NFL Pick: Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars
- Updated: December 4, 2013
The Sunday night football schedule has a flex program where they can pick and choose the games that they want to televise. The Thursday night football schedule may want to consider doing the same thing as this week’s game looks like it has the potential to be a bummer. The Houston Texans and the Jacksonville Jaguars are two of the worst teams in the league and instead of fighting for the division they are fighting for the first round draft pick.
The NFL odds for this game have the Texans listed as three point chalk for this game despite the fact that they bring in a lengthy losing streak. The Jaguars are playing much better football but 70 percent of the early wagers are still n the road team for this televised event. The line has yet to move but could easily shift so make sure to check your latest sportsbook before placing a wager on this game.
The Texans are playing better but it was not enough to beat the New England Patriots. The Texans’ franchise-record skid reached 10 games. Gary Kubiak coached from the sideline for the first time since suffering a mini-stroke Nov. 3. He missed one game before working the last two games from the booth. The Texans had a chance late, but the offense stalled. Ben Tate ran for 102 yards and three touchdowns for the Texans, who haven’t won since Sept. 15. They will need to run the ball if they have any hopes of beating the Jags.
The latest football betting trends for this game reveal just how far both teams have fallen. Houston is 2-4 straight up in its last 6 games when playing on the road against Jacksonville but from a betting stand point Jacksonville is 2-4 against the spread (ATS) in its last 6 games when playing Houston.
