The Jaguars can play spoiler for the Houston Texans, but Las Vegas doesn't seem to think it's going to happen.

Many Jacksonville Jaguars fans feel the team can finish strong and end the season on a high note, beating the Houston Texans on the road Sunday. Las Vegas bookies don't seem to see it that way however, as the Jaguars have been installed as 10.5 point underdogs, according to OddsShark.com.

In the last match up the Texans beat the Jaguars by 14 points, but 10 of those were scored late in the game to just hammer it home. The Texans were also limited offensively and the Jaguars turned the ball over and struggled rushing the ball.

While the Texans are coming off a 12 point win over the Baltimore Ravens, even with Case Keenum now at quarterback, I think this is a line the Jaguars can cover. The Ravens turned the ball over three times and just looked completely listless on offense, similar to how they did against the Jaguars a week prior, though Houston was able to actually put the ball in the endzone whereas Jacksonville couldn't.

What do you think about the 10.5 line?
