Week 12 NFL Lines And Odds: Texans Vs Jaguars

Houston lost its starting quarterback Matt Schaub but get All-Pro wide receiver Andre Johnson back in the lineup. The Texans are a four point favorite on the road against Jacksonville.

The Houston Texans will be without quarterback Matt Schaub on Sunday but are expecting the return of wide receiver Andre Johnson to the lineup. Quarterback Matt Leinart will be making his first start for the Texans who are a four point favorite on the road over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

The Texans enter Sunday's game with a 7-3 record overall and are also 7-3 against the spread this season. Jacksonville on the other hand is 3-7 this season and 4-6 against the number.

Recent history between the two teams suggests a high scoring affair but the Jaguars' struggles this season along with Schaub's injury may suggest otherwise. Houston is 13-6 against the spread in its last 19 games against Jacksonville and is just 4-9 overall against the number in the last 13 games.
