Denver Broncos vs Jacksonville Jaguars Picks

-6 seems to be a fair line for this game, but expect the Broncos defense to give fits to rookie Trevor Lawrence and Denver to cover the spread once again.

Although the Jaguars offense isn't a powerhouse, their defense is so bad that the Broncos will do most of the job scoring points, but the Jaguars will see some garbage time success. Pick the over on this one.

Finally, if you're into prop betting, Melvin Gordon will build on his great start to the season. Pick him to get over 50.5 rushing yards.

Broncos running back Melvin Gordon is responsible for the fastest speed of the week by a ball carrier, reaching a top speed of 21.52 MPH on this 70-yard TD run in the 4th quarter against the Giants.No other ball carrier reached 21+ MPH league-wide.#DENvsNYG | #BroncosCountry

Denver Broncos vs Jacksonville Jaguars Predictions

Most people believed that the Houston Texans were the worst team in the league, and their roster is really awful. However, the Jaguars couldn't even put up a fight against them in Week 1.

Things shouldn't get any better for Trevor Lawrence in his second NFL start, as he will face a defensive mastermind in Vic Fangio. The Broncos are coming red hot following their great start to the season, and they'll be winning once again in what should not be a close game.

Prediction: Denver Broncos win in an effort led by Courtland Sutton.
