NFL Week Ten Predictions - Houston vs. Jacksonville NFL Picks & Vegas Odds: Two teams looking to rise in their division square off in a NFL week ten predictions contest as the Houston Texans (4-4) versus the Jacksonville Jaguars (4-4) in an AFC South divisional game in week ten of the NFL betting season. Since 2001, these two teams have played evenly, with the NFL picks series tied at 8-8, and the Vegas odds reflect that balance, giving the home standing Jags a -1(-120) point NFL predictions edge.
Are the Jaguars contenders or pretenders? As their NFL picks record, indicates, Jacksonville has had an up-and-down NFL predictions season, surprising teams such as the Colts and Cowboys and getting creamed by Tennessee, Kansas City, and San Diego. The Jaguars have surrendered 26 or more points six times in eight NFL picks contests and, as a result, the defense is ranked in the bottom of many categories. The Jags have 14 sacks and just eight interceptions and opponents have torched them for 17 TD passes against and an average of 267.1 yards per game against. Against a Houston team that likes to fling the ball, that is not a good sign. The Jags have used four quarterbacks this NFL predictions season and, when he has been on the field, David Garrard was not looked too bad, with 13 TD passes, including a big day against Dallas last outing. As usual, the team can run the ball with Maurice Jones-Drew doing the bulk of the work.
Houston, after a hot start to the NFL predictions season, has lost three of their last four NFL picks contests and needs a win badly if they want to stay in playoff contention. After finishing near the bottom in rushing yardage a year ago, the Texans boast the NFL’s #1 rusher in Adrian Foster, who, with 864 yards and 9 TDs, shows no signs of slowing. Jacksonville has contained the rush but they’ll have their hands full with Foster. Matt Schaub has passed for over 2,000 yards but has only 10 TD passes to his credit. He could have some success against the Jags but he’ll need to keep-up since his own defensive secondary is ranked at the very bottom in pass defense, allowing almost 300 yards passing per game.
The over/under NFL odds on this game is 49½( ov-110) so take the over since points will be scored. Houston has had trouble keeping the score down, the lowest number of points they have allowed is 24, twice, so looking for a high-scoring affair with Houston covering the Vegas spread and squeezing out a late NFL predictions victory on the road.
