Houston steps into this weekend’s matchup sporting a 5-3 record that pegs them as the best team in the AFC South. Right now Houston’s biggest threat is the 3-4 Tennessee Titans, so it’s looking like the Texans could be securing their place in the playoffs in the coming weeks. However, the 3-5 Jaguars are capable of bouncing back from their current slump at any point and are not to be taken lightly. Nevertheless, Houston is doing all they can to secure the AFC South since they enter this weekend’s contest riding a 5-game win streak. Despite that eye-catching stat, the NFL football betting odds are still pegging Houston as the underdog this Sunday. This is likely motivated by the fact that Houston is 2-2 on the road this season. But at the end of the day, Houston comes into this matchup red hot ready to pick off the struggling Broncos. With that in mind, those odds make taking Houston an even more lucrative option this NFL betting Sunday.
Players to Watch: Deshaun Watson (2,176 passing yards, 15 TD, 7 INT), Lamar Miller (504 rushing yards, 2 TD, 0 F), and DeAndre Hopkins (789 receiving yards, 6 TD, 53 REC).
The Broncos stampede into this Week 9 pairing sporting a meager 3-5 record that pegs them as the 2nd worst team in the AFC West. Currently ranked 3rd overall in the division, it’s clear that Denver has no hope of catching the 7-1 Kansas City Chiefs. On top of that, it’s looking like they’re pretty far behind in the Wild Card race. So, without much to play for, can we really expect a great outing out of Denver? It doesn’t seem likely. Their defense has given up 75 points in the last two weeks and their offense has been pitiful all season long. On top of that, Houston has just acquired a player who is dead set on bringing another loss to Denver.
Players to Watch: Case Keenum (2,110 passing yards, 10 TD, 10 INT), Philip Lindsay (531 rushing yards, 3 TD, 0 F), and Emmanuel Sanders (660 receiving yards, 3 TD, 50 REC).
