It has been a forgettable year for both the Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars, as the two AFC South rivals are a combined 2-12. This game could have more relevance in the battle for a 2021 NFL Draft first-round pick than the 2020 season.

No matter the prize though, the experts are weighing in with their predictions. Here are their thoughts on this Week 9 game between the Texans and Jaguars.

Texans vs Jaguars Picks Week 9

CBS Sports picks are from their panel of experts, numberFire picks are from their NFL game projections, Sporting News picks are from Vinnie Iyer, and betting favorites are from FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 9 NFL odds.

CBS Sports: Texans (3)
numberFire: Texans
Sporting News: Texans
Betting Favorite: Texans -7

Against the Spread:
CBS Sports: Texans (3)
Sporting News: Texans

With the sixth-round draft pick Jake Luton set to start at quarterback for the Jags, none of the experts are taking Jacksonville in this one (who have now lost six straight since Week 1). The Texans are also favorites to cover the 7-point spread.
