The Jacksonville Jaguars lost in Week 1, 37-21, to the Houston Texans, a team that some pegged as a franchise that could potentially record an 0-17 record in 2021. That’s not a good look for Urban Meyer as he starts his reign as head coach in Duval County.

After the upset loss, Jacksonville’s regular season win total was set to just 5.5 wins on WynnBET Sportsbook, with the under favored (-150) to the over (+120).

The Jaguars allowed 449 total yards to an offense led by journeyman-quarterback Tyrod Taylor and lost the turnover battle, three to zero; all three turnovers coming from the arm of new franchise quarterback, Trevor Lawrence.

Jacksonville looked flat-out awful, and based on its previous performance, it’s hard to find any wins on their upcoming schedule. Luckily, for their sake, the Jaguars may play in the weakest division in the NFL.

After one devastating loss to Houston, combined with USC firing their head coach Clay Helton, has some people already wondering whether Meyer is looking to head back to the college football sidelines.

I find it hard to believe that Urban Meyer would stick around and struggle with a rebuilding NFL franchise if he was offered Dabo Swinney-money to coach elsewhere.

WynnBET currently has an available wager on the Detroit Lions finishing the season 0-17, and if you think the Lions will go completely defeated, you can place that bet, which currently sits at +3000 (bet $100, win $3,000). I’m starting to wonder if a wager on Jacksonville to finish 0-17 makes more sense here. I don't think this Jaguars team will finish anywhere near six wins, and if WynnBET were to post that wager of Jacksonville going 0-17, I’d throw a few shekels down on it.

Will the Jacksonville Jaguars win over or under 5.5 games? Make your pick at WynnBET.
