Week 5 NFL Lines And Odds: Raiders at Texans

A recap of the lines and odds for the week five match-up between Houston and Oakland.

Another week, another odds-on favorite nod for your Houston Texans as they prepare to welcome the Oakland Raiders into Reliant Stadium for their seemingly annual match-up.

The Texans were seven point favorites to open the line but are now sitting between four and five point favorites, depending on the betting site, over Oakland. Even with the news that Andre Johnson will miss this weekend’s week five match-up, the Texans still are favorites by a decent margin. It probably doesn't help Oakland's cause to come in after being bottled up by New England. The moneyline also reflects Houston as a slight favorite.

The over/under sits between 48 and 49 points across the board. I would probably bet on the under in this match-up as I can’t imagine both teams getting into a scorefest. Plus, I’ve already predicted a 23-17 game during the Battle Red Blog podcast earlier this week.
