After opening the year with wins in four of their first six games before the bye week, the Houston Texans have dropped consecutive decisions to the Indianapolis Colts and San Diego Chargers to fall back to .500. Now head coach Gary Kubiak must take his team on the road for back-to-back road games, beginning this weekend at the division rival Jacksonville Jaguars.

NFL Betting: Houston Texans @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Online Sports Betting Odds: Jacksonville – 1.5

The Jaguars are coming off the bye week and looked good before their week of rest when they took down the Dallas Cowboys on the road 35-17. Jacksonville has returned to its roots as a tough running team that succeeds by not turning the ball over, and will now have to make the most of consecutive home games before heading on the road for three of their next four, including stops at the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts.

Why To Bet On The Texans?

Houston has lost both of its last two games to teams that won their divisions in the AFC last year, including dropping a 30-17 decision to the Colts that evened their season series, and last weekend’s loss to a desperate San Diego Chargers’ team. The offense put up totals of 17 and 23 in the defeats, and will need to find its rhythm again in order to make up for a defense that ranks in the bottom third of the league. Houston has struggled against the pass in particular, where they rank last in the betting on NFL. The Texans will need to put more of a focus on the running game early on, before going over the top with the pass.

Why To Bet On The Jaguars?

Despite not looking particularly strong in any one area on either side of the ball other than when running back Maurice Jones-Drew has the ball in his hands on offense, the Jaguars have continued to find ways to win games. The Jacksonville defense will need to pick up their play this week however, as the Jaguars have allowed less than 20 points in a game just twice, with both of those games being wins in which they allowed 17. The Jaguars have found ways to score while limiting turnovers, and should be able to force some of their own against a Texans’ team that could begin to force the issue a bit after dropping two straight.

How The Game Will Play Out

While the Jaguars are .500 and coming off a bye week, this is a team that has gotten by this season with a terrible defense and only mediocre offense. While opportunity has been kind to head coach Jack Del Rio and his players so far, this game may serve as a reality check as a determined Texans’ team comes in to EverBank field looking to end a two-game slide in an AFC South division clash.
