Default Texans Open as a 7 Point Dawg

Since they have outscored the AFC South 126 - 40 or so this may be a bit too low.

Yeah, but there was a 59-0 in there when the Tacks were at their worst. The Pats have only won one real road game which was against the Bills. The Bucs game was in England so I wouldn't even count that. But then again the Texans have only won three home games.

There may be some books putting out lines, but we will not see the flood of odds on week 17 until week 16 is in the books.

Sure, both of the early lines Iíve seen had the Texans as 7 point favorites.

There are early feeder lines out, but we will not see the flood until tomorrow as there are still many games off the board right now.

I would be very surprised if that line did not move to Texans -3 by game time.

Wow I would be all over the road dog on this one. The Texans have stunk at home, they usually have a let down in the biggest games, and well...it's the Texans. Granted, they may not play all of thier starters, but this has Texans patented FAIL on it bigtime.

It all depends on two things:

1) If the Texans show up for BOTH halves.
2) If NE pulls a Colts and yanks all their starters in the 3rd quarter.
