Preseason Betting - Jacksonville Jaguars at Washington RedskinsJacksonville Jaguars at Washington Redskins

Bovada Opening Line: Redskins -3, Total 34
A little bit of revenge could be on tap when the Washington Redskins host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday night in the final preseason game for both teams. Jacksonville defensive coordinator Greg Williams was expected to get the head coaching job at Washington when Joe Gibbs retired but he was bypassed for the job and Jim Zorn was hired. Williams could have some strong feelings and his Jacksonville defense could want to prove a point in this game.
Bovada reports that early NFL betting has the public taking Jaguars on the Road.
Williams replaced former Jaguars' defensive coordinator Mike Smith who took the head coaching job in Atlanta. Jacksonville's defense has looked strong under Williams in the preseason but they are still missing first round draft pick Derrick Harvey who is holding out. The Jaguars are also missing wide receiver Jerry Porter who has been out with a hamstring injury. Washington will be without defensive end Jason Taylor who was injured last week against Carolina. Free safety LaRon Landry is also questionable.

Last week in the preseason, the Redskins were humiliated by the Carolina Panthers 47-3. Quarterback Jason Campbell was sacked four times in the loss. It was the Redskins worst loss in the preseason since the 1970 merger.
The Jaguars defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week in preseason action as quarterback David Garrard was 10-16 for 118 yards with two touchdowns.

Normally in the final preseason game the starters don't play long, if at all, but in the case of Washington they may play longer than normal simply for the fact they played so poorly a week ago. "That's something I'm going to discuss," head coach Jim Zorn said. "I'm open to it. I may have to do that just based on what we did [against Carolina]. It's not a matter of throwing them back out on the field, or putting on pads and scrimmaging for two hours. It's a matter of developing a drive and getting back some tempo before the regular season. A 10-day layoff without getting them out there for a drive [against Jacksonville] may not be the right thing."
The NFL betting teams have met twice in their history in the preseason as the Jaguars have won both meetings including a 31-14 win last year. The Redskins have played the Jaguars four times in the regular season and lead the series 3-1.
