Bengals vs Jaguars Prediction & NFL Odds for Week 4

by Allyson ParkSeptember 30, 2021
  • Bengals defense will terrorize Trevor Lawrence
  • The battle of the quarterbacks: Joe Burrow vs Trevor Lawrence
  • Jaguars offensive line looks weak

In the fourth week of the NFL regular season, Cincinnati Bengals host the Jacksonville Jaguars at Paul Brown Stadium, with kickoff set for Thursday evening at 8:20 pm EST.

With a record of 2-1, the Bengals are currently first in the AFC North, and they are coming off the heels of a 24-10 win against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jaguars hope to get their first win of the season, as they just lost to the Arizona Cardinals 31-19 last week.

Bengals vs Jaguars Prediction: Spread

The Cincinnati Bengals are currently 7 point favorites for this game, and I think that the Bengals will win this game by a decent margin. The Jaguars have been struggling with scoring points, so I think that the Bengals will be able to cover the spread for this game.

Bengals vs Jaguars Prediction: MoneyLine

Bengals vs Jaguars Joe Burrow

In this Thursday Night Football matchup, there is a lot on the line for the Bengals. Although they are currently first in the AFC North, it’s not by a large margin. Both the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns have the same record as Cincinnati, which is 2-1. If the Bengals win this game, it will allow them to take a small lead in their division to get an early start to Week 4.

This matchup will probably be about quarterbacks more than anything. Joe Burrow versus Trevor Lawrence is a huge deal, as they are both young and have potential. Burrow has definitely been performing better than Lawrence as of late, since the Jaguars have not gotten their first win of the season yet.

The Bengals have had some really great moments, but they have also been inconsistent. Their defense has been their biggest asset as of late, and against a struggling Jaguars offense, they should have no problem making big plays.

The Jaguars will probably look to improve their offensive line to help take pressure off of Lawrence, who has certainly been struggling more than expected in his first three NFL games. He has completed only 54.2 percent of his passes, averaging 5.7 yards per attempt.

I don’t think that the Jaguars offense and defense will be enough to stay in the game, as Joe Burrow has been playing well and the Bengals’ defense has been their best asset, especially when it comes to the running game. Cincinnati should certainly be the winners of this Thursday night, Week 4 matchup.

  • Free Prediction: Cincinnati Bengals -335

Bengals vs Jaguars Prediction: Total

The total for this game is currently set at 46 points. While I think that the Bengals will beat the Jaguars, I really don’t think that Jacksonville will be able to score enough points for both teams to combine for over 46 points. Even though the oddsmakers are undecided on this game, I would bet the under.

  • Free Prediction: Under -110
