As Weston noted earlier this week, your Houston Texans are HEAVY underdogs to the Bills on Sunday. As I’m writing this post, the line has moved from BUF -17 to BUF -16, so it would seem some bettors believe 17 points in a NFL game is simply too many to confidently spot, even if the ‘dog features a rookie quarterback making his first start on the road.
Whether you’d be comfortable laying the points or not, Sunday’s tilt in Buffalo does not seem to bode well for the good guys. After a disappointing opening loss to the Steelers, the Bills have been firing on all cylinders the last two weeks, and we haven’t really seen enough from the Texans since Tyrod Taylor went down to rationally argue that they’re on the same tier as the Bills are. Sunday could be a bloodbath. And who would want to miss seeing that?
