Unlike last week’s fluctuating betting line caused by the Peyton Manning injury saga, the betting lines for the week two match-up between the Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins have been steady across the board for the entire week, according to Oddshark.com.

The over/under sits at 48 points for all seven sites listed. I’m not a betting man, but I think it is pretty likely that both teams can combine to go over that 48-point total, especially given how productive each offense was last week.

The spread opened in Houston's favor at -3 and has not changed too much since then. Currently, the spread is being split at -3 ½ and -4 for the seven sites. I’m sure that if Arian Foster is given the green light to play after Friday's practice that it may bump up to a -5, but it’s stable and showing Houston as the slight favorite.  

In either case, the odds are favoring Houston for the second straight week.
