Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Houston Texans: Betting Odds
Spread: Jacksonville -1, Over/under: 47 points, Jacksonville -115 | Houston -105
The Jaguars opened as slight favorites on the road here to Houston thanks to their convincing 34-14 win over the Tennessee Titans in Week 11. It was a much-needed win for a Jacksonville team that had just gotten their doors blown off by San Francisco the week prior.
The Jaguars are now 7-3 and in first place in the AFC South.
Trevor Lawrence had the best game of his season, by far, throwing for two touchdowns and rushing in two more, taking advantage of Tennessee’s vulnerable secondary. Houston has had some issues slowing down the pass, so Lawrence may be able to build on that performance here.
