On a five-game winning streak, the Jacksonville Jaguars (9-8) will take on the Los Angeles Chargers (10-7) in the NFL’s Super Wild Card Weekend on Saturday. 

The Chargers lost star receiver Mike Williams to a back injury in the Week 18 loss against the Denver Broncos after coach Brandon Staley opted to play most of his starters. Staley said this week that Williams suffered a contusion but expects him to play against the Jaguars.

The game will be a battle between Trevor Lawrence of the Jaguars and Justin Herbert of the Chargers, two of the best young quarterbacks. 

Los Angeles leads the all-time series 9-4, but the Jaguars won on Sept. 25, 38-10.

Here’s everything you need from a betting perspective on the Chargers-Jaguars game, from the point spread, moneyline, total Over/Under and expert pick (odds via FOX Bet).

Pick via FOX Sports Betting Analyst Jason McIntyre:

Rematch of a Week 3 game that should have zero bearing on how you bet this one. Yes, Jacksonville won 38-10 at SoFI Stadium. But the spot was horrible for the Chargers as they were coming off a grueling loss to the rival Chiefs, and QB Justin Herbert was nursing injured ribs and played terribly. 

Possession receiver Keenan Allen did not play. During the game, the Chargers lost star tackle Rashawn Slater and edge rusher Joey Bosa, and the team was rattled. They came out of halftime looking crestfallen and were blown out in the second half. 

Jacksonville’s 30th-ranked pass defense will struggle to contain Justin Herbert, as this is a huge step-up in class from the QBs they’ve faced in the last six games.

If you’re looking at props, Keenan Allen might be your guy. Jacksonville’s slot corner is Tre Herndon, who was undrafted and graded out as 101st out of 104 corners at the position.

PICK: Chargers pick’em
