Default Texans -7.5

Be curious to see how it moves in the next few days.

If the game is that easy, I'll be celebrating sunday night..

We were 10 point favorites vs the Colts. Wasn't easy.

They are 2-5 on the road, but apparently one of the 2 was recently against the Rams, who I hear have been good lately (although I thought they pretty much sucked).

-7.5..........That's with -3 given just for home field.

Florio's new Power Rankings sinks the Texans behind the Broncos, Niners and Falcons, but one ahead of the Pats. His remark beside the #4 Houston Texans: "The road to New Orleans most likely will go through Houston. The question is whether the team from Houston will be the one making the trip." With the Texans' recent performances, this is the same thing that many other analysts are saying......and Texans fans are worried about.

I think the power rankings are shaking out pretty close to what I think they should be. Team records & who beat who aren't as important as who is playing the best football.

The 49ers being ranked over the Patriots is odd to me (but not everyone has it that way). There are injury concerns, but if I had to put money on it, I don't think 49ers can do that again. Just like I don't think New England will blow us out again. Win maybe, most likely. But not like last Monday.

The spread has been all over the place from the start with several offshore lines giving up to 9.5

What does it all means, I dunno.

The revival of the Vikings and AP, along with the schizophrenic unpredictability of a Texans "whole" game O and D performance over the past 5 games.........

Texans should beat the Vikings by 10 or more.

-7.5 is a steal. I'd be all over it if I were in Vegas.

The thing I really like to watch for is the move that comes friday/saturday. Currently 57% of the money is on the vikings if that flops to 55-60% Texans that is a strong positive move for them

So with all the money on the Vikings now, that says the general thought amongst the betting public believe that 7.5 is too big, right?

Either they have no faith in our ability to score or they think AD will play outside his average & find the end zone often?

7.5 is where it sits now so if its not moving the betting public thinks 7.5 is fine. It started at 9.5 and moved down to 7.5 from 9.5 down to where it is now is probably where most of the money hit the other side. If that was still too much it would fall even further.

The 9.5 is from offshore online betting house.
I think you have to pay a little premium to get that.
It's a sort of a teaser bet, but don't quote me on that.

To be honest with you, I don't know how much I can believe on the reporting amount of bets. It's like the stock market, you just don't know how those speculators can drive or put down a certain stock at a given moment in time.

Like right now I just check, all the Vegas lines hold steady at 7.5 for the last couple of days, but MGM just raised it to 8.5
