The Jacksonville Jaguars are closing in on the record for consecutive games as NFL underdogs and they get seven points to work with here in Week 14.

This is the 41st straight game that Vegas oddsmakers and those at online shops such as Bovada have made the Jaguars underdogs. The longest streak in the Odds Shark database is 43 games by the St. Louis Rams, who were not favored between Dec 9, 2007 and Oct 24, 2010 inclusively.

The Jags picked up their second win of the season last Sunday as a home underdog against the New York Giants and will try to pick up another upset at home this Sunday hosting the Houston Texans.

Houston is just 1-2 SU and 0-3 ATS over its last three games against Jacksonville since going 4-0 SU and ATS over the previous four games between the two teams. The UNDER is 7-2 over Houston's last nine divisional games and 8-2 over Jacksonville's last 10 divisional games.

If you wondered which NFL team has the longest streak of games as a favorite, that was also the St. Louis Rams. The Greatest Show on Turf era team featuring Kurt Warner and Marshall Faulk was favored 57 consecutive times from Oct 3, 1999 to Sept 29, 2002 inclusively.
