The New England Patriots are 3-point favorites over the Houston Texans, although roughly 70% of the money has been placed on Bill Belichick and company. Oddsmakers aren't feeling the love for the Patriots right now, especially after that ugly defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Quarterback Tom Brady has led the Patriots to a 48-16 record (0.750) when favored by 3 or more while on the road, which seems like pretty fair odds and expectations for a New England victory.
The Texans defense has been stifling as of late, averaging just 13.0 points against over their past five games. While the Buffalo Bills seemed to have cracked the code and posted 30 points, Houston has quality victories against the Bengals and the Jets over that span of time.
The over/under stands at 44.5, implying a 23.75-20.75 Patriots victory. A whooping 95% of money has been placed on the over as many expect a far higher scoring game.
Can you predict the final score?
