Leading up to the 2022 NFL season, Post Action Betting will release a gambling preview for all 32 teams in the National Football League, covering the schedule, predictions, win total over/under picks, and prop bets for every team. Today, we will cover the Jacksonville Jaguars. Yesterday, we previewed the hometown New York Jets.

Jacksonville Jaguars (120/1 to win the Super Bowl, FanDuel)

2021 Record: 3-14 (4th in AFC South)

Urban Meyer is out, and Doug Pederson is in. The key move of the Jaguars’ offseason was filling the head coaching void after firing the former Florida & Ohio State head coach mid-season last year. Jaguars GM Trent Baalke opted for Pederson, a former quarterback and Super Bowl-winning head coach with the Philadelphia Eagles. 

Pederson takes over a Jacksonville team that hasn’t produced a winning season since 2017, when they reached the AFC Championship Game. Jacksonville will hope Pederson’s knowledge of the quarterback position leads to a step-up for second-year talent Trevor Lawrence, last year’s number-one overall pick. Last season, Lawrence threw for 12 TDs and 17 INTs while ranking 29th in quarterback DVOA, per footballoutsiders.com

Elsewhere, the Jaguars need a massive upgrade on defense to have a chance at a winning season. Last year, Jacksonville had the second-worst defense in the NFL. On the bright side, the Jaguars have the 12th easiest schedule this season, per Sean Koerner of The Action Network.

NFL Betting Lines: Jaguars Win Total O/U

6.5 Wins (FanDuel)

The Jaguars officially possess a competent head coach. It is difficult to put a value on ridding themselves of the circus that was Urban Meyer, but they will improve off their three-win 2021 campaign, and it should be a time to believe in the Jaguars.

But is a new head coach really worth four wins throughout a season? Sure, if you believe Pederson’s QB-whispering skills will see an uptick in performance from Lawrence and that Jacksonville is capable of taking advantage of what is (on paper) a very easy schedule at home. 

However, this defense still leaves a lot to be desired. Not only did it possess the 31st-best DVOA in the league last season, but it was 31st in the NFL against the pass. New signings at CB should help slightly, but just by scanning the schedule, there are at least nine games against above-average quarterbacks. If the Jags falter in those games, that leaves very little room to surpass this win total. 

At the same time, it helps the Jaguars’ case that they play in one of the weaker divisions in the NFL. The Colts should keep pace with their record last season, but expect the Titans to regress a bit, and the Texans will be one of the worst teams in the league. 

If the Jaguars can hold serve at home against those teams or grab two wins against the Texans and one combined against the Colts and Titans, expect more likely than not that they clear this total. 

Betting on the NFL?

Further, just looking at the odds on each side of the win total makes it more enticing to back the over. At +115, oddsmakers are suggesting the implied odds on Jacksonville winning seven or more games is 46.5 percent. The best-case scenario for the Jaguars here is eight or nine wins. 

Place some trust in the former Super Bowl-winning coach and back Pederson to succeed in his debut season.

AFC South Dual Forecast – Colts/Jaguars (+450), BetMGM

Let’s not turn a blind eye to the fact the Colts have an objectively easy schedule. As a result, they should have no problem claiming this weak division, especially considering the departures for Tennessee at various skill positions. 

Given the cautious optimism surrounding the Jaguars, there should be a decent chance they can finish second in the division. We know the Texans will likely be last – BetMGM has them at -500 to bring up the rear in the division. 

So, it really comes down to the Titans and Jaguars for second place in the AFC South. Given Tennessee had the 20th-best offensive DVOA last season and 12th-best defensive DVOA, it would undoubtedly point to regression coming for Tennessee. 

If the Jaguars can take advantage of some favorable spots on the schedule, there’s a better chance they finish second than these implied odds (18.18 percent) suggest. 

Although it’s a steep mountain to climb, bettors can get decent value in a weak division with this prop.

Kourtney Kardashian uses Kopari Coconut Melt to ‘look good naked’

Kourtney Kardashian’s no stranger to showing skin.

Whether the reality star’s modeling lingerie, baring it all in a bikini or packing on PDA with husband Travis Barker, she’s clearly confident about her body — and relies on a selection of tried-and-true products to keep her skin in tip-top shape.

In one of her first-ever Poosh stories, fittingly titled “How to Look Good Naked,” the 43-year-old outlines some of her body care essentials, including La Mer The Body Crème ($300), Dr. Barbara Sturm Anti-Aging Body Cream ($95) and Le Labo’s Pin 12 Candle ($82) — the latter because “lighting is everything.”

But not everything on Kardashian’s list will bust your budget. She also swears by Kopari Organic Coconut Melt, which will set you back just $29 for a full-sized jar or $18 for a mini version.

“In order to achieve glowy skin, it’s important to moisturize everything — everywhere — at least once a day,” the Poosh piece reads. “Don’t forget to care for your hands and feet as well; we recommend focusing on these areas at night.”

Billed as “a deep conditioner for your bod,” the product is comprised of 100% organic, unrefined coconut oil, and Kopari suggests applying it “as soon as you step out of the shower and at the end of the day.”

What’s more, the multitasking product also works well as a hair mask, dry shave oil, bath mix-in and belly balm, per the brand.

Snag a tub for yourself below — and get ready to look fabulous in your birthday suit, too.

Carlos Carrasco’s gem, three homers propel Mets past Marlins

Published

By


MIAMI — He’s one tough Cookie these days.

Carlos Carrasco isn’t going to win any contests blowing away hitters, but the right-hander’s offspeed pitches and command — and most importantly, his health — have converged this season to give the Mets an invaluable rotation piece.

On Saturday, he gave his team 7 ²/₃ shutout innings in a 4-0 victory over the Marlins at loanDepot park. Carrasco extended his scoreless streak over his past three starts to 18 ²/₃ innings.

The win was No. 100 in Carrasco’s career, making the 35-year-old the eighth Venezuelan-born pitcher to reach the milestone. Carrasco last surrendered a run on July 9 against the Marlins at Citi Field.

The Mets (63-37) won their fifth straight and reached the 100-game mark with the franchise’s most victories since 1986.

Overall, Carrasco allowed four hits and struck out seven with two walks. Seth Lugo replaced Carrasco in the eighth inning after Charles Leblanc had doubled with two outs. But Leblanc was picked off second base by Tomas Nido, ensuring Carrasco’s scoreless streak continued.

Lugo remained in the game to pitch a scoreless ninth inning, allowing Edwin Diaz a day off following a 10-pitch outing Friday in which he struck out the side.

The Mets will try for a three-game sweep of the reeling Marlins on Sunday with Taijuan Walker on the mound.

After scuffling at the plate for seven innings, the Mets gave Carrasco breathing room in the eighth when Francisco Lindor and J.D. Davis each blasted a solo homer to give the Mets a 4-0 lead. Davis’ homer, in a pinch-hitting appearance, came as the Mets are searching on the trade market for a right-handed bat to solidify the DH spot.

The Mets have traded for two lefty bats in the last week-plus to bolster the other half of the DH equation. One of those additions, Tyler Naquin, debuted for the Mets on Saturday in left field and went 0-for-4. Daniel Vogelbach started at DH and drew a walk in four plate appearances.

Carrasco’s gem was the latest strong performance by a Mets starting pitcher. Entering play, the Mets had a 2.45 ERA from the starting rotation in July, which ranked second in the major leagues. Chris Bassitt had a rare flat start for the Mets a night earlier, when he allowed four earned runs over six innings.

Jeff McNeil hit a solo homer in the third against rookie Nick Neidert to give the Mets their first run. The homer was the first since June 14 for McNeil, who entered the day with a .162/.240/.191 slash line in July.

The Mets weren’t finished in the inning: Nido, Brandon Nimmo and Lindor all singled. Lindor’s hit extended the Mets’ lead to 2-0 and gave the shortstop 68 RBIs for the season before he reached 69 with his blast later.

Carrasco was challenged in the first inning, when he allowed a single to Miguel Rojas and walk to Jesus Aguilar before retiring JJ Bleday for the final out. In the fourth, Carrasco surrendered a leadoff single, but he escaped the inning when he got Bleday to ground into a double-play.

Career NYC criminal tries to steal moped from NYPD station

Published

on

By



A brazen career criminal with more than 50 arrests on his rap sheet, including rape, was busted for trying to steal a moped from outside a lower Manhattan police station.

Jon Matos was caught red-handed approaching the $1,200 bike outside the 5th Precinct, sources said.

He was allegedly using a set of burglary tools Friday to try to bust the lock of the bike, which was vouchered property, cops and sources said.

Matos, a homeless father of three, was arraigned in Manhattan Criminal Court on charges of attempted grand larceny and possession of burglary tools.

The proceeding was delayed for hours, sources said, after Matos allegedly became angry with a cellmate who used the facilities — but didn’t courtesy flush.

“I was just f–king with it. It’s not my tools,” he allegedly told an NYPD detective, said Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Megan Mers during the court proceeding.

Judge Valentina Morales Saturday agreed to give Matos supervised release in the moped case.

“Thank you, your honor,” Matos told Morales.

But instead of hitting the streets once again, Matos was held on outstanding charges from the 23rd Precinct in an unrelated case, authorities said.

It was his second appearance before a judge in a week: Matos was in court days earlier, charged with grand larceny, petit larceny, and criminal possession of stolen property and was released in yet another incident.

Matos has racked up dozens of busts for burglary, robbery, fare evasion — including the 1999 rape of a 14-year-old girl.

Crime is up in six of the seven major crimes measured by the department contributed to the increase — though the seventh category, murders, dropped a noticeable 31.6% last month in comparison to numbers compiled in June 2021, according to the NYPD’s preliminary statistics.

Grand larceny spiked 41%, robbery rose 36.1% and burglary went up 33.8%.

When addressing the crime spike last month, NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell said the department was arresting the same people for crimes “over and over again.”

Other recent and brazen repeat offenders include veteran shoplifter Isaac “Man of Steal” Rodriguez, who was finally locked up in January after dozens of arrests for stealing to support his drug habit.

Laron Mack, whose catchphrase is “I steal for a living,” has been arrested more than 50 times. Another serial stealer, James Connelly, was busted in December for involvement in 28 separate incidents over three months.

Last month, accused serial shoplifter Lorenzo McLucas, 34, was nabbed for stealing from the cosmetics counter at a Duane Reade on Lexington Avenue in Midtown Manhattan, according to cops and court documents.

McLucas, who was released on his own recognizance, has notched 122 prior arrests.
