Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
A pair of 1-6 squads square off when the Texans visit the Jaguars this coming Sunday. Jacksonville more or less expected to be a disaster on the field this season, but Houston likely expected more success. The Texans’ passing game is still strong, despite trading star wideout DeAndre Hopkins to Arizona for RB David Johnson in March. The Texans average of 282.7 passing yards per game is good enough for fifth-most in the NFL. Jacksonville has the second-worst defense in the NFL, and hasn’t won since Week 1. The Jaguars are expected to start rookie QB Jake Luton in place of Gardner Minshew. Houston’s only win of 2020 came in Week 5 vs this very same Jaguars team, and the season sweep will be completed on Sunday. Texans 38, Jaguars 23
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans come from their bye week. Prior to that, the Texans scored 30+ points in two of their last three games. In general, the Texans average 23.7 points per game and the total has gone over in four of Houston’s last five games on the road.
The Jacksonville Jaguars also come from their bye week and they will have a new QB under center. Rookie Jake Luton will replace Gardner Minshew (injured). The Jaguars average 22 points per game and the total has gone under in their last five games against the Texans.
In Week 5, the Texans beat the Jaguars 30-14. Go under once again.
