Houston seeks eighth straight win against division rivals

The Houston Texans are 7-0 SU and 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven games against AFC South opponents. The Texans hope to continue their divisional dominance on Sunday when they visit the struggling Jacksonville Jaguars.

  • The visiting team is 7-2 ATS in its last nine games in this matchup.
  • The Texans are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games against the Jaguars.
  • The Texans are 6-0 SU and 5-0-1 ATS in their last six games after winning the previous game in a matchup.

Houston will be looking for its first road win of the season on Sunday as the Texans enter this game with an 0-3 SU and ATS record on the road in 2016. Brock Osweiler has thrown just one touchdown pass on the road this season and has a road passer rating of 58.9. In five home games, the Texans are 5-0 SU and 4-0-1 ATS and Osweiler has a passer rating of 83.2.

With last Sunday's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Jaguars picked up their second three-game losing streak of the season and fell to 2-6 SU on the year. Despite the disappointing straight-up record this year, the Jaguars have kept games close and have a 5-2 ATS record in seven games as an underdog.

Jacksonville is 0-6 SU in its last six games against teams with winning records.
