Betting Line Shifting In Jaguars Favor Amid Justin Herbert Injury Concerns

It's been eight days since Justin Herbert sustained a very painful looking rib injury in Thursday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Yet with the Jacksonville Jaguars less than 48 hours away from their third week of stints, Herbert's position is completely up in the air.

This is a problem for many people who bet on sports.

While the Chargers are still the moneyline favorites against the Jaguars,

In the last few days the spread has reduced a lot.

The Chargers opened as seven-point favorites but are now only favored by a field goal.

ProFootballTalk notes that a four-point change in spread usually does not occur unless the quarterback is injured.

And Herbert is now listed as "doubtful" for Sunday's game.

Justin Herbert suffered a fractured rib cartilage last week against the Chiefs.

While the injury is unlikely to cause any serious damage,

Many people have reported that this type of injury causes pain that can last for several months.

At the time, it was believed that as long as he was managing his pain, Herbert could return to full strength within a few days.

But with the point changing and its position no longer fixed,

It doesn't seem so now.

Will Justin Herbert be in full force against the Jaguars this weekend? Will he play at all?
