Default Early Line: Houston -6.5 over Baltimore

The Texans are 6.5 point favorites against the Ravens at Reliant on Sunday.

Will the Texans not only win, but cover the spread? Personally, I believe they will.

What do you think?

It opened at -4, which was a gift, and then was bet up to -7.5 on 5dimes. I'd take the points if I were wagering this game, but Houston SU moneyline.

meh.....the Texans are more than capable of covering this spread. It's just whether or not their frigging heads are in the game Sunday. If I was actually gambling, which I don't do, I would take the points and the Texans. I think the Texans will be looking for some payback this Sunday.

points too risky either way, but lack of pass rush from both teams and injuries to both secondaries scream for the over (48)

7 td's in this game will be a gimme. Play it safe and take the over

You pick a team to win the game straight up, but the money you win if you pick the favorite is less than the amount you place on the bet and vice versa, if you pick the dog, you win more money than the amount you place on the bet.

I expect the Ravens to win straight up as well. The Texans should have an advantage, because the Ravens' defense is more injured than ours.

However, Flacco looks strong, Rice is playing better than Foster and Smith is playing better than Andre. I think that the Ravens have the edge on talent, although we have home field advantage and are coming of of a humiliating loss on national TV. I hope that our players have enough pride to go out and put this game away early. But Harbaugh is a tough opponent.

76 got me, thanks. Straight up, moneyline. 7 point teaser on the moneyline and over would be a smart play too.

I dunno going as far as covering the spread, but I DO think they'll win straight up!

Ravens are hurting with injuries, which I respect and yet don't feel sorry for but they're a good team and "Uni-brow" (aka Flacco) hs played fairly well this season.

My predictions and/or observations have nothing to do with our ass-whoopin' Sunday night. I kinda saw that loss coming. That said, I was a little disappointed in the effort, mistakes, stupid decision making and play calling... Other than that, I called that loss.

A win is a win!! I don't bet in Vegas so I don't care if we win in a baseball score like 3-2: A Field Goal > Safety!

I also having us winning this Sunday!

I think this is a FG game either way. Ravens plus the points, or Houston moneyline, IMO.

Also, I think a 6 pt. teaser here is a steal. Bal +12.5/Over 42.5

76 has it right here, but just to kind of simplify it for you let me break it down.

Right now one site I check has the Texans -360 and the Ravens +260 for the upcoming game. Basically what that means is a better would have to place a $360 bet in order to win $100 if he wanted to bet straight up for the Texans to win. On the flip side you could place a $100 wager on the Ravens and win $260 if you wanted to take them straight up.

I know people who bet on games and only take safe underdogs and the S/U or moneyline. The Houston Cougars made me a very happy man a few years ago when they beat Oklahoma State as 17 point underdogs.

This proves the Texans are liberal democrats. Just kidding. I don't bet so I don't know what the hell over, under, next to, spooning or any other degenerate gambling term means but Not because I think it's wrong to gamble. It's just too rich for my blood. I'll stick with scratch offs.

First, the spread will be closer by game time. However, I believe they'll cover 6.5 if they are the team I think they are & I believe they are.

Secondly, I believe polls should be public by default.

Considering it started at 4 I don't think it will change too much. The public has already dictated where Vegas thinks it should be in order for them to make money. I think at worse it may slide down to 5.5, but I see it staying around here because of the Ravens injuries.

I don't know about that. The bolded part. They may be getting better stats, but this early into the season, I don't know if you can say that to be true. Different situations, different circumstances. Over the course of the season... or at least once we can cross the half way mark, we can say who's playiing better than who, but right now I don't believe the stats are reflective of the quality of individual play.

Ravens more talented? They're starting three guys we did not want.
