports, they are currently 2.5-point favorites against the Houston Texans, who are widely regarded as one of the worst two rosters in the NFL by many.

For their first game of the season, the Jags will be a -150 favorite on the money line. That means a $150 bet for the Jags to outright win the game would win a bettor $100 if the Jags can start their season off 1-0.
As for the over/under for the game, it’s currently set at 44.5. That’s a figure that would tie them for the third-lowest this week as the Broncos vs. Giants (41.5) and Dolphins vs. Patriots (43.5) games have lower totals.

Based on the total the Jags and Texans have for their game currently, it appears oddsmakers believe the game score will be around 24-21. In their last game, the Jags and Texans combined for 52 points as the Jags lost that game by a score of 27-25.

Kickoff for Sunday’s game will be at 1:00 p.m. EST on CBS.
