Best Jacksonville Jaguars at Cincinnati Bengals Thursday Night Football Prop Bets

The 0-3 Jacksonville Jaguars will travel to Paul Brown Stadium to take on the 2-1 Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals currently sit at the top of the AFC North division after a win in Pittsburgh last Sunday.

The Jaguars will look to turn their luck around as they have lost to the Texans in Houston, Broncos at home, and the Cardinals at home. They are struggling to find their rhythm behind rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence and first-year head coach Urban Meyer. 

The Bengals are the home favorites in this game at -7.5. The odds to bet the spread for the Bengals and Jaguars is the same at -110. The over/under for total points in this game is 46 with the same odds of -110 to bet either. The moneyline for the Bengals to win is -350 and +280 for the Jaguars to win.

Best Prop Bets

Let's take a look at the best prop bets to make on this Thursday night's showdown.

Joe Burrow Throwing Over 1.5 Touchdowns (-170)

The Jaguars' defense has holes everywhere that Cincinnati should be able to exploit with both the pass and the rush. I expect another big connection with Ja'Marr Chase for Burrow, which will give him at least one touchdown. I expect him to find another way to get another at some point in this game.

Joe Burrow has thrown for two or more touchdowns in each of the three games this season, and each of those teams have better defenses than the Jaguars. Look for Burrow to get into a groove early and stay consistent throughout the game. Mixon only has one rushing touchdown all season.

Joe Mixon Over 20.5 Rush Attempts (-110)

The Bengals will want to stay as balanced as possible in this one and, hopefully, control the pace of this game. I expect them to start balanced and be more run dominant as the game wears on when they build up their lead.

Mixon has rushed 29, 20, and 18 times in the first three games of the season. Coming off one of his most efficient games, averaging five yards per carry, I would think that the Bengals will want to keep making him a big part of the offense to take the pressure off Burrow.

Trevor Lawrence Throwing Over 1.5 Interceptions (+135)

This is my most risky pick of the three because it is relying on the Bengals' defense to pull through, which is never a sure thing. Cincinnati will be without safety Jessie Bates for this game. Trevor Lawrence has two more interceptions than touchdowns this season with seven. He has had two or more interceptions in each of his three games.

I would expect the Bengals to get one, but it is risky to think that they will get two. The Jaguars have played some good defenses in their first three games of the season, but the Cincinnati D has been consistently right up there with some of the best at the start of this season.
