The 2011 Jacksonville Jaguars were a poor team as the club finished with a 5-11 record finishing in third place in the AFC South division. It was the fourth straight season that the Jaguars were unable to qualify for the playoffs and that meant the departure of head coach Jack Del Rio after nine full seasons with the club. The team hired head coach Mike Mularkey who served as the offensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons the past four seasons. He has head coaching experience serving with the Buffalo Bills in the 2004 and 2005 season. His record was 14-18 at Buffalo. He is looking to improve on a horrid Jaguars offense that in 2011 was 28th in scoring averaging just 15.2 points per game. They were the worst offense in the NFL finishing 32nd in the league with 259 offensive yards per game.
The total number of regular season wins for the 2012 Jacksonville Jaguars have been lined at 5 wins. Currently the over and the under five wins return an identical -115 odds. The lines used for the Jacksonville Jaguars season win total came courtesy of Top Bet sportsbook.
In attempt to kick start a terrible offense the Jaguars drafted wide receiver Justin Blackmon in the first round out of Oklahoma St. Blackmon was the only offensive player chosen by Jacksonville in the 2012 draft. Blaine Gabbert had the looks of a first round bust a season ago during his rookie campaign. The Jaguars signal caller completed just 50.8% of his passes for 2214 yards with 12 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Gabbert accomplished very little in his college career to garner such a high pick in the draft. This mistake could set the Jaguars back some years. Running back Maurice Jones Drew has held out for the beginning of training camp in search of more money. Lewis led the club in 2011 with over 1600 yards rushing and a 4.7 yards per rush average. He caught 43 passes out of the backfield for 374 yards and three touchdowns. That was good for third best on the squad. Jones Drew was a workhorse averaging over 21 carries per game a season ago. Defensively Jacksonville allowed 20.6 points per game which was 11th best in the NFL as well as 313 yards per game ranking 6th. They were good defending the pass allowing 208 yards per game which gave them the 8th best passing defense in the league. As long as the quarterback situation in Jacksonville is deficient the team is lying in quicksand. Bet Jacksonville under five wins and prior to wagering check the sports odds.
