  • The Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1 SU, 1-1 ATS) are just 1-9 SU and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games against the Houston Texans (0-2 SU, 0-2 ATS). The Jaguars will look to buck that trend when they host the Texans as big home favorites in Jacksonville this Sunday afternoon.

    Jacksonville is 7-2 SU and ATS in its last nine games including a 31-3 blowout win on the road against Houston. The Texans are just 2-12 SU and 5-9 ATS in their last 14 games after opening this season with a pair of losses. The UNDER is 7-3 in the last 10 games between these two AFC South rivals.

    Latest Betting Notes: Texans

    Houston fell into a 28-10 hole by halftime and was unable to climb out of it in a 31-20 loss to the Indianapolis Colts as 1-point home favorites last Sunday. C.J. Stroud played great in the loss going 30-for-47 with 384 passing yards, two passing touchdowns and no interceptions. Nico Collins was his favorite target, finishing the day with seven catches for 146 yards and a touchdown.

    The Texans enter this matchup with a 5-15 SU record in their last 20 games on the road. Houston’s defense has allowed 25 points or more in eight of the team’s last nine games and has given up an average of 29.5 points per game in the Texans’ last four games.

    Latest Betting Notes: Jaguars

    Jacksonville couldn’t get things going on offense on Sunday in a disappointing 17-9 loss at home to the Kansas City Chiefs as 3-point underdogs. Trevor Lawrence went 22-for-41 with only 216 passing yards and no touchdown passes in the loss, and Travis Etienne Jr. recorded just 40 rushing yards on 12 carries. It was a surprisingly flat effort for a Jaguars team looking to avenge its loss in the playoffs to the Chiefs last season.

    The Jaguars are 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS in their last three games as a favorite since going 0-7 SU and ATS in their previous 10 games as one. Jacksonville is 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in its last five home games against the Texans.

    The Keys to Victory: Texans

    C.J. Stroud is off to an impressive start in his rookie campaign. The second overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft has done a good job of spreading the ball around through his first two starts and has yet to throw an interception. Even facing a solid Jaguars defense on the road, Stroud should be able to help the Texans produce some offense.

    But to have any shot at covering the spread or pulling off an outright upset, Houston will need to have a big game on defense. The Texans did manage to hold Trevor Lawrence to no touchdown passes and three interceptions in their two games against the Jaguars last year, so backers will be hoping for more of the same in this one.

    The Keys to Victory: Jaguars

    This Jaguars offense came into the 2023 season with tons of hype thanks to the progression of Trevor Lawrence and the addition of former star wideout Calvin Ridley. Jacksonville lived up to the hype in its 31-21 road win against Indianapolis in Week 1, but fizzled out badly in last week’s test against the defending champion Chiefs.

    What version of Lawrence and the Jaguars offense will show up this week? This team has enough talent and a clear enough edge on defense to win outright at home even without their best effort, but covering this large spread is going to require a productive day on offense.
