Much anticipation surrounds the Oakland Raiders and Houston Texans game this Sunday, with both teams having a lot to prove to the rest of the league. This has been a popular choice with people as a game to bet on this weekend, though the loss of Andre Johnson to the Texans has caused some questions to arise about this matchup than anything else.
Both teams have looked solid this far into the season, but both have had great opportunities to get a W slip through their fingers already. These teams both have legitimate chances to make the playoffs in their respective divisions, but it's the all-important out of conference games that show the true colors of your football team.
Oddshark.com had the line for this game opened up the week with the Raiders a seven point underdog to the Texans, but the people have been putting their money on the Silver and Black more often than not with those odds, causing the odds-makers to push the closer to six as game time approaches. Bodog has a 6 point line with a 49 over/under, TopBet has a 6 point line as well as a 48.5 over/under. 5Dimes and Bet Online both have a 5.5 point line with a 48.5 over/under, as do Intertops and SBG Global.
