Houston and Jacksonville are headed in different directions


The Houston Texans are 1-6 SU and 3-4 ATS over their last seven games while the Jacksonville Jaguars are 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS over their last seven. The Jaguars hope that those trends will continue when they host the Texans this Sunday.

  • The favored team is 2-8 ATS in the last 10 games in this matchup.
  • The Texans are 7-3 SU and ATS in their last 10 games after consecutive losses.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Jaguars’ last seven games.

Jacksonville’s 30-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday brought the team’s record to 9-4 SU and 8-5 ATS on the season. This was a significant achievement for the Jaguars as they locked up their first winning season since 2007 just one year removed from a 3-13 SU campaign in 2016. The Jaguars are enjoying the benefits of that down year in the form of Leonard Fournette, who picked up his fifth career 100-yard rushing game and his eighth rushing touchdown in the win over Seattle.

With Deshaun Watson already sidelined for the year, the Texans lost their backup quarterback to a concussion in last Sunday’s 26-16 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. T.J. Yates has been named the starter for Sunday and he carried with him a career passer rating of 75.7 with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions. Houston has won six of its last seven games against Jacksonville.
