Chargers vs. Texans Spread

The Chargers vs. Texans spread opened as an early PICK and has since moved to Houston +3.  Yes the 3-5 Chargers are road favorites in this game vs. the 4-3 Texans.  Nearly 65 percent of those betting the spread were indeed favoring San Diego here.  The Texans money line would pay out $13 for every $10 bet and some 75 percent of those betting the money line were on Houston in this game.  The Chargers vs. Texans UNDER/OVER was set at 50.5.  That is the highest total of any NFL game this coming weekend. 

So why on Earth would the Texans be a home underdog in this game when one considers they are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games following both a Straight Up loss and an Against The Spread loss?  The Texans are also 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games as a home underdog while the Chargers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games.

One of the most important trends to consider before betting on the Chargers-Texans game might be this: Between 2006-09, San Diego had the third-best winning percentage in the NFL during November, going 12-5, and it's been even better in December with an 18-0 mark.

The Chargers have won all three meetings against the Texans and Philip Rivers comes into this game leading the NFL with 2,649 passing yards.

Houston suffered a loss last week in Indianapolis where they went a dismal 0 for 6 on third down in the first half and trailed 17-3 by the break.  Quarterback Matt Schaub found himself sacked three times.

The Buffalo Bills held off the Indianapolis Colts, 27-24, as Josh Allen threw for 324 yards (with 128 of those yards going to Stefon Diggs). The Colts, despite coming in with the seventh seed, showed why they are a difficult team to stop. They rank in the top ten in the NFL on offense, defense and special teams, and the running of Jonathan Taylor kept Colt drives going, and it also took into the second half for the Bills to solve that Colt defense.
