Jaguars at Bengals Player Prop Bets to Hammer for Thursday Night Football

We’re back again for the start of Week 4, as the Jacksonville Jaguars travel to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals. After the Dallas Cowboys thoroughly beat the Philadelphia Eagles, my record sits at a mediocre 3-6, although I am still positive on units due to Dak Prescott’s three touchdown passes (+145) hit. Prop bets will certainly need to be placed in order to have fun watching this game, so let’s get to it.

1. Joe Burrow Over 20.5 Completions (-135)

A dominant passing attack from the Cincinnati Bengals should overpower a Jaguars defense that lacks playmakers in the secondary. Burrow has struggled when under pressure this season, but I don’t expect the Jaguars’ defense to get much pressure on him this game. I anticipate an early downfield attack and 21 completions seem low to expose Urban Meyer’s secondary.

2. DJ Chark Under 3.5 Receptions (-125)

So far this season, Chark has rarely been targeted in the passing game. The more concerning part is, he is converting less than 50 percent of his targets into actual receptions. Even though the Jaguars will likely play from behind this game, it would be hard to say just how much of an impact Chark will have on this offense. If I had to guess based on the past three weeks, he shouldn’t see too many targets and Trevor Lawrence should continue to pepper Marvin Jones Jr.

3. Ja’Marr Chase First Touchdown Scorer (+700)

As a mega-longshot this Thursday, I decided to go with Ja’Marr Chase as the first TD scorer of the game. Chase has the most receiving yards and touchdowns against man coverage this season, so I expect him to continue his scoring streak in Week 4 (+100 as anytime TD scorer). Chase has obvious chemistry with Burrow and has silenced all doubters regarding his catching ability. If you don’t want to risk him scoring first, that’s understandable. If that’s the case I would definitely consider his prop as an anytime scorer against a weak Jacksonville secondary that just traded their former first-round cornerback.
