When the sports books opened up this week, I was wondering how much the Houston Texans would be favored by as the Jacksonville Jaguars get set to head on the road once again as underdogs. Sure enough, once again the Jaguars open up with the biggest point spread in franchise history as 16-point underdogs on most books. It shouldn't be much of a surprise that the Texans are favored by so much, given the fact that they blew out the Jaguars in their first matchup at EverBank Field.
Looking for Jacksonville Jaguars tickets?
Not only that, but the Jaguars will now be without the services of Maurice Jones-Drew and will be on the road. Though, the Jaguars have played significantly better as a whole on the road than they have at EverBank Field. The Jaguars were also massive underdogs against the Green Bay Packers a few weeks ago, but were able to cover the spread on that game and actually had a chance to win.
I'm not so sure that will be the case on Sunday, however.
