NFL Free Pick: JAC/HOU
The Monday Night Matchup in Week 14 pits the David Garrard and the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Sage Rosenfels and the Houston Texans.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Texans -3 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 48 total points.
Key Trend: The Jaguars are just 1-4 against the spread in their last six games when playing the Texans and 1-5 against the spread in their last six games when playing on the road against Houston.
Key Stat: The once proud running game of the Jaguars is averaging only 110.2 yards per game this season. Conversely, the Texans are averaging 114.1 yards per game on the ground thanks in large part to rookie Steve Slaton.
Game Outlook: Outside of romping the Lions on the road a couple of weeks ago, the Jaguars have done nothing. The Jags are just 1-5 straight up in their last six games and 1-5 against the spread. Houston at least shown fight over the last couple weeks, covering the spread in three of their last five games. The over might be the best play in this game. The over has covered in nine of Houston’s 11 games this year and four of the last six games when playing Jacksonville. We’re counting on the Jaguars to keep struggling and for the Texans to show fight at home on national TV.
