Underdog Pick #1: Jacksonville Jaguars (+340 at Wager Web Sportsbook) @ Houston Texans, Sunday, 1:00 ET: There’s something about the way that the Jags are playing right now that we like. They are definitely getting the job done with some hardnosed play in the secondary, and that really could frustrate a Houston passing game which won’t have WR Andre Johnson yet again. There is much that has been made over the Texans’ romp over the Titans last week, but if we have learned nothing else about this franchise, it is that we can only expect the unexpected. It would certainly seem odd to have QB Blaine Gabbert come on the road in his first divisional game and win, but we have to remember that Jacksonville, even with five losses already on the season, isn’t all that far out of the playoffs. Don’t be shocked if the shocker comes on Sunday.

Underdog Pick #2: Seattle Seahawks (+110 at Wager Web Sportsbook) vs. Cincinnati Bengals, Sunday 1:00 ET: It’s not all that much of an upset, but it is still an upset at that. The Seahawks are just a totally different team playing here at home than they are on the road. The weather is going to be awful. Neither team is going to have their starting running back. The ineptness of QB Charlie Whitehurst will be neutralized by the ineptness of a rookie quarterback in Andy Dalton getting his first real taste of a big time road game in this league. It just doesn’t look good for the Bengals, and it looks like the game that somehow, the Seahawks are going to find some way to pull out a victory.
