Our picks for Texans vs. Jaguars
Pick against the spread: HOU +4
The Jaguars are a dumpster fire and head coach Urban Meyer is waving around a can of gasoline. Each week it seems that the wrong offensive gameplan is instituted and the Jags make you question how they even won the games they have. The Texans aren’t in a much better situation, but I think they are in a slightly better space at this time and their offense is at least working properly. Give me the Texans.
Over/under: UNDER 39.5
When these teams met in Week 1, the game ended with the Texans winning 37-21, putting up a combined 58 points. I don’t think we see that kind of offensive explosion in this game and it is going to be ugly. Neither team has scored more than 14 points in any of their last three games. Yuck.
Preferred player prop: James Robinson anytime TD (+105)
There is not a lot to like about this game from a player prop standpoint. However, one prop that may be good to play is James Robinson anytime TD. The Jags will be facing a Texans’ defense that has allowed the second-most rushing touchdowns (22) in the NFL this season, behind the likes of the New York Jets. With Urban Meyers not on the sidelines, we should expect to see a ton of carries for the second-year running back.
