The Raiders are 3-0 straight up in the HOF Game; Jacksonville is 0-1

Historically, the Las Vegas Raiders have produced more NFL Hall of Famers than the Jacksonville Jaguars. They’ve also proven to be much more productive in the NFL Hall of Fame Game.

These AFC rivals are clashing in the 2022 NFL Hall of Fame Game, the annual even that both welcomes the new inductees to the Hall and also ushers in the NFL preseason. It’s the fourth appearance in the HOF Game for the Raiders. Not only are they 3-0 straight up, they’ve won the game while situated in each of their previous homes.

They won as the Oakland Raiders in 1979 and 2006 and as the Los Angeles Raiders in 1993. Jacksonville is 0-1 in the game. The Jaguars lost 20-14 to the Carolina Panthers in 1995 in what was the first-ever NFL game for both clubs.

Oddsmakers are leaning toward the Raiders maintaining their perfect status in the game. Las Vegas is set as 2-point favorites over the Jaguars. Jacksonville is 1-7 SU over the club’s past eight preseason games.

Kickoff for the NFL Hall of Fame Game at Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium is set for 8pm ET on Thursday, August 4. The weather forecast is predicting rain, 6 mph wind and a temperature of 78 degrees. NBC is carrying the broadcast of the game.

At odds of -135, the Raiders are offering an implied probability of victory of 57.45% in the MLB betting line. A successful $10 wager on San Diego would deliver a payout of $17.40.

In the NFL betting trends, it’s the Raiders and the under drawing the large proportion of the action. The public is backing Las Vegas with 66% of spread bets and 72% of moneyline wagers. There’s a whopping 80% of the action on the total supporting under 30.5 points.

66% of the bets placed against the spread are on the Raiders -2.5; the moneyline splits show 72% of the moneyline bets are on the Raiders at -142 odds; 80% of the public bets are on the Under (30.5).

The Raiders are +4000 in the Super Bowl odds, while Jacksonville is +13000.

Jaguars Going With Third-String Quarterback

Jacksonville coach Doug Pederson was announcing earlier this week that Jaguars starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence won’t be seeing any action in this game. The sophomore QB was the first player chosen in the 2021 NFL Draft. Lawrence was the starter for all 17 Jacksonville games as a rookie.

Doug Pederson said Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence and RB Travis Etienne won’t play in the Hall of Fame Game Thursday. Jake Luton starts at QB.

Both Lawrence and Etienne have had a good starting to training camp with natural chemistry.

Jacksonville is also without second-stringer CJ Beathard. He’s nursing a groin injury. That means Jake Luton, the  #3 QB on the depth chart, will be taking the majority of the offensive snaps for the Jaguars.

As well, those hoping to finally see second-year running back Travis Etienne in action for Jacksonville will also be playing the waiting game. Etienne missed his entire rookie season with a Lisfranc injury. Currently, though, he’s battling an illness that will be keeping him on the sideline.

Happy Homecoming For Raiders Coach McDaniels

Josh McDaniels will be taking the helm of the Raiders in a game for the first time in familiar surroundings. He played his high school football for Canton McKinley in Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium.

Does that give the new coach a home-field advantage? Well, his entire family, including his dad and high school coach Thom McKinley, will be in attendance.

You can figure to see plenty of Jarrett Stidham and Nick Mullens, the backup QBs for the Raiders.

Raiders vs Jaguars Hall of Fame Game Prediction

Emotion isn’t generally a significant factor in a preseason game, but that’s not the case here. The Raiders are a perfect 3-0 in the Hall of Fame Game. This is the childhood home of McDaniels. On top of that, former Raiders stars Cliff Branch and Richard Seymour are being enshrined in Canton.

Consider also that both Las Vegas backup QBs, Stidham and Mullens, have NFL starting experience. Jacksonville is going with the inexperienced Luton from the outset and QB play only figures to get worse from there.

Take the Raiders and lay the points.

Pick: Los Angeles Raiders -2 (-110).
