PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, the Texans are receiving 54% of the betting tickets and 67% of the money to cover the spread.

INJURY REPORT: Tom Savage is doubtful to play for the Texans after suffering a concussion last Sunday against the 49ers. That means T.J. Yates will draw the start this weekend in Jacksonville. Jelani Jenkins is also questionable with a concussion.

Leonard Fournette is currently probable with a quad injury although there are some reports that he might miss Sunday's game. Cam Robinson (back), Allen Hurns (ankle) and Telvin Smith (concussion) are all questionable.

OUR PREDICTION: The under is 5-1 in the Texans' last six games overall, is 4-1 in their last five divisional games, and is 7-3 in their last 10 road games. The under is also 19-7 in their last 26 games played in December and 9-4 in their last 13 road games versus a team with a winning home record.

On the other side, the under is 6-0 in the Jaguars' last six games versus conference foes, is 6-1 in their last seven games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game, and is 5-1 in their last six games versus a team with a losing record. In their last five divisional games, the under is also 4-1.
