NFL Picks for Thursday December 5, 2013
NFL Network Thursday Night Football Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars 7:30pm EST
The Texans hope to wake up from a nightmarish 10 straight losses when they visit the upstart Jaguars on Thursday night. Houston is 3-7 ATS during its skid, but it has lost each of the past six games by seven points or less, falling 34-31 at home to New England last week. Since starting the season 0-8, Jacksonville is 3-1 (SU and ATS), with all three victories coming on the road, including last week’s 32-28 win in Cleveland. But at home, the Jags are 0-4 (SU and ATS) and losing by an average score of 29 to 6. Before the Texans lost 13-6 to the Jags two weeks ago, they had won five straight in this series (4-1 ATS).
