Jaguars Heavily Favored to Win Consecutive AFC South Titles

  • The Jacksonville Jaguars have -150 odds to win back-to-back AFC South championships.
  • The Tennessee Titans pose the biggest threat at +375 odds.
  • Trevor Lawrence will be the difference maker in the divisional race, with the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts expected to start rookie quarterbacks in 2023.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.AFC South divisional odds favor the Jacksonville Jaguars at -150. The Jaguars are searching for their third divisional championship in franchise history in 2023.

AFC South Odds: Offseason

  • Jacksonville Jaguars -150
  • Tennessee Titans +375
  • Indianapolis Colts +500
  • Houston Texans +700

The Jacksonville Jaguars join the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers as the only NFL teams with below even odds to win their respective divisions. The Jaguars deserve their -150 odds based on the rest of the division combining for 11 wins in 2022.

If there is a threat to the Jaguars -150 divisional odds on football betting sites, it’s the Tennessee Titans with +375 odds. The Titans won the AFC south in 2021 with similar core players but had far less injuries.

Tennessee drafted offensive tackle Peter Skoronski in the 2023 NFL Draft, hoping to make improvements to the NFL’s worst pass blocking offensive line in 2022. With head coach Mike Vrabel and running back Derrick Henry, the Titans prove to be the most competitive team in the division for Jacksonville.

However, the Jaguars handled business in 2022, sweeping the Titans and winning their first game in Nashville since November 2013. Trevor Lawrence shredded Tennessee’s league worst passing defense for 580 yards, five total touchdowns, and zero interceptions in their two matchups last season.

Divisional Quarterbacks Improve Jacksonville’s Odds

The Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texans are expected to start their first-round NFL draft picks at quarterback in 2023. The Texans selected CJ Stroud second-overall, while the Colts took Anthony Richardson with the fourth-overall selection.

Both quarterbacks have high ceilings but lack the professional experience that Trevor Lawrence has. The 2021 first-overall selection found his rhythm in Year 2 under a new coaching staff, finishing seventh in MVP voting.

Trevor Lawrence’s drastic improvement from 2021 to 2022 is a great sign for the Jaguars -150 AFC South odds.

Trevor Lawrence Stats by Season

Stat: 2020: 2021
Completion Percentage 59.6% 66.3%
Yards Per Game 214.2 241.9
Touchdowns 12 25
Interceptions 17 8
Record 3-14 9-8

Based on Lawrence’s career stats, the divisional rookies will need time to adjust to NFL pace of play before winning any divisional championships. Expect Trevor Lawrence to have an even better performance in his second season under head coach Doug Pederson.
