Patriots vs Texans Divisional Playoff Odds and Game Day Call

New England Patriots: AFC Champions rested and ready

After enjoying a bye week during the first round of the 2013 NFL playoffs, the defending AFC Champion New England Patriots are rested and ready for the Houston Texans. Dating back to the 2001 NFL season, New England is 6-2 S/U in the the Divisional playoffs including their 45-10 win over the Denver Broncos as 14 point chalk last season. The Patriots bring their 4th ranked pass and 7th ranked run offense into this contest.

Houston Texans: Roll into Foxboro to face the Pats as huge road underdogs

Although it wasn’t a masterpiece on offense, the Texans played stout defense as they defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 19-13 during Wild Card playoff round action last weekend in Houston. Shut out of the postseason during their first nine seasons in the NFL, Houston is back in the Divisional playoffs for a second straight year. The Texans dropped a 20-13 decision to the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional playoffs last season.

New England vs Houston Divisional Playoff Betting Lines and Prediction

For the third straight season, New England is hosting a second round playoff game as huge home chalk. In addition to being 14 point home chalk last year, the Pats were -9 point favorites against the Jets (lost 28-12) in 2010. The betonline.ag bookmakers have the Patriots as -9.5 (-105) chalk ATS and -440 on the money line. Houston gets +9.5 (-115) ATS and +365 straight up while the Over/Under is posted at 48.5 total points.

We have wrestled with this line all week as the Patriots recent 3-8 regular season record, when favorites by 9.5 points or more, is nothing to write home about. On the other side of the coin, the Texans haven’t been dominant in a game since they buried Baltimore 42-13 back in Week 7. As such, we are going to tease the Pats down to -2 points and add the Seahawks teased up to 8 points and bet a two team parlay at BetOnline!
