Jaguars @ Saints NFL Thursday betting picks – October 19, 2023

Jacksonville Jaguars v New Orleans Saints NFL tips

Week seven of the NFL season is upon us, and this Thursday night we have a fascinating battle between the 3-3 New Orleans Saints and the 4-2 Jacksonville Jaguars. Here are our best NFL betting picks for October 20.

Jaguars @ Saints spread betting pick: New Orleans -3

The Saints have had their fair share of offensive woes this season, but in this game, they get to take on a terrible pass defense. The Jaguars have given up the most passing yards of any team across the NFL, and New Orleans, who have only scored over 20 points once this season, should take advantage. The Saints also boast a solid defense that should be able to limit a good Jaguars offense and cover the spread in a big home game.

New Orleans Saints -3


Chris Olave total receiving yards: Over 61.5

Chris Olave has been great in his sophomore season for the Saints. Aside from a two-week stretch where he was playing hurt, the young receiver has cleared this number in each game and has topped 85 yards in four games. Against the porous Jags pass defense, Olave is set up to easily clear this number and continue establishing himself as an elite-level wide receiver.

Derek Carr total interceptions: Over 0.5

Although Jacksonville have been awful defending the pass, they have been able to snag eight interceptions through six games, and they have definitive ballhawks in their secondary. Saints quarterback Derek Carr has been pretty solid this year but has three picks through six games, and considering we think he will pass the ball a lot in this game, his odds to throw another interception are too good to pass up.

Jaguars anytime TD scorer: Calvin Ridley

It is almost impossible to rush the ball with success against the Saints, who have given up just one rushing touchdown all season. As a result, the Jaguars may look to lean on their passing attack, which could create scoring chances for their number one target, Calvin Ridley. The talented receiver has only scored twice this season, but he is frequently targeted in the red zone, and at +200 with the top NFL betting sites, this is a great value bet.
