Football Betting – Cincinnati Bengals at Houston Texans

December 1, 2010 NFL Football

Football betting on the Cincinnati Bengals has not been very successful this season.

The Bengals were thought before the season to be a team that could make the playoffs but the injury to quarterback Carson Palmer ended any of those aspirations.  Gamblers now look to oppose the Bengals with football bets more often than not each week.

Football betting odds have the Texans favored on the NFL odds Week 10 board.  Houston has not been favored that often in recent seasons but they have done okay in that role going 7-5 the past few seasons according to football betting numbers.  The Bengals are just about .500 as road underdogs in recent seasons according to football betting numbers.

Cincinnati and Houston have played just four times since the Texans began play.  The Bengals have won three of those four games according to football betting information.  They are just 2-2 against the football betting number though. Last year at Houston, the Texans blew out the Bengals by a score of 35-6 according to football betting information.  That was an easy pointspread cover for the Texans and the game stayed under the football betting total.

Gamblers making football bets on the total will probably lean to the over in this game.  The Texans have gone over the total more than 60% of the time at home since 2005 according to football betting statistics. What is worrisome to gamblers making football bets on the total is the lack of offense from the Bengals. Without Carson Palmer the Bengals have looked hopeless on offense most of the time.  Conversely, if you like the under in this game in football betting you have to worry about a pathetic Cincinnati defense that has rarely stopped anyone this season.

Gamblers are probably going to make football bets on the Texans in this matchup and ignore the total.  The Texans have shown the ability to score points with quarterback Matt Schaub and their defense can make plays that can impact the football betting outcome.
