Houston has really come on of late, especially offensively as they rank in the Top 5 in the league in total yards as online football betting stats show.  Since returning from injury, quarterback Matt Schaub has played very well and Houston definitely has weapons as most gamblers that bet on football know.  Receiver Andre Johnson made the Pro Bowl and many gamblers that bet on football believe he is the best wide out in the league.  Online football betting stats tell us that rookie running back Steve Slaton has had an excellent season and leads the team in touchdowns.

Online football betting information tells us that Mario Williams made the Pro Bowl on the defensive side of the ball but overall, the defensive numbers for Houston are not that strong.

Gamblers that bet on football totals should know that Houston goes over the total almost 60% of the time at home as online football betting statistics have it. On the other side of that online football betting stat is a Bears team that goes under the total on the road almost 60% of the time.
