Default Texans 9 1/2 Point Dogs Against Pats

..and the over/under is 48.

It realistically let's you know what they think of the Texans win over the Bengals. This is a time to be thankful for today's win......but no reason to be giddy or feel much more confident about their potential play against a good team. The Pats won't forget about their receivers.

Exactly. I'm happy and thankful for the win today, but next week against the Patriots will be tough.

The spread is set to attract bettors to the Texans side of the wager.

Everyone is jumping on NE.

This game reminds me a lot of the Ravens game last year. We were also 9 point dogs and no one gave us a chance. We were in the game late and surprised a lot of people. I think today's win will boost the confidence of the team.

I't can be done, the Jets beat the pats in 2010 in the playoffs after getting blown out in the regular season.

Agree. I would take NE -9.5 and I don't think I'll change my mind.

I know one group that will be rooting like crazy for us to win on Sunday and that's Vegas. I talked to a friend of mine who's in this business locally and he said 90% of the wagers he's taken have been on the Patriots. Haven't checked yet to see how the money is coming in at Vegas, but I doubt it is much different. They stand to possibly make a killing with us keeping this a close game or even winning.

Wow, I almost posted in the NE fan's thread that we will be ten point underdogs but thought I'd get clobbered. Sounds right to me.

Patriots either KILL us by 3+ scores, or we win by less than a touchdown. I'd bet the shi* out of this if I were a gambling man...

About what I expected...... To be honest I anticipate the line moving closer to 11 as the week goes on. There are going to be a ton of people jumping on New England early.

Bingo. Good post. Happy they won but there is quite a ways to go before they can play on the level with the Pats or it at least appears to be so

In regards to Brandon Harris: There's no substitute for REAL games.

Camp, and even preseason games, are no way to get a player ready for the real bullets of a reg season game.

That's why I think Brandon Harris is just having growing pains. Kareem Jackson had an entire 1st season of growing pains in 2010. 2011 he looked better. And now he looks really good out there.

Harris has athletic ability, he plays with passion, and I think he just needs the reps (no matter how many times he screws up) so that he can be out there and learning in a reg season game.

Completely agree. Harris will get better and better every game he plays.

I'll keep saying "Harris is a bum" every time he makes plays on Twitter. Love trolling some of those idiots on there.

It looks like it has stayed around -9.5 across the board after a -10 open. 69% of the money is on the pats and giving the points but the money line is now 51/49 pats which over the last few days has move considerably from about 80/20 pats. Thats not as positive as the line moving but still people leaning for a texans win. also 79% of the money is on the over

The line hasn't moved but money has the money line bet has flipped 51/49 texans and side bets have moved to 65/35 pats. If this keeps up the line should start coming down
