NFL odds and lines 2013, Week 3: Jaguars vs. Seahawks

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks are overwhelming favorites to blow out the lowly Jaguars this week.

The Seattle Seahawks host the Jacksonville Jaguars in what could be an ugly matchup. The Seahawks are massive 19.5-point favorites, according to Oddsshark. It could end up being the most lopsided betting line of the season.

The reasons for the huge spread should be obvious -- these teams are heading in completely opposite directions. The Seahawks are arguably the best team in football, coming off a 29-3 win over the San Francisco 49ers and staying home in a hostile environment. The big concern is that left tackle Russell Okung is out with a torn toe ligament.

The Jaguars, on the other hand, might be the worst team in football. Their quarterback situation is a complete mess and they failed to score an offensive touchdown until the fourth quarter of the second game. On top of that, Maurice Jones-Drew is hobbled with an injury.

Last week, the Seahawks were three-point favorites over the 49ers and easily covered. The Jaguars were 3.5-point underdogs to the Oakland Raiders and failed to cover that spread, falling 19-9.
