Football Betting Thursday - Jags at Eagles

Football betting Thursday will include an inter-conference matchup of teams that have not had much success against the football odds so far in preseason.

Football betting on the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars and the host Philadelphia Eagles so far in preseason has not produced a payoff against the football odds.  The Philadelphia Eagles are a veteran football betting contender that has not placed much emphasis on the preseason for the past few years.

The Eagles make for a poor value against the exhibition football odds because they tend to play a lot of backups and protect key players for the regular football betting season.  So far in exhibition action the Eagles are 0-2 both straight up and against the spread with both games having gone over the total.

Last week the Eagles lost at Indianapolis 15-23 as 3.5-point favorites.  The Eagles have been impressive in exhibition football betting action on offense as they rank 2nd in total yards and in passing yards.

Backup AJ Feeley has seen the majority of preseason football betting action thus far and has been highly effective with a 106.9 quarterback rating and a completion percentage of 77%.  Donovan McNabb has played sparingly but well with a QB rating of 98.8.

Third stringer Adam DiMichele has also looked sharp with a QB rating of 94.9 and he will need that to continue to save a roster spot now that Michael Vick is in camp.  There is speculation that Vick will see action in this one.  Running back Eldra Buckley has had a busy pre season with 10 rushes and 10 receptions and has scored 2 touchdowns.

The Jaguars are 0-2 straight up and 0-1-1 in the football betting preseason. Last week Jacksonville suffered a football betting loss of 23-24 against Tampa Bay as 3-point home chalks as the game soared over the total.  The Jaguars are 1-1 on preseason football betting totals.

Todd Bouman has taken the majority of snaps in preseason and has been terrible with a QB rating of 59.8, a completion percentage of 43.2, and just 5.7 yards per attempt.  Troy Williamson has looked great at receiver with 7 catches for a 31.6 yards per catch average and 1 touchdown.
