Houston is now 1-4 and in danger of losing their season completely after falling to Indianapolis at home, while Jacksonville has the same record after losing a shootout to Tampa Bay.
Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -1 -105 at Pinnacle
This NFL odds have been all over the place since it opened as Jacksonville at -1, then down to a PK, then -1 and -2 to Houston. Then it was back down to -1 for the Texans, then -1.5 and it is now a PK as no one knows what to expect of this game. The Texans might be the biggest disappointment in the league right now as no one expected them to be Super Bowl champions, but losing to Indianapolis without Andrew Luck at home was a kick to the stomach. The Jaguars' three losses outside of the New England game have come by a combined 21 points, so they're going to give you everything you want and more.
The Texans held out a slew of players for various reasons on Thursday, but nothing on the injury report denotes that anyone will miss this game. WR Cecil Shorts returned to practice after injuring his shoulder, and he is probably their biggest worry, which is good news for the Texans.
QB Blake Bortles has been playing well over the last couple weeks, but his shoulder has been bothering him, although he did practice on Wednesday. WR Allen Hurns (leg) didn't practice, along with WR Marqise Lee (hamstring) and RB T.J. Yeldon (groin). The Jaguars can't afford to have many injuries at all.
The Texans have covered in just one of their last six games, but they're a decent 2-2-1 ATS in their last five games on the road. The Jaguars have covered in six of their last 10 games, and they're 3-2 ATS in their last five games at home.
The Jaguars are 3-7 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 meetings with Houston, who are 4-6 SU in their last 10 in Jacksonville, but 6-4 ATS.
