New York Jets at Houston Texans: 2015 Week 11 NFL Pick

New York Jets (5-4) at Houston Texans (4-5) I’m torn on this one. On one hand, I think this line is probably too high at 3.5 in favor of the visiting Jets in Houston. The Texans are no pushover and have won 3 of their last 4 games, including last week in Cincinnati against the previously undefeated Bengals. They rank 15th in rate of moving the chains differential. They’re likely...
