The Texans continue to find ways to lose games and are in danger of falling out of the playoff race while the Jaguars are not in much better shape in NFL betting.
Bet on football last week saw the Texans lose against the Indianapolis Colts for the second time this season. It was another example of the Texans losing focus and blowing a game. They had a 17-point lead and not only lost but failed to cover the NFL betting number. The Texans have lost three straight and they continue to find ways to give games away. "This isn't the first time this has happened to us," wide receiver Andre Johnson said, "It's just real frustrating. I'm very upset with myself. It's kind of sounding like a broken record; we've just got to find a way to play for four quarters." Matt Schaub was 31 of 42 for 284 yards with two TDs and two interceptions in the bet on football loss. If the Texans lose this game at Jacksonville on Sunday they can effectively forget about making the playoffs and it could spell the end for head coach Gary Kubiak. "We've been really, really good and then poor in some situations, so it's my job to find some consistency," Kubiak said.
Jacksonville is coming off a poor 20-3 bet on football loss to San Francisco last week. Maurice Jones-Drew was held to 75 yards and Jacksonville’s offense did very little. It didn’t help that kicker Josh Scobee missed two easy field goals.
Houston still has some good NFL betting trends:
The Texans are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in December.
The Texans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games.
The Texans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings at Jacksonville.
On the other hand:
The Jaguars are 4-9 in NFL betting in their last 13 vs. the AFC.
The Jaguars are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in December.
The Jaguars are 2-11 vs. bet on football odds in their last 13 home games.
The Jaguars are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games overall.
Four of the last four Houston road games have gone under the bet on football number. Many of the Houston divisional games have gone over though. 19 of their last 26 vs. the AFC South have gone over. In this bet on football series, four of the last five games have gone over the total.
