NFL Betting: Miami Dolphins vs. Houston Texans

On Sunday afternoon, the Texans will look to rebound from a horrifying NFL betting defeat when they defend Reliant Stadium against the suddenly red hot Dolphins.

It’s the sixth week of the NFL season, and has all of the action your NFL betting appetite craves. Kickoff from the Lone Star State is set for 1:00 ET. The Texans have dominated the Dolphins in their only three series meetings going 3-0 SU and 2-1 ATS.

After ending New England’s massive winning streak two weeks ago, the Fins were back on the field against the Chargers last Sunday afternoon as 6.5-point underdogs per the closing NFL betting lines. Pro Football betting fans that backed the Dolphins cashed their second consecutive winning ticket with the shocking 17-10 victory over San Diego.

RB Ronnie Brown took 12 direct snaps and carried the ball 24 times for 125 yards and a touchdown, while QB Chad Pennington completed 22-of-29 passes for 228 yards and a score. The Fins have improved their offense by over 50 yards per game from 2007, and now come into Week 6 ranked #10 in the NFL averaging a shade over 341 yards per game.

NFL betting gurus who wagered on the Texans took what has to be classified as the worst beat of the ’08 season when Houston choked away a sure victory by giving up 21 points in just over two minutes against the Colts.

The Texans were 3-point underdogs on the football betting line against the defending AFC South champs, and looked poised to notch their first victory of the season when they took a 27-10 lead with 8:18 remaining. That said; QB Sage Rosenfels had a nightmarish 4th quarter, fumbling twice and throwing an interception in Houston’s final three drives of the game.

In spite of the fact that they are still winless on the season, offshore oddsmakers have installed the winless Texans as 3-point favorites against the Fish; the ‘total’ currently sits at 45. Miami is just 2-7 SU and 3-6 ATS in its L/9 games against the AFC South.

The Texans haven’t been anything to write home about against the AFC East either posting a 2-5 SU and 1-6 ATS mark since 2004.
