Texans vs Jaguars Best Bets

Texans vs Jaguars Pick, Prediction

Action Network NFL betting expert Brandon Anderson offers this prediction:

The Jaguars dominated the Texans in January, but Houston had won nine straight in this division rivalry before that.

Trevor Lawrence is 2-6 ATS as a favorite, including 0-4 as a favorite of four or more. Three of those four came against the Texans and were all outright losses as a heavy favorite.

The Texans are another Kitchen Sink team, and they're my favorite one on the slate.

It's been ugly for Houston so far, but it's not just the Texans' fault. Houston was missing four of its five offensive linemen Sunday plus both starting safeties, and this line reflects what the Texans have looked like through two weeks, but not what they can be healthy. We should get closer to that this week with stud LT Laremy Tunsil back and S Jimmie Ward finally making his debut.

Jacksonville ranks 31st in Pass Rush Win Rate, so C.J. Stroud should have time to stand and deliver, while Houston ranks seventh itself and could get after Trevor Lawrence behind an equally porous Jacksonville line. The Jaguars offense hasn't found its way with Press Taylor calling the plays, ranking bottom five in many advanced metrics. Houston has to have this to save its season. Kitchen Sink time.

Pick: Texans +8.5 (-110)

The One Stat to Know About Texans vs Jaguars
