Monday Night Football - Texans to run all over Jets

With no English football on this Monday that means we can concentrate on the Houston Texans' game in New York against the hapless Jets, the Jets are struggling badly & things don't get too much tougher than running up against the Super Bowl favourites.

Houston Texans @ New York Jets

(Bad times for the Jets' Mark Sanchez who has the spectre of being replaced by Tim Tebow looming)

New York have their best defensive & offensive players out injured with dominant cornerback Darrelle Revis out meaning it's much easier to pass against them & their star receiver Santonio Holmes out meaning it becomes even harder than usual for them to pass themselves. We've always felt that Mark Sanchez is lucky to be a NFL starter & the Jets' quarterback is really struggling at the moment & coming up against the top ranked defense in yards & pointss given up isn't going to make things any easier & the inevitable calls for Tim Tebow to replace him continue to grow louder. Even their young up & coming receiver Stephen Hill is a doubt for this game & it's hard to see how they can hurt Houston.

The Jets' traditional strength over the last few years has been their defense but even that isn't doing the job this year & their big problem here is that they don't appear to be able to stop the run in particular ranking 31st in yards given up - that spells huge trouble against the Texans. Houston have maybe the most talented running back in the league in Arian Foster & he's backed up by Ben Tate who would be a feature running back for most other teams, the two of them should have a lot of fun in this one & could end up with multiple touchdowns between them. At quarterback for the Texans Matt Schaub has been efficiency personified with 7 touchdowns to just one interception & a highly respectable pass completion rate of 67%, with Schaub getting fitter & fitter with every game after a big injury they are potentially a scary offensive unit.

(Andre Johnson could be celebrating some big numbers at the end of this one)

The Jets got blown away by the visiting 49ers last week losing 34-0 & the Texans are better than San Francisco offensively so they should easily cover the -8 point handicap. We can see this being a big win for Houston & in addition to backing them to cover the 8 points we advise backing a Texans' winning margin of 19-24 points at 15/2 & 25-30 points at 12/1 at Betfred.

Houston Texans to beat New York Jets with -8 point handicap at 10/11 (General)
Houston Texans to win by 19-24 points at 15/2 & 25-30 points at 12/1 (Betfred)
