NFL Odds: Pats Heavy Favorites Against Struggling Houston

Betting On The 2013 Nfl Playoffs




In early December, an AFC postseason clash between the Houston Texans and New England Patriots would have been touted as one of the must-watch events of the playoffs. Fast forward to mid-January, however, and the NFL odds show just how much things can change.

Now favored with a 10-point advantage on the NFL moneyline, Tom Brady and the Patriots will have to come up with some way of covering a lofty spread against a team once touted as one of the most fearsome on the Super Bowl futures.


These days, while the Pats sit second on the list with 7/2 odds of winning Super Bowl XLVII, the Texans are at the bottom with 18/1 NFL odds.


Sure they crashed and burned to the tune of a 1-3 finish in the regular season, sure they didn’t beat the Cincinnati Bengals over Wild Card Weekend anywhere near as convincingly as they ought to, but still, the worst NFL odds of anybody left in the postseason seems a little bit harsh.


Before their late season collapse, the Texans were an 11-1 AFC South force. Arian Foster was at the top of his game, Matt Schaub was doing everything asked of him under center, and then it all went haywire following a crushing Week 13 loss to, you guessed it, these New England Patriots.


Weigh in on the rematch today.
