  Jacksonville Jaguars vs Houston Texans 

 

Point Spread Value

The Texans continue to confound their fans, particularly on their travels. Well, until last week when they sent seismic shockwaves through NFL betting markets with an upset at Lucas Oil Stadium. It was a rare road win. In any event, they are back at NRG Stadium for week 15 and set to host the 2-11 SU Jaguars, who have nothing left to play for even pride it seems. The Jaguars are 5-8-0 ATS with a -7.5 losing margin and a -4.8 differential versus the spread. On the road, they are 3-3-0 ATS with a -9.3 losing margin and -4.4 differential versus the spread.

The Survivor

When push came to shove the Texans retained their position atop the AFC South pile. That’s something to hang one’s hat on as the NFL odds were certainly stacked against the Texans in week 14’s battle with the Colts. Seeing as they came away winners, it bodes well for a second straight win at home over their second divisional date in as many weeks. That and the Texans are 5-1 SU at home and a perfect 4-0 SU against divisional rivals.

Game Total

The Texans are 5-8-0 in O/U betting while the Jaguars are the complete opposite 8-5-0 in O/U betting. The differences between these two teams go from top to bottom. The defense in Houston is renowned and the offense is quite reliable at home. The Jaguars, meanwhile, seem to leak points left and right. Consider bookies roll out a rather low total it’s a nod to the Texans. In other words, Houston is expected to dictate play.
