Week 8 NFL Lines And Odds: Jaguars Vs. Texans

The Jacksonville Jaguars scored a big upset last Monday. How does that affect their odds?

The Jacksonville Jaguars were able to shock the world on Monday night with their huge win over the Baltimore Ravens. This week, a dinged-up Jags team will take on the Houston Texans. Did last week's win have the oddsmakers rethinking things? Let's take a look.

Our friends over at OddsShark have the Jags pegged as big underdogs against Houston. Spectacular upset or no, that was to be expected. (There is a reason they are called "upsets," after all.) After opening at 9.5, the spread for Houston currently stands at between 9 and 10.5 points. They are expected to win by a touchdown and then some.

The over/under for the game currently stands at between 40.5 and 41 points. I'd say that there's a fair chance at the teams combining for more than that, but as we all know, there are weeks where the Jacksonville offense doesn't carry their end of the bargain.
