The Houston Texans have lost eight straight games after starting the season 2-0, while the Jacksonville Jaguars are a lowly 1-9 on the year. Houston is coming off a loss to an Oakland Raiders team with an undrafted free agent at quarterback. Jacksonville also continued to play poorly, losing to the Arizona Cardinals at home in Week 11. Despite their similarly shoddy records, the folks in Vegas are favoring the Texans heavily at home.
Houston is a 10-point favorite against the Jaguars, according to OddsShark. The over/under is 43 for the Week 12 matchup. The Texans and the Jaguars are among the league's bottom-dwellers, so an average of 21.5 points for each team might be a bit generous. Jacksonville has struggled to score points, while Houston's had trouble staying consistent on both sides of the ball.
The Texans will host the Jaguars on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
