Houston Texans vs. New York Jets

The majority of online sportsbooks had the Houston Texans vs. New York Jets spread at -6.5 heading into Sunday.  A few were still holding the line at -7, where it opened earlier in the week.  The Mirage Las Vegas had the line at -7 while the Punta Cana Hard Rock had the spread set at -6.5.  65 percent of those betting the spread were on Houston.  75 percent of the money line bets were on the Texans to win outright and pay out $25 for every $10 bet.  The total of 46 was getting dead even action.

New York managed to squeak past Cleveland last week, but it wasn’t exactly pretty.  They had to do so in overtime. 

The Jets are the first team to win consecutive overtime road games, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, having won in Detroit and now in Cleveland. It's the first time the Jets won an overtime game on a touchdown reception since Oct. 18, 1987 (a win over the Dolphins), and the fourth time in their history. The Jets rushed for over 100 yards for the ninth straight game to open the season. The only other time they've done that was 1978.

The Jets are 7-2, tied for the second-best nine-game start in team history. It's their best start since starting 8-1 in 1986.

As for Houston, high hopes for the Texans has diminished as they enter this game with a 4-5 record after losing to Jacksonville last week.
