The Eagles were looking unbeatable until last week’s loss in Chicago – will they be able to rebound against an underachieving Texans team that still has a shot in the AFC South?
NFL Betting Lines
POINT SPREAD – Texans +9 (-115), Eagles -9 (-105)

Last Sunday, the Texans broke a four-game losing streak by beating the Titans (and their third-string quarterback) 20-0 to cover as 4.5-point home favorites. The Eagles were three-point road favorites in Chicago, but lost for the first time since Week 7. The Texans are 5-6 overall and 4-6-1 against the spread, while the Eagles are 7-4 overall but 5-6 ATS.
The Texans began the year 2-0 on the road, beating the Redskins and Raiders, but have lost their last three road games, falling to the Colts by 13, the Chargers by six, and the Jaguars by seven. The Eagles have won their last three home games, beating the Falcons by 14, the Colts by two, and the Giants by 10.
The Eagles have scored 28.18 points per game, second-most in the NFL. The Texans have allowed 26.09 points per game, which ranks 26th.
Four of the last six Texans games have gone Over, as have four of the last five Texans road games. Six of the last seven Eagles games have gone Over.
If I was going to bet 100 points on this game: 25 on the Eagles to cover, 75 on the Over.
