Texans vs Jaguars - Week 6 Odds & Pick

Brian Hoyer Houston Texans

The Houston Texans have been a quarterback carousel this season and Week 6’s clash with the Jacksonville Jaguars will once again feature a different signal caller, as head coach Bill O’Brien has opted to pull the struggling Ryan Mallett in favor of journeyman Brian Hoyer.

Shark Bites
  • The Texans are 7-2 SU in their last nine games against the Jaguars.
  • The Jaguars are 1-5 SU and ATS in their last six games at home in October.
  • The Jaguars do not have a single rushing touchdown this season.

Both clubs are sitting in the basement of the AFC South with identical 1-4 SU records largely due in part to some poor defensive play. Jacksonville has allowed opposing offenses to collect 145 points against them, while Houston isn’t faring much better at 135. Jags fans and bettors alike will feel much more secure about their quarterback situation, however, as the promising Blake Bortles has made solid strides in his second year in the league (10 touchdowns, four interceptions).

Houston is just 1-4 ATS in the campaign but have been a more reliable play for OVER bettors, as the OVER/UNDER has gone 3-1-1 through their first five games.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

Odds at sportsbooks such as Bovada had the Jacksonville Jaguars pegged as 0-point in this betting matchup. The total, meanwhile, was listed by books like TopBet at 43.
