NFL Predictions - Jets vs. Texans Week 11 NFL Picks & Vegas Odds: The past two weeks, the New York Jets (7-2) have escaped with NFL predictions victories over the underdog Detroit Lions and Cleveland Browns in overtime, coming back from deficits to turn certain losses into NFL betting wins, and they’ll most certainly not want to test their luck again this week in a week 11 NFL predictions contest against the Houston Texans (4-5). Vegas odeds makers have once again installed the Jets as -7 point NFL predictions favorites at home in this intriguing match-up during week eleven of the NFL betting season.
The Jets are only 1-2 against the spread as home favorites but are tied with the New England Patriots for the best record in the AFC mainly because they know how to win their NFL picks match-ups, especially close contests. Four of their seven NFL predictions victories, in fact, have come by one score or less. The Jets have won mainly on the strength of their #4 ranked running game but, last week, quarterback Mark Sanchez found dynamic wide receiver Santonio Holmes for the winning score. If Holmes, who only has 20 catches on the season, can find some chemistry with Sanchez, this team could get even better.
No team in the NFL has given-up more passing yards than the Texans this season so Holmes could be in store for another big day. After starting the season at 2-0, the Texans have self-destructed, going 2-5, including last week’s incredible loss to the Jaguars on the last play of the game. Arian Foster has given the Texans a true ground game with 920 yards rushing but the Jets defense is tough against the run. If Houston is to pull the upset, quarterback Matt Schaub must have an impact. Schaub has thrown for more than 2,300 yards but he has only 12 TDs. The Jets have been susceptible to the pass, allowing 13 TD passes against just 5 INTs, but Schaub will need to look for receiver other than Andre Johnson to step-up and deliver in Sunday's NFL predictions contest.
The Texans are capable of an upset but this is a match-up that favors the physical, aggressive. Look for the Jets to cover the Vegas spread and build upon their AFC best record.
