    Vegas typically knows what's up when it comes to matchups and it was no different in Week 1 when the Jaguars were surprisingly only a 4.5 point underdog, and then coincidentally lost by just four points. This week as the team prepares to make the dreaded west coast trip to take on the San Diego Chargers, they're just a three point underdog according to OddsShark.

    Like last week however, the Jaguars line opened as 2.5 point underdogs on the road, which in a roundabout way is them being the favorite on the road, considering in games that are viewed as even by Vegas, the home team gets the three point push. In this instance, the money has gone on the Chargers side so the line has been raised to three points and could move a little bit more if money continues to come in on San Diego.

    As for the actual game, this is one I think not only the Jaguars must win, but it's one they will win. Every fiber of my being thinks I'm an idiot for thinking the team is going to win in San Diego, because they never have in the franchise's existence, going 0-3 all time against the Chargers on the road. It's not just San Diego either, as the team has historically struggled with west coast trips especially under Gus Bradley.

    It's not just the fact that the Jaguars struggle on the west coast, but the fact that Phillip Rivers has the magic touch against Cover-3 heavy defenses, most notably the Jaguars, absolutely destroying them in the Gus Bradley era.

    All that being said, I think the Jaguars come out Sunday from the get go and take the game to San Diego and pick up the second September win ever in the Gus Bradley era.

    So seeing as how they're on the road, Vegas is essentially saying they see these teams as being pretty even.

    Depends what type of 3 point dog the Jags take. If it was a little dog, I'm pretty certain we can take them...but anything bigger than say a spaniel and our second half soft D probably isn't going to cope.

    By making the Yags 3 point underdogs, it's basically a push.

    I'm worried the Jags will abuse our "little" corners
