Houston Vs Jacksonville Spread Betting Tips

The Jacksonville Jaguars are on fire and streaking toward what looks like a sure-fire playoff appearance. The Houston Texans are not only almost lifeless entering their Week 15 AFC South divisional matchup, but as banged-up as any team in the league at this point.

Houston (4-9) at Jacksonville (9-4)
When: Sunday, December 17, 2017 at 1:00 PM ET

NFL Odds: Jacksonville -11
Total: 39

The Houston Texans have lost three straight and six of their last seven games including their 26-16 Week 14 loss to San Francisco last weekend while failing to cover the spread as a slight one-point home favorite in the process. The Texans have lost several starters for the season including star rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson and superstar defensive end J.J. Watt.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have won two straight and six of seven and picked up a seriously impressive 30-24 win over Seattle on Sunday to cover the spread as a 3-point home favorite despite my pick otherwise. The Jags are ranked a shocking sixth in scoring (25.3 ppg) and spectacular first in points allowed (15.5 ppg) and are now getting some eye-opening play from quarterback Blake Bortles and powerful rookie running back Leonard Fournette (923 yards, 9 TDs).

The Jags have everything to play for as they sit in first place in the AFC South, one game ahead of Marcus Mariota and the suddenly struggling Tennessee Titans while Houston has absolutely nothing left to play for except pride in what has turned into a nightmare campaign for them.

The Texans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a straight up loss, 1-5 ATS in their last six games against their AFC South division rivals and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 road games against a team with a winning home record.

Jacksonville is a perfect 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games in December, a near-perfect 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against their AFC South division rivals and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall.

The Jaguars already beat the Texans 29-7 back in Houston in Week 1 Sept. 10th. While that Texans team did have Watt, the starting QB was Tom Savage.

Pick: Jacksonville -11

Packers Vs Panthers Odds & Expert Pick

Packers Vs Panthers Odds & Expert Pick

Green Bay Packer fans are on the Aaron Rodgers train, but the Las Vegas oddsmakers are a bit more skittish. The Week 15 NFL betting odds favor the Carolina Panthers by 2.5-points over Rodgers the Packers.

Should You Bet The Green Bay Packers In Aaron Rodgers First Game in 8 Weeks?

Green Bay is on the verge of falling out of playoff contention. But lady luck is on their side as the Packers will regain the services of quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers is cleared to return from a seven-game absence caused by a broken right collarbone. Green Bay went 3-5 with backup Brett Hundley starting.

"In his mind, he’s ready to go," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said of Rodgers. "It’s a process."

Rodgers threw for 369 yards and four touchdowns two years ago at Carolina, though the Panthers won 37-29.

The question remains. Can the Packers, who have given up 43 sacks, protect Rodgers from one of the most terrifying front seven in the league?

Should You Bet On The 9-4 Carolina Panthers

The Panthers insist they are not caught off guard by the likely return of Rodgers.

“He has probably been throwing for four or five weeks,” Carolina coach Ron Rivera said.

Rivera said the Panthers cannot concentrate entirely on Rodgers, though the coach does seem to appreciate some of the attention that might be at least temporarily diverted from his team.

“Our focus will be on the Packers and what they do,” Rivera said.

Packers Vs Panthers Expert Pick

67 percent of public bettors are going with Carolina in this contest and I believe it’s easily the right call, seeing as how Green Bay’s defense is mostly pitiful and just won’t be able to stop Cam Newton, Stewart and both, Christian McCaffrey and Devin Funchess.

The Packers may be 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and a stellar 25-10 ATS in their last 35 games in the month of December, but Carolina has gone 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games in Week 15 and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall while the home team in this NFC rivalry has gone 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. Simply put, Carolina wins and covers a spread that should actually be a few points higher!

The Panthers have won five of their last six games.

Expert Pick: Carolina -2.5

Eagles Vs Giants Line & Betting Predictions

How will the Philadelphia Eagles fare without starting quarterback Carson Wentz, whom they lost to a season-ending torn ACL last week? Let’s find out.

The Las Vegas NFL oddsmakers aren’t blinking on the red-hot Eagles. Philadelphia is favored by 7.5-points over the G-Men. And after you bet the game you can watch the game on FOX and stream it via Fox Sports Go.

Should You Bet The Eagles Without Wentz?

The Eagles have won 10 of their last 11 games and got back in the win column last weekend by beating the Rams 43-35 in a flat-out thriller. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the high-flying Birds lost second-year superstar quarterback Carson Wentz to a season-ending torn ACL injury in the win. However, I guess there’s some decent news in the fact that backup Nick Foles is experienced and played well to help the Birds close out a very good Rams team that still had some hope before the Birds finished off the win with a clock-killing drive.

Should You Bet The 2-11 Giants?

Eli Manning and the Giants looked pretty good against Dallas – for three quarters. Unfortunately, the Giants fell apart in the final frame by giving up 20 unanswered points en route to a humbling 30-10 loss to the Cowboys. While Manning passed for 228 yards and one touchdown, he did toss two costly interceptions and New York’s uninspiring defense gave up three TD passes and no interceptions to Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.

Eagles Vs Giants Betting Predictions

The Eagles are a near-perfect 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games against their NFC East division rivals, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and a bankroll-boosting 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games overall while the Giants are just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games overall.
