Texans vs. Jets odds: Point spread, moneyline, total for NFL Week 14
Here’s the latest NFL betting odds for the Texans vs. Jets:
The Jets recently announced they will return to Zach Wilson as the starting QB. He was recently benched in favor of third-string quarterback Tim Boyle, who has started the last two games.
In those matchups, he’s failed to top 200 passing yards, threw three interceptions, and hasn’t had a QBR over 23. He has also failed to help the Jets put 14 points on the board.
The Texans’ defense has allowed teams to move the ball, but they have done a decent job at not letting the high yardage totals equate to many points. Last weekend, they kept one of the hottest teams in football under 20 points for the first time in five weeks of play.
On the other side of the ball, the Texans’ offense moves the chains with the best of them but has struggles in the red zone areas that keep games competitive that shouldn’t be.
Against the Jets’ dynamic defense, which could be a problem. Wilson has had decent games when least expected, and if the Texans allow them to hang around, this Sunday’s matchup could be another of those surprising outings.

Texans vs. Jets predictions
The Texans have a top-10 scoring offense in the league, and the Jets are a bottom-three scoring team. Additionally, the Jets are enduring a game of musical chairs at the QB position, which never bodes well for winning games.
New York has a solid defense that is doing its all to give them a chance to win every week, but whether it be Wilson or Boyle, it’s not wise to trust them to lead the team to victory.
The Jets haven’t cracked 14 points in six weeks. It’s hard to imagine them going from that level of offensive struggles to the level of production needed to top one of the most electric offenses in football.
Prediction: Texans and OVER
