Broncos vs Jaguars Week 8 Game Info

2022 NFL Regular Season Game
Denver Broncos (2-5) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-5)
Date: Sunday, Oct. 30, 2022
Time: 9:30 a.m. ET
Venue: Wembley Stadium — London, England
Coverage: ESPN+

Week 8 of the 2022 NFL season includes another game in London as the Denver Broncos are set to face the Jacksonville Jaguars. While some teams need a change of scenery to get back on track, perhaps the Broncos need an entire country to do so. After all, Denver has now lost four straight games following a 16-9 loss to the New York Jets.

Life hasn't been much better for the Jaguars, having also lost four straight games. Their most recent defeat came in the form of a 23-17 loss to the New York Giants, making it interesting to see if Jacksonville can turn things around by playing at its home away from home.

Broncos vs Jaguars Odds & Spread

All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are from FanDuel Sportsbook.
Moneyline: DEN: (+132) | JAX: (-156)
Spread: DEN: +3 (-110) | JAX: -3 (-110)
Total: 39.5 —Over: (-115) | Under: (-105)

The Jaguars enter this contest as slight favorites on the moneyline and spread on FanDuel Sportsbook's updated odds. This NFL London clash also features a total of 39.5, which is the lowest of the Week 8 totals.

Broncos vs Jaguars Prediction & Pick

Before the 2022 NFL season began, people would laugh if you told them that the Broncos would be underdogs to the Jaguars. Yet that's the situation we're in after Denver's horrid start to the year, which is a situation that's only gotten worse now that quarterback Russell Wilson is dealing with a hamstring injury that sidelined him in Week 7.

There just isn't much of a reason to back the Broncos until they show major improvement. Although their defense has been quite respectable, the offense hasn't. The Broncos average a league-worst 14.3 points per game and have been held to 16 or fewer points in all but one game this year.

It's also worth pointing out that the Jaguars are 4-4 in eight trips to London, whereas the Broncos lost their only game in England. With the Jacksonville staff having more experience with how to help its players adapt to jet lag, I see the Jags having the edge in this regard too.

Again, until the Broncos show a complete 180-degree turnaround, I'm taking the Jaguars in London.

Final Score Prediction: Jaguars: 20 | Broncos: 14

Broncos vs Jaguars Betting Trends

- Denver is 2-5 against the spread (ATS) in its last seven games.
- Jacksonville is 6-4 straight up in its last 10 games against Denver.
- The total has hit the under in eight of Denver's last 11 games.
- The total has hit the under in six of Jacksonville's last nine games against Denver.

Broncos vs Jaguars Best Bet

Neither team is perfect, but I do like the Jaguars a bit more here. After all, their offense has actually shown signs of life this season, whereas the Broncos have been held to only two touchdowns over their last 14 quarters of football.

In other words, a 3-point spread shouldn't be too tough for the Jags to cover as long as they stick to their game plan.

Bet: Jaguars -3 (-110)
