NFL Betting: Houston Texans vs. Oakland Raiders

NFL betting Sunday includes a hot versus cold pairing as the resurgent Texans meet the woeful Raiders in a NFL football betting matchup from the “Black Hole”.

NFL betting handicappers have been quite pleased with the recent performance of the Houston Texans, who have covered 5 straight games.  Oakland is on a NFL football betting streak of 3 straight losses.  In NFL betting action last week Houston got their most impressive win of the season as they upset the AFC’s best team, Tennessee, 13-12 as 3 point home dogs.

It was also Houston’s 4th consecutive NFL football betting under against the total board.  In over/under NFL betting action the Texans are 9-5 over the total for the season including a road NFL football betting mark of 5-2 over the number.

While the Texans are out of playoff contention their recent streak has them talking about finishing strong to maintain momentum into next year.  Houston has an overall NFL betting record of 7-7 straight up and 7-7 against the football betting odds.

The Texans are ranked a most impressive 3rd overall on offense while ranking 21st overall on defense.  Head coach Gary Kubiak’s offensive abilities are starting to take hold for the Texans.  The Oakland Raiders have an overall NFL betting record of 3-11 straight up and 5-9 against the football betting odds.

The Raiders are just 1-6 against the spread in home NFL betting games for the season.  Last week Oakland suffered a 26-49 NFL betting loss to New England as 6.5 point home dogs.  Oakland has an over/under NFL betting mark of 5-8-1 under the total with 4 of their 7 home games going under.

The Raiders are just 5-8 against the spread as a NFL betting dog.  Oakland is bad on both sides of the line of scrimmage as they rank 31st overall on offense while ranking 27th overall on defense.  This franchise is a mere shell of what it used to be.  In this head to head NFL betting matchup the Texans have covered their last 3 meetings with Oakland.

Last year Houston won at Oakland 24-17 as 3 point dogs.
