According to oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu, the Texans are 6.5-point home favorites over the Jaguars after opening as 6-point favorites. As for the total, it opened at 45 before jumping to 45.5.

A whopping 77% of bettors are currently backing the Texans to cover the 6.5-point spread in today's game. Houston is 8-7 on the year and 8-7 against the spread, while Jacksonville is 5-10 straight up and 7-7 at the betting window.

Even though Brandon Weeden played well the past two weeks for the banged-up Texans, Houston's offense will get a boost today when Brian Hoyer returns for the first time since suffering two concussions in less than a month. The Jaguars were just torched by the Saints for 38 points on the road last week and while the Texans don't posses that same firepower, Houston will score plenty today.

Even though the Jaguars racked up plenty of points themselves last week in New Orleans, they won't find the end zone as easily today against Houston's defense. With the Texans needing one last win to wrap up the AFC South for good, look for them to win big and cover the 6.5 points.
