The Rams are in desparate need of a big bounce-back game, and the Jaguars arrive on their schedule at the perfect time for that to happen. Matthew Stafford has struggled lately, and the star-studded defense hasn’t been nearly as dominant as expected. However, this matchup should provide an opportunity for everything to reset and get back on track following three straight losses for LA. There are plenty of intriguing betting values on player props in this matchup, and you can use the player prop search tool below to find the best odds in your particular market.
Jacksonville Jaguars Vs. Los Angeles Rams Player Prop Search Tool
Matthew Stafford Longest Pass Over 39.5
If there’s one thing that Stafford has done consistently this season, it’s making big plays downfield. Stafford leads the NFL with 12 passes of 40+ yards this season, and the Jaguars have allowed an explosive pass play on 11% of opponents’ snaps, the fifth-highest rate in the NFL this season. With Cooper Kupp, Van Jefferson, and Odell Beckham Jr. all capable of making big plays downfield, Stafford has plenty of receiving options to test a weak Jacksonville secondary. I expect the Rams to open up the playbook this week to get the offense rolling again, which will benefit Stafford as he makes a few huge plays this week.
Laviska Shenault Jr. Longest Reception Under 18.5
I had high hopes for Laviska Shenault Jr. this season, but at every turn, it seems that the Jaguars have prioritized other pass-catchers in the offense. Despite injuries to Travis Etienne, D.J. Chark, Jamal Agnew, and Dan Arnold, Shenault hasn’t significantly impacted the offense. This week, Shenault Jr. will likely see a ton of Jalen Ramsey in the slot as that’s where each player primarily lines up. Shenault had a 24-yard reception last week, but it was the first time he had beaten that number in six weeks. Averaging just 9.8 yards per reception this year, Shenault is far from a big-play threat, and that’s not going to change with possibly his toughest matchup of the season on deck.
Cooper Kupp Over 7.5 Receptions
This is a highly sharp line. Cooper Kupp has been over 6.5 receptions in all but one game this season, but he’s finished with seven catches in four of his eleven games. I love this spot for Kupp, however, for a few reasons. The potential absence of Darrell Henderson Jr. could see the Rams take to the passing game a bit more often this week, and there isn’t anybody in the Jacksonville secondary who can reasonably cover Kupp man-on-man. Kupp has 9+ catches in four of his six games, and he’s played on 100% of the team’s snaps over the past three weeks. The sure-fire All-Pro wide receiver will have a huge game this week.
Marvin Jones Jr. Under 48.5 Receiving Yards
On paper, you would think this is a low line for a former Pro Bowl wideout, but he hasn’t been productive this season. Jones has gone over this yardage line in just one of his last five games and two of his previous eight. Over his last five games, he’s averaging just 37.2 receiving yards per game. While the game script will dictate Trevor Lawrence needing to throw the ball, I have huge concerns about the Jaguars being able to sustain long drives as their offensive line should be brutally outmatched against the Rams’ front seven. It’s very possible Jones can hit this line in garbage time, but he’s played plenty of garbage time lately and hasn’t gotten it done.
