NFL odds Week 9: Bills vs. Texans

Thomas B. Shea

The Texans lay another double-digit spread as the Bills come to Houston

Looking at the odds this week and records of the teams overall, Mario Williams made the wrong choice in leaving Houston to play for the Buffalo Bills. Favored in every game this season, the Texans are laying 11.5 points to the visiting Bills.

Coming off a bye week, the Texans are favored by double-digits for the third time in 2012, having covered 13+ point spreads against the Titans and Dolphins. Their lone losses against the spread came in Week 5 against the Jets and Week 6 against the Packers - their lone actual loss of the season.

The Bills also come off a bye, but have not performed quite as well against the spread, going 3-4 so far this season. Their most lopsided spread was also their most lopsided defeat, a 45-3 drubbing by the 49ers that easily handled the 10-point spread.

The total of 47 for this game may be low, as games involving Buffalo have gone over this number five of the seven times they have played. The Texans are also second in the league in points per game, averaging just under 31 points per contest.
