Wow.... I bet 10% of the experts all over the internet ESPN sporting news SI etc will pick the Texans to win... And definitely the guys with Bronco ties (Schlereth, Tom Jackson)

This game is gonna be so hyped... I'm already getting excited

What I said earlier in the day.
Do not take that spread if you wants the Texans to win the game.
Stay far far far away! :cow::cow::cow:

Well....obviously the oddsmakers see something that makes them think the spread should be that high....I'm not sure it won't go up considering all the public money that will come in on the Colts...

I was trying to think what the line would be before it came out....I figured it would be 8+...seems about right...Peyton Manning..undefeated at home..that's tough to beat.

I've heard a saying that was something like "If you think Vegas made an error on the spread, you may need to rethink about it."

Not trying to be a pessimist or anything, but I could definitely see Peyton Manning torching our secondary. (Pretty sure I'm not alone)

The line isnt a prediction on what they think will happen. its a prediction on what they think the betting public thinks will happen.

Why are we suprised with that spread?? Colts are 7-0, playing at home, have won 16 straight reg season games, have Peyton Manning on their team, have only lost to us once, and have a top Defense to go along with their offense.

I predict Houston wins 28-21

A 9 - 9/1-2 pt spread means youre' a dog of a dog!
Nobody comes off a 31-10 win with a lot of positive media activity, considered to be a play-off contender; who has been playing the Colts tough with lesser personnel, get such a spread.

I can see it if the Colts had just won a game convincingly, but they did not!

But no, I'm not surprised at the spread.
They can put it wherever, whatever they want.
So, no... I'm not surprised at all.

The Texans still have not proved themselves against the league's elite teams. Until they do, this is not an unfair spread. If Indianapolis was coming to Houston, they would be favored here as well, just by a bit less.

Being down a top tier TE and his backup probablt doesn't bode well for the Texans odds either. :gun:

The NFL Betting Odds to bet Houston Texans vs Indianapolis Colts are: +8(1/2) -110 in a moneyline of +275 for the Houston Texans, while Indianapolis Colts betting odds are: -8(1/2) -110 in a moneyline of-335 in BetUS betting lines.

The Houston Texans take on the Indianapolis Colts in what almost assuredly should be a blow-out. The Texans start Sage Rosenfels again at quarterback. He just isnít as good as Matt Schaub. Sports betting fans have to love how Rosenfels goes in there and then just gets absolutely pummeled by opposing defenses.

Compare this line to the Saints v Falcons.....

Saints are a ten point favorite at home over a Falcons team that probably gets a little more respect from the public than the Texans....The Colts and Saints are about the same in the public's eye. So...compared to that line I would say that 9 is just about right...if not a little low. Doesn't mean we can't go in there and kick their butt....just that I am not surprised at all by that line.

[QUOTE=imatexan;1291286]I sure do see the Falcons on national TV a lot more than the Texans this season.With the year Ryan had after all the Vick saga and with a rookie HC, they're gonna get that. If we keep playing like we have been, we'll get our due. If we can go 3-1 over our next 4 games, we'll be in the limelight like the Oilers of yesterday. Houston will have earned national respect. Except for maybe Cris Collingsworth. SOB is a Houston hater.

Why not this week, against a hot Texans team? The law of averages applies to our losses against the Colts, also. 7 straight losses. That can't go on forever.

Just a note if you examine who the colts have played to obtain this 7 game streak maybe just maybe you will not try betting them to cover the spread .:chef:

-110 means the payout is 10/11 odds, meaning that for every $11 you bet you win $10, or every $110 would net you $100.

The -335 on the Colts is the money line. That means the bet is on the Colts to win straight up and the payout is $335 bet to win $100.

+275 for the Texans means you bet $100 on the Texans to win straight up to win $275.

Not trying to look like a hero, but isn't it 4 straight losses rather than 7? Beat them the second time in '06. Lost twice in '07 and '08...

7 straight in Indy. 0-7.

Also, Indy would be smart to keep their barn door/roof closed as the Texans have yet to win a road game indoors. (0-12)

Last year!
We came in there with Sage and only got an 8 point spread.

This year, we have better personnel (making more improvements than the Colts); we're getting more recognition around the country etc. and yet the point spread is higher!

Nobody is surprised by that.

Nobody questioned the OVER/UNDER.

I questioned the point spread though! :good:

The Texans have worked their way all the way down to 8.5 "dawgs." Probably would be worth remembering that the Colts have scored 30 or more points in seven of their last eight games against the Texans. We're going to have to whittle that magic number down while we top it ourselves.
