NFL gambling fans have seen both teams win their last two games entering this matchup with the NFL gambling odds and renew their talk of a wild card playoff berth. The Houston Texans have a NFL gambling record of 4-3 straight up and 3-3-1 with the NFL gambling odds.
Last week the Texans scored a 24-21 NFL gambling win over the San Francisco 49ers. The Buffalo Bills have a NFL gambling record of 3-4 straight up and 4-3 against the spread. Last week the Bills scored a 20-9 NFL gambling payout at Carolina.
The Bills NFL gambling success has come, coincidently or not, depending on one’s point of view, with backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick having taken over for the injured Trent Edwards.
Fitzpatrick’s stats are not as good as Edwards but neither signal caller would be mistaken for Peyton Manning and the Bills have beaten the NFL gambling odds both times since Edwards left the lineup.
Fitzpatrick will get the start for this NFL gambling matchup. Houston would figure to have a significant NFL gambling advantage at quarterback with Matt Schaub, who has a 104.4 QB rating and 66% completion percentage with 2074 yards and a 16/5 touchdown to interception ratio.
The Texans rush defense has been one of the best in NFL gambling over the past month as they have allowed only 194 yards in 4 games heading into this matchup. “It’s been very good the last month”, said Houston coach Gary Kodiak.
“We played very sound in the run game, and I think that’s gone with the success of our team the past few weeks because our defense has stepped up and played so well”. Houston has had NFL gambling success on the road recently with 5 payouts in their last 7 games.
The Texans have gone under the total in 4 out of their last 6 away from home. Buffalo, conversely, has covered just 1 out of their last 8 games at home. The Bills have gone under the total in 5 out of their last 6 at home.
