Preview NFL Week 10: Texans vs Jaguars Odds Predictions

November 14th, 2010 by

texans vs jaguarsThe AFC South has surprisingly turned out to be the most competitive division in the NFL gambling action this season. Never before has this team had more than one or two legitimate playoff contenders but this season all four teams have shot at the post season. It remains the only division in the league that doesn’t have a team with a losing record.

The Houston Texans started off with the early lead in this division but have since fizzled a bit and now sport a 4-4 record. Likewise with the 4-4 Jacksonville Jags which has been treading water for most of the season, but QB David Garrard quietly putting together a fine season this team is poised to make a run.

Kickoff for this Sunday matchup is set for 1:05 Eastern Time and SBG Global Sportsbook opened with the Texans/Jags PK with an over/under total at 50.

This game is simply too close to call and as with most division rivalries in sports betting you can expect a tight game.

Both of these teams have struggled on defense and have been outscored by opponent by a considerable margin this year (Jags: 165-226; Texans 193-26). In fact, fans should not tune into this matchup expecting big stops as these two teams rank 29th and 30th in the league in defense.

The Jags are giving up 28.3 ppg and 386.3 ypg. The Texans are giving up 28.3 ppg and 399.5 ypg. On any given Sunday these could be the worst defenses in the league.

But these teams are more adept on the offensive side of the ball and we should see a high scoring game as the over/under indicates.

Defensively these teams are a wash and this game should boil down to a battle of offenses. This is a battle that the Texans win easily. Houston is averaging 24.1 ppg and have changed from high flying passing team to the 6th best rushing team in the NFL (136.5 ypg) behind the breakout season of the NFL’s leading rusher, RB Arian Foster.

The Jags simply don’t have the rush defense to slow down the A-Train and this game will be won in the trenches for the Texans who should win this NFL betting odds contest on the road.
