Consecutive losses have cost the Jacksonville Jaguars the lead in the AFC South division, as they trail the surging Indianapolis Colts by one game heading in to their season finale against the Houston Texans.

Online Sports Betting Odds: Jacksonville – 2.5

The Colts have won three straight to slide past the Jaguars in to first place, but if Jacksonville can top Houston, and the Tennessee Titans can manage to take down Indianapolis, then head coach Jack Del Rio’s team will get through in a tiebreaker. Those circumstances would leave the Jaguars and Colts will be tied for the top spot in the AFC South, but that Jacksonville would get through on the basis of a tiebreaker based on a better record against the division.

Why To Bet On The Jaguars

Running back Maurice Jones Drew has once again taken his team on his back and turned Jacksonville in to a contender with 1234 rushing yards and five touchdowns this season, leading a running game that ranks fourth in the league with 146.5 yards per game. Jones-Drew was at his best the first time these teams met, a 31-24 Jaguars’ win in which he rushed for 100 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries.

Quarterback David Garrard also played a key role in that game against the league’s worst pass defense, throwing for 342 yards and two touchdowns, with 149 of those going to Mike Thomas who also grabbed a score. Jacksonville has lost consecutive games for the third time this season, but has never lost three in a row and should be set to bounce back with their playoff hopes on the line.

Why To Bet On The Texans

After a promising 4-2 start to the season, things have fallen apart for Houston. The Texans have lost four in a row and eight of their last nine to fall in to the AFC South basement, and their could be major changes on the horizon for a franchise that has never made the postseason. However, despite how bad they’ve been Houston is 3-4 at home this season, and has the chance to finish at .500 in games played in front of the Reliant Stadium crowd.

Quarterback Matt Schaub leads an offense that ranks in the top-10 in both the run and pass games, and if they can manage to play mistake-free football this team is talented enough to close the year with a football betting win. Stopping Jones-Drew will be key on defense, but it will mean little if the league’s worst pass defense can’t stop Garrard.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Jaguars head to Houston with their playoff hopes on the line, and for a team with a minus-49 point differential, that’s a surprise. Still, Jacksonville has taken advantage of a relatively soft schedule in order to remain in the AFC playoff race, and that won’t change this week against another sub-.500 team.
