Dolphins vs. Jaguars Spread Prediction
The Jaguars are only laying a field goal at home on Thursday Night Football to the 0-2 Dolphins but is this setting up as a trap game for bettors? Kickoff for this Week 3 NFL matchup is set for 8:20 p.m. ET.
301 Miami Dolphins (+3) at 302 Jacksonville Jaguars (-3); o/u 48

Miami Dolphins Game Notes
DeVante Parker was removed from the Week 3 injury report and will play against the Jaguars. Parker was limited in Monday and Tuesday's practices but was upgraded to full Wednesday, getting the green light for Thursday night. Parker is an intriguing play for one-game DFS slates.
Jacksonville Jaguars Game Notes
D.J. Chark (chest) is questionable for Week 3 against the Dolphins Thursday night. Chark got in a pair of limited practices Monday and Tuesday and should get the green light against the Dolphins. He's been very efficient on limited looks through two weeks, catching all seven of his targets for 109 yards and one touchdown. We'd feel a lot more comfortable with Chark as a WR2/3 if those target numbers came up, but the Jaguars are near the bottom of the league in pace and plays per game.
NFL Week 3 Dolphins vs. Jaguars Betting Prediction
The Dolphins are just 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games played in the month of September and are winless at the betting window in their last four appearances on Thursday. Miami has also dropped 15 of its last 22 games against the spread when playing on the road, all of which came as an underdog. The Jags, meanwhile, are a perfect 5-0 against the spread in their last five September games dating back to last season and have covered in four of their last five games overall. With their cover last week as a sizable underdog in Tennessee, they’re also now 4-0 ATS in their last four conference matchups.
