Jaguars Vs. Vikings Odds: Jacksonville A Slight Underdog

The Jacksonville Jaguars and the Minnesota Vikings open the season against each other, and the oddsmakers are naming the Jaguars as a slight underdog for Sunday.

Jacksonville opened as a 4.5-point underdog, according to OddsShark.com, but early betting has leaned heavily towards the Jaguars. Depending on which betting service you use, the Jaguars are now either a 4-point or a 3.5-point underdog.

This will be the first game for new Jaguars coach Mike Mularkey, who replaced longtime Jacksonville coach Jack Del Rio over the offseason. The Jaguars received some good news earlier this week, as Pro Bowl running back Maurice Jones-Drew reported to training camp after a holdout that lasted most of camp.

OddsShark listed the Over/Under for the game at 38, which will be played at Mall of America Field in Minneapolis.
