The Texans are favored in NFL betting since the game means more to them than it does to the New England. The Patriots have already clinched the AFC East and a playoff spot while Houston can get into the playoffs with a win and some help.
Bet on football has Houston as a 7-point favorite with a total of 45.5. The Texans and Patriots have played twice in history and New England has won both times. The two teams met three years ago in New England and the Patriots won 40-7. New England also won at Houston 23-20 in 2003. The scenario in this bet on football matchup should favor the Texans since New England might choose to rest players. The Texans can make the playoffs if they win and the Jets and Ravens lose. They can also get in if Denver loses and either the Jets or Ravens lose.
The Texans may be able to get the bet on football win against New England. It is unlikely that New England will want to risk players like Tom Brady, Randy Moss and Wes Welker for the entire game when it really doesn’t mean anything. The Patriots are coming off a 35-7 bet on football win last week against Jacksonville that clinched the AFC East. Randy Moss caught three of Tom Brady’s four TD passes in the NFL betting win. The Patriots won the AFC East for the seventh time in nine years and they return to the playoffs after missing out last year. New England is playing very well of late, having won their last three games by a combined score of 72-27. Wes Welker had 13 catches for 138 yards in the bet on football win. He leads the NFL with 122 catches this season. "I knew my numbers would probably go up just having Tom and the type of offense we're in," he said, "but I never knew it would be like this."
The Texans can finish with nine wins this bet on football season if they get the win on Sunday against New England. The Texans won 27-20 last week at Miami in NFL betting. The Texans led 27-0 before surviving a late Miami rally. Now the Texans can make the playoffs if they win and get some help. Quarterback Matt Schaub threw for 286 yards and two TDs in the NFL betting win.
