I think Vegas is fairly close to the best available odds. Texans' fans are too emotionally biased to call this one accurately. On the pick'em thread many fans are just predicting a loss so that it won't hurt as bad if that happens, knowing that they'll be happy if the Texans win anyway.

I do think that the Texans' players had better feel like they're going to win, or they don't have much of a chance. That's an advantage the Patriots will have over us if we meet them in the Championship game. Bill "the cheater" will have them thinking they will win, while Kubs will be more nervous, subliminally telling our players they will lose. A big play early, like the Watt pick-6, would really help.
I can't wait to see another one of those! I think Sunday night would be a great time to see it.
