Before betting any NFL props for Thursday Night Football in Week 7 or entering selections on sites like PrizePicks, you need to see the Jaguars vs. Saints NFL prop predictions powered by SportsLine AI.
Built using cutting-edge artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques by SportsLine’s Data Science team, AI Predictions and AI Ratings are generated for each player prop. The AI predictions are determined by statistically learning from each player’s historical data and then quantitatively evaluating the strength of the opponents defense by assigning a numeric value out of 100 called a matchup score.
Once a prediction is formulated, the AI rating is generated using the prediction, the matchup score, and the odds of the market. For example, you could see a 5-star rating on an over bet if a player is facing a poor defense, their prediction differs from the line and there are favorable odds.
In addition, SportsLine AI is the first fully automated predictive model at SportsLine. It continuously refreshes with the most recent available data and can help you spot the biggest discrepancies in the lines. So far this season, SportsLine AI has hit a whopping 284 4.5- and 5-star prop picks for a strong profit of $452 for $100 players.
For Saints vs. Jaguars on Thursday Night Football, the model has evaluated the NFL player prop odds and provided Jaguars vs. Saints prop picks for every available prop market. You can only see the AI player prop predictions for New Orleans vs. Jacksonville here.
Top NFL player prop bets for Saints vs. Jaguars
After analyzing Jaguars vs. Saints and examining the dozens of NFL player prop markets, SportsLine AI says Saints running back Alvin Kamara goes under 53.5 rushing yards. Now in his seventh season, Kamara served a three-game suspension and New Orleans has taken advantage of fresh legs since his return, supplying him with at least 24 touches per game.
However, 23 of his 75 touches during that three-week span have been receptions and this looks like a game in which the majority of his workload could be through the air against a dominant Jaguars run defense. Jacksonville ranks third in the NFL in rushing yards allowed (452) and only two backs have managed over 53.5 yards so far this season (Isiah Pacheco and Bijan Robinson).
The Jaguars have held running backs to just 341 total rushing yards on the season and over the last two weeks have held Jonathan Taylor to 19 yards rushing and James Cook to minus-4. Expect Kamara to spend time playing on the outside and sneaking out of the backfield on routes as New Orleans attempts to take advantage of a Jacksonville pass defense that ranks 31st.
