Jaguars Packers Betting Tips – Injured Jags No Match For Packers
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Green Bay Packers – Sunday October 28, 2012 1:00PM EST
Every NFL team experiences injuries, but injuries always seem more amplified on teams that are struggling. The football betting world figured that the last thing the 1-5 Jacksonville Jaguars needed was to lose its starting quarterback and running back to injuries. In week seven, quarterback Blaine Gabbert was injured and running back Maurice Jones-Drew may be lost for the season. When it rains in Jacksonville, it truly does pour. The Jags do not have an easy schedule for the next few weeks, and it begins with a trip to Green Bay to face a Packers’ team with a huge chip on its collective shoulder.
The Green Bay Packers may never get over the blown call that cost it the game against the Seattle Seahawks in week three. The replacement officials could have sunk the Packers before it even got started in week in 2012. The betting websites have noticed that Green Bay is making a run to the top of the NFC standings, but it still has a long way to go before it reaches the top. The Packers need every win it can get its hands on and that means winning games like this one over the injured and struggling Jacksonville Jaguars.
Why the Jaguars Will Win
The Jacksonville Jaguars are struggling to win games for a lot of reasons. One of those reasons could have been the play of quarterback Blaine Gabbert as his accuracy and decision making were not exactly helpful. There is a good chance that Gabbert was on his way to being benched in lieu of veteran Chad Henne anyways. The online casino players are not sure if the presence of a stable veteran quarterback will help to calm the Jacksonville offense, but it is definitely worth a try. The biggest challenge that Henne will face is trying to beat the Packers without a running game.
Why the Packers Will Win
The Jacksonville offensive line has not been reliable all season long and should share in some of the blame for getting Blaine Gabbert injured. The Packers’ offense is starting to get healthy and good just when it needs to. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is finding receivers all over the field and looking like his MVP self. The Green Bay defense is playing just a little better than it did last season, which is good news for Green Bay fans. If the Packers just play its game, then this one should not even be close.
The Bottom Line
The Jaguars have so many issues that injuries to key players only helps to accent those issues. A depleted and demoralized Jacksonville team will be lining up opposite a confident and determined Green Bay team at Lambeau Field. None of that spells any kind of success for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Pick: Green Bay Packers
