The Cincinnati Bengals welcome the Jacksonville Jaguars to Paul Brown Stadium for a Thursday night primetime showdown featuring the last two consecutive No.1 draft picks, Joe Burrow and Trevor Lawrence, going head-to-head. It’s the first of (hopefully) many meetings between these Next Gen quarterbacks in the NFL, and the public is all over it. However, it’s also their first meeting since Burrow led LSU to the win over Lawrence and the Clemson Tigers in the 2020 College Football Championship game.

These two young quarterbacks have plenty of history to draw from, and the NFL odds exemplify that history. Books opened the Bengals as the 6.5-point home chalk, but early betting pushed the NFL line up to -7.5 with several top-rated sportsbooks. The total opened on 45.5 points where it’s stayed put since.

The Carolina Panthers descend on NRG Stadium for an inter-conference Thursday night football showdown against the Houston Texans. Sam Darnold and the Panthers looked good in their first two starts and are undefeated after two rounds of NFL action. On the other hand, the Texans have enjoyed mixed fortunes in their first two starts and are 1-1 on the season. The most recent result was a Week 2 loss to Cleveland after Tyrod Taylor left the game in the first half with a hamstring injury.

Expectations were low for both these teams going into the 2021 NFL season, and those haven’t changed two weeks into their respective campaigns. But as far as this Thursday night football matchup is concerned, the Panthers have the edge according to the odds.

The Panthers opened as the 3.5-point road favorites, but the line has jumped out to 7 points across the board since Taylor’s injury. The total opened on 45.5 points but dropped down to 43.5 points for the same reason.

The NY Giants and the Washington Football Team kick off week 2 of the NFL as they collide at FedEx Field for primetime Thursday night football. Both the Giants and WFT lost their season opener. As a result, they’re sitting at the bottom of the NFC East standings, along with the Dallas Cowboys, with a 0-1-0 record. However, according to online betting sites and the NFL odds, Ron Rivera’s side has a real shot to gain some ground in the standings this week.

The WFT is priced at -175 on the money line and at -3 (-110) in point spread betting markets with William Hill sportsbook. The total is trading at a low 41 points.
