    Wow.... I bet 10% of the experts all over the internet ESPN sporting news SI etc will pick the Texans to win... And definitely the guys with Bronco ties (Schlereth, Tom Jackson)

    This game is gonna be so hyped... I'm already getting excited

    What I said earlier in the day.
    Do not take that spread if you wants the Texans to win the game.
    Stay far far far away! :cow::cow::cow:

    Well....obviously the oddsmakers see something that makes them think the spread should be that high....I'm not sure it won't go up considering all the public money that will come in on the Colts...

    I was trying to think what the line would be before it came out....I figured it would be 8+...seems about right...Peyton Manning..undefeated at home..that's tough to beat.

    I've heard a saying that was something like "If you think Vegas made an error on the spread, you may need to rethink about it."

    Not trying to be a pessimist or anything, but I could definitely see Peyton Manning torching our secondary. (Pretty sure I'm not alone)

    The line isnt a prediction on what they think will happen. its a prediction on what they think the betting public thinks will happen.

    Why are we suprised with that spread?? Colts are 7-0, playing at home, have won 16 straight reg season games, have Peyton Manning on their team, have only lost to us once, and have a top Defense to go along with their offense.

    I predict Houston wins 28-21

    A 9 - 9/1-2 pt spread means youre' a dog of a dog!
    Nobody comes off a 31-10 win with a lot of positive media activity, considered to be a play-off contender; who has been playing the Colts tough with lesser personnel, get such a spread.

    I can see it if the Colts had just won a game convincingly, but they did not!

    But no, I'm not surprised at the spread.
    They can put it wherever, whatever they want.
    So, no... I'm not surprised at all.

    The Texans still have not proved themselves against the league's elite teams. Until they do, this is not an unfair spread. If Indianapolis was coming to Houston, they would be favored here as well, just by a bit less.

    Being down a top tier TE and his backup probablt doesn't bode well for the Texans odds either. :gun:

    The NFL Betting Odds to bet Houston Texans vs Indianapolis Colts are: +8(1/2) -110 in a moneyline of +275 for the Houston Texans, while Indianapolis Colts betting odds are: -8(1/2) -110 in a moneyline of-335 in BetUS betting lines.

    The Houston Texans take on the Indianapolis Colts in what almost assuredly should be a blow-out. The Texans start Sage Rosenfels again at quarterback. He just isn’t as good as Matt Schaub. Sports betting fans have to love how Rosenfels goes in there and then just gets absolutely pummeled by opposing defenses.

    Compare this line to the Saints v Falcons.....

    Saints are a ten point favorite at home over a Falcons team that probably gets a little more respect from the public than the Texans....The Colts and Saints are about the same in the public's eye. So...compared to that line I would say that 9 is just about right...if not a little low. Doesn't mean we can't go in there and kick their butt....just that I am not surprised at all by that line.

    I'm a gambling *****. I know the spread and O/U, but what do these other numbers mean? And a 9 pt. spread doesn't surprise me in the least.

    I sure do see the Falcons on national TV a lot more than the Texans this season.
