Houston at Denver

2 units on Houston +5.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: loss
2 units on Houston +190 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 5.8) RESULT: loss
Like this situation a lot. Denver is coming off a big win over division rival and up-and-comer Seattle. They viewed that as a good test and passed it with flying colors. They'll be a bit more relaxed this week, especially knowing that lowly Houston, straight off the heals of a 38-3 spanking at the hands of the Steelers, is strolling into town. Houston's going to ready to put last week's performance behind them and they can do that with an upset win here. Road teams in preseason conference games when playing an opponent off a road win cover the spread about eight of ten times. Houst can surprise in this one and we might just take that to the bank. One unit on Houston +5.5 and one unit on them to win straight-up.
