Jacksonville Jaguars @ Houston Texans – Sunday November 18, 2012 1:00PM EST

The online sportsbook experts are always fascinated by the games that put the very best of a division up against the very worst. Few divisions have the best team and the worst team as well defined as the AFC South. The very best of the AFC South is the Houston Texans. The Texans may be the very best in all of the AFC as its 8-1 record is a testament to the massive improvements that the team has made from last year to this year. Last year, Houston was considered to be a playoff contender with a bright future. This year, the Texans is considered to be a Super Bowl contender that should be carrying the AFC flag into February.

The football betting experts did not expect a lot from the Jacksonville Jaguars, and that is exactly what they wound up getting. The Jags represent the very worst of the AFC South and nothing in Jacksonville is going to get better. The team is still without star running back Maurice Jones-Drew, who was injured earlier in the season. Now the team is not sure if quarterback Blaine Gabbert will be able to play in this game or if the team will have to turn to backup Chad Henne. Considering how well Henne played in relief of Gabbert last week, it may not be such a bad thing if Jacksonville had to hand the ball to Henne for this game.

Why the Texans Will Win

If the Houston Texans do not beat you with its passing game, then it will run the ball and beat you that way. In this game, fans can expect an aerial attack from quarterback Matt Schaub and wide receiver Andre Johnson. Running back Arian Foster will chip in with 100+ yards, but it will be an aerial display from the Texans. The Houston defense will be able to neutralize the Jags’ passing game and eliminate the remnants of the Jacksonville running game. This should be a pretty one-sided game.

Why the Jaguars Will Win

The sports betting experts stopped believing that the Jaguars could win games when Maurice Jones-Drew was injured. The Jags do not have a deep threat in the passing game that will keep the Texans at bay, but Jacksonville can play a short passing game that will keep the ball away from the Houston defense and keep the Houston offense off the field. It will be a tall task, but it would be Jacksonville’s only chance of winning this game.

The Bottom Line

Houston does not necessarily need to play a possession game to beat the Jaguars. The Texans can lose the time of possession battle in this game and still win the game. It will all come down to how well the Houston defense can handle the Jacksonville offense, and that will be a battle that will tip in Houston’s favor.

Pick: Houston Texans
