Jaguars to Ride Jones-Drew: Week 1 NFL Picks, NFL Predictions & Vegas NFL Odds: Two disappointing AFC teams look for fresh starts as the Denver Broncos travel to north Florida to meet the Jacksonville Jaguars. The current NFL odds set by the Vegas odds makers for this week 1 NFL picks matchup currently shows the Denver Broncos posted as a +3(-110) point NFL predictions favorite versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars are the NFL predictions favorites in this week 1 NFL picks matchup and the current NFL odds show the Jags listed with a -3(-110) NFL point spread. The over/under NFL odds are set to a rather high 40( ov-110) points for thses two NFL predictions contenders.
The Broncos were 4-2 against the NFL point spread (ATS) in the 2009 NFL picks season as road underdogs while the Jaguars were 2-6 ATS in 2009. Jacksonville defeated the Broncos in their last NFL predictions constest 24-17 in 2008.
Jacksonville’s offense revolves around their dynamic running back Maurice Jones-Drew. Jones-Drew had more than 1,700 yards from scrimmage in 2009 with 16 TDs. The running back was injured during pre-season but is healthy and is expected to play in this week one NFL predictions battle. David Garrard is his wing man at quarterback and has never quite lived up to expectations in Jacksonville. This could be a break or make year for the quarterback. He’ll be throwing to break-out star Mike Sims-Walker and Mike Thomas, that is, if the line can keep the defense off him. As a unit, they gave-up 44 sacks in 2009.
Denver will be without its best pass-rusher in linebacker Elvis Dumervil for today's week 1 NFL odds matchup, who is lost for the entire NFL predictions season. The Broncos have a wide load in NT Jamal Williams, who Jones-Drew must run around, to clog-up the middle, and possess an active linebacker in DJ Williams. Williams could make a huge difference in the Broncos’ run defense that ranked near the bottom of the league in the 2009 NFL predictions schedule. Denver finished third in the NFL in defending the pass and can make big plays in the secondary. Garrard will have to be careful with the football in today's week 1 NFL picks matchup since the Broncos’ corners and safeties can play take-away. Sims-Walker must be at his best when facing CB Champ Bailey, a shutdown corner.
Jones-Drew has to find some running room. If not, the Jaguars could have difficulty scoring points in today's week 1 NFL picks contest against a Broncos’ offense that might score a few themselves.
