TheSpread.com betting matchup advantage:
TheSpread.com betting matchup advantage has the Texas as a 3-point favorite, which is obviously right in line with what oddsmakers have. But we happen to think that Houston is a solid cover tonight. The Texas are 5-1 against the spread vs. Jacksonville sine 1992 and 2-0 straight up against the Jaguars in Houston the past three seasons. We suggest bucking the trend on the over, however. We feel as though the total will fall just shy of the 48 mark and predict the Texans over the Jaguars 27-20.
