NFL Football Betting: HOU Texans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

The AFC South will be on display in a divisional NFL football betting showdown on Sunday when the Texans (0-2, 0-2 ATS) clash with the Jaguars (1-2, 1-2 ATS).

Kickoff from the Sunshine State is set for 1:00 PM and football betting fans can catch the game regionally on CBS. Since joining the league in 2002, the Texans have dominated this rivalry, going 7-5 SU and 9-3 ATS against the Jags. The Texans appear to be a demoralized team after Hurricane Ike forced them into an early bye week in the second week of the regular season.

As for last week, NFL betting fanatics who backed the Texans were bitterly disappointed with their 31-12 defeat at the hands of the Tennessee Titans. Even though they found themselves down 14-12 late in the 2nd quarter, they couldn’t capitalize on any of their red zone chances in the second half, thus, couldn’t stay within the 4.5-points set on the football betting line.

QB Matt Schaub was awful, throwing three interceptions and only completing 17-of-37 passes. The only bright spot was RB Steve Slaton, who ran for 118 yards and his first career touchdown.

With the Jags staring a potential 0-3 start to the season in the face, QB David Garrard generated the game-winning drive that Jacksonville needed to knock off the Indianapolis Colts 23-21 last Sunday afternoon.

Though the Jags were at least even with the NFL betting line of 4-points the entire second half, the only aspect of football betting that was in doubt at the end of the game was the ‘total’. K Josh Scobee’s 51-yard field goal not only gave the Jaguars a much-needed victory, but sent those who bet on the over 41.5-points to the betting windows to cash their tickets.

Both RB’s Maurice Jones-Drew and Fred Taylor gashed the Colts defense, combining for 228 rushing yards on 45 carries. Oddsmakers have installed the Jags as 7.5-point favorites with the ‘total’ coming in at 41.5. is your home for all of the great football betting action.
