Miami Dolphins at Houston Texans - NFL Betting

NFL betting for Week 6 includes a matchup between the Miami Dolphins and Houston Texans.

Both teams are desperately in need of a win and that should make this game very competitive on the NFL Week 6 odds board. Here is a look at this football betting matchup.

NFL betting history shows that Miami and Houston have only met three times in history with Houston winning all three times. Since Houston became the Texans that are 3-0 straight up and 2-1 against the football betting spread in games against the Dolphins. Last year the Texans won 22-19 at home but did not cover the five point NFL betting pointspread. Houston won 17-15 in 2006 and 21-20 in 2003. Every single meeting was close in NFL betting and Sunday’s game should be the same. Two of the three games went under the NFL betting pointspread. Of all the games on the Week 6 board this one has the potential to go down to the wire.

Miami has been just a so-so road underdog lately in NFL betting. They are about 45% against the football betting pointspread in that role the past three seasons. The Texans have actually been pretty good laying points in NFL betting. It hasn’t happened that often but they are 6-3 in that role the past three seasons according to NFL betting stats. They should be in that situation on Sunday as they host Miami.

Miami has shown the ability to be competitive this season with Chad Pennington at quarterback. No longer are the Dolphins considered pushovers and while they are underdogs in this football betting matchup against Houston, many NFL betting experts will take a look at them. Houston has been in nearly every game this season but hasn’t had a lot of success versus the NFL betting pointspread. They have an offense that can put points on the board but is oftentimes erratic. Quarterback Matt Schaub can be either excellent or he can struggle according to NFL betting experts. He should find some success against at Miami defense that has given up points.
