Jacksonville Jaguars are headed nowhere fast and a date with the Houston Texans looms daunting. Can Blake Bortles and the Jaguars avoid a fourth straight loss? Here’s our betting verdict complete with NFL picks.

 Houston Texans vs Jacksonville Jaguars


Point Spread Value

To say, Brock Osweiler and the Texans have struggled on the road this season is putting it mildly, They are 0-3 SU and ATS on the road with a shocking -21.0 losing margin and -16.2 differential versus the spread. Normally, that would be a point of concern. When a date with the hapless Jaguars looms on the horizon it’s quite the opposite. This is the kind of divisional matchup that will make Osweiler look like an elite quarterback. The defense should have a field day with Blake Bortles too. Texans are road faves for good reason, laying -1.5 with most sports betting outlets. Shade the Texans on your week 10 NFL picks.

The Survivor

The Texans may be winless on the road but they’ve had some tough assignments on their travels from the Patriots to the Vikings and Broncos. That’s no mean feat and, as such, it’s not surprising the Texans are 0-3 SU. The Jaguars are the first beatable team on their travels and that should go down well after the bye week. Jaguars are 1-3 SU at home but in reality the so-called home win came at Wembley when they beat the Colts 30-27. EverBank has yet to be treated to a winning performance. Hard to see it happening at the expense of the stout Texans defense.

Game Total

Blake Bortles can put up the yards and points but most of the time those are meaningless or come late in the game in garbage time. If the Texans defense is up for this divisional clash, Bortles will likely be rendered largely ineffective. Jaguars are 5-3-0 in O/U betting with just a +0.1 differential versus the total. The Texans are 3-5-0 in O/U betting with a -4.0 differential against the total. If the team that dictates play dictates the score, it’s likely the Texans will keep this a low-scoring game.
