Online NFL Betting Odds:
The Texans step into this Saturday’s matchup flashing a 9-4 record that ranks them 1st in the AFC South. Ultimately Houston has failed to lock up the division thanks to the 7-6 Indianapolis Colts. The Colts are delivering a late-season resurgence in hopes of pulling this division out from under them. On top of that, they managed to snap Houston’s 9-game winning streak. Now it’s up to the Texans to prove just how talented they are in these crucial remaining matchups. Fortunately for the Texans they’ve drawn a pretty weak opponent in this weekend’s contest. So just how big of an edge does Houston have over New York? Surprisingly it’s not that massive at least offensively. Currently scoring 24.8 per game, Houston has a slight edge over the 20.8 that New York is averaging. The biggest difference is to be found on defense as Houston is only giving up 19.9 while the Jets allot 25.4.
Players to Watch: Deshaun Watson (3,298 passing yards, 22 TD, 9 INT), Lamar Miller (909 rushing yards, 4 TD, 0 F), and DeAndre Hopkins (1,151 receiving yards, 9 TD, 84 REC).
New York Jets
The Jets fly into this Week 15 contest flashing a 4-9 record that ranks them 3rd in the AFC East. With that record this late in the season, it’s no mystery that New York will be watching the postseason from their couch this season. Nevertheless New York can still take to the gridiron to give their fans something to smile about. In fact, New York managed to do just that in this past weekend’s 27-23 win over the Buffalo Bills. So will the Jets be able to upset the Texans at home this Saturday? Well it’s probably safer to bet against New York in the end.
Players to Watch: Sam Darnold (2,104 passing yards, 12 TD, 15 INT), Isaiah Crowell (685 rushing yards, 6 TD, 0 F), and Robby Anderson (492 receiving yards, 4 TD, 31 REC).
