Good chance to end the streak if Whites is successful.

The line opened at -10.  It ranges from -7 5 to -8.5.

 

I like being the underdog.  

 

We will continue to surprise teams if our defense continues to develop and our o line keep progressing.

I think it is a mix of the Bills being bad and Vegas hoping the Bills cover the spread as most casual bettors probably would take most opponents to cover against the Bills.  This is a guess though as I dont know anything about gambling lol.

 

 Vegas isnt in the game to pick a side

 

they win from the rake

 

you said a lot of bettors wont take the bills, well that may be your answer right there, should the line be even higher?

 

maybe the line is actually correct to get even money on both sides

John McClain kinda let himself go. I don’t think he could fit in those air shafts at Nakatomi Plaza.

From the Athletic: Aaron Reiss

 

Deshaun Watson’s 'fight my ass off' Mentality is a Risky Proposition for the Texans

 

Deshaun-Watson-4-1024x730.jpg

 

Facing second and goal, about 10 yards from the Dallas end zone, Deshaun Watson surveyed the field, found no open receiver and broke the pocket. He escaped for the left pylon and a chance at a score midway through the second quarter.
 
He is returning from an ACL tear, and he could have gained a few yards before stepping out of bounds. Instead, he saw three Cowboys closing in on him and kept sprinting toward the end zone. The trio of Dallas defenders seemed to all collide with him at once, knocking the quarterback out of bounds and onto his butt.
 
“Dallas was very physical, and Deshaun is very physical,” coach Bill O’Brien said. “But obviously those are plays we want to cut down on, and we’re going to work hard to do that moving forward because we know that’s not a sustainable way to play.”

Sure. Let's make sure he's James Lofton circa 1990. 

 

I think you mean “post” 1990. 😛

I’m kidding. I mistakenly corrected someone else’s circa/post in this thread. So I’m making fun of myself.

 

...it amuses me. 😬

Don't the Texans only have 1 win, with Watt and Watson back?

That spread seems crazy. Bills defence plays the way it has and the Bills have a chance to wind the game, or atleast easy cover that spread

Bills literally have CLOSE TO zero offense, even at home. Thus the line.

The Texans haven't really been a better team though, not enough for a TD favorite.

They beat the Colts and Cowboys, and lost to the Pats, Titans, and Giants

Seems like a pretty generous spread to me also.

If the Bills take care of the Texans, they are back in the AFC East race.

Isn't that the smallest spread so far this season?  We're gaining ground!

It would help tremendously, but don't sleep on Fuller or Coutee. Watson's ability to run is equally dangerous, although, I suspect if the Bills have to choose, it will be to keep tabs on the receivers, try to slow the run game and make Watson run to win.

Darnold Creating Buzz, More Week 5 News & Notes

 

7. Deshaun Watson is still taking too many hits, and it’s obvious the offensive line won’t be truly fixed in Houston without some reinforcements, but give the Texans staff credit for managing the problem on the fly over the last few weeks. Putting Julien Davenport back at left tackle helped, as did the emergence of Kendall Lamm, who’s now starting at right tackle. And the staff has done its part with chips and doubles, and calls to get the ball out quick. It’s not perfect, of course, but it’s better than it was, which is why they’re getting more from Watson and their playmakers.

Fuller and Coutee are no slouches.
