Bet on football results have been disappointing on Jacksonville this season even though the Jaguars covered their opening week. Jacksonville is 0-2 and the season could easily slip away if they don’t get a win this week at Houston. It is also a key game for the Texans as they bounced back last week to upset Tennessee in bet on football results.
Bet on football with Jacksonville is tough since the Jaguars are hearing criticism from everywhere. Head coach Jack Del Rio wants his players to ignore the criticism. “When you’re 0-2, there are a lot of naysayers that’ll have their opinions, but we can’t pay attention to that,” Del Rio said, “If we had started 2-0, we wouldn’t be getting these questions.” The Jaguars have a number of bet on football problems including quarterback David Garrard who has a 72.7 passer rating. He is 37-of-71 for 404 yards passing with two touchdowns and one interception.
Houston was great on offense last week as quarterback Matt Schaub and wide receiver Andre Johnson had huge games. The Texans will look to continue their success this week against the Jaguars. The NFL bet trends definitely don’t favor Jacksonville in this game. The Jaguars are 3-7 versus the bet on football pointspread in their last 10 games in September. The Jaguars are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog. The Jaguars are 1-4 in bet on football in their last 5 vs. AFC South.
The Texans are 4-0 in bet on football in their last 4 vs. AFC South. The Texans are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 NFL bet games overall. Houston has owned Jacksonville at home of late as they are 6-1 versus the NFL bet odds in the last 7 meetings in Houston against the Jaguars.
Many of the bet on football trends for the total point to Sunday’s game going under. The Under is 5-0 in the Jaguars last 5 games as a road underdog, 6-1-1 versus the bet on football number in the Jaguars last 8 vs. the AFC, and 5-1 in the Texans last 6 vs. the AFC. The Under is 6-2 in the Texans last 8 bet on football games overall. The one thing that points to an over is that the Texans have gone over the bet on football total in 19 of their last 26 versus the AFC South.
