Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Houston Texans-Jacksonville Jaguars Week 10 game, with the line from OddsShark.
(-1.5) Houston Texans (5-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars (2-6), Sunday, 1 p.m.
Mike: Jaguars. Jacksonville’s running game broke out in a big way Sunday to the tune of 205 rushing yards. The Jags should stick to that plan against a Houston defense allowing 4.4 yards per carry, which is tied for 21st worst in the NFL.
Andre: Jaguars. The combined turnover differential in this game is minus-19. These two have also combined to force just one turnover in their last four games. Assuming there aren’t many turnovers in this one, the Jags actually have a better yards-per-play differential, so I’ll take them.
Ricky: Texans. Houston is 7-0 straight up and 6-0-1 against the spread in its last seven games versus AFC South opponents, suggesting that despite the Texans’ flaws, they still can beat bad teams.
