Minnesota at Houston
Sunday 10/10 01:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Houston +4 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: loss
2 units on Houston +170 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 5.4) RESULT: loss
The Texans are on their first winning streak in team history. They have proven they can win in this league and they believe. They now get Minnesota at home. Will this team and home crowd be fired up on Sunday? You bet! Minnesota enters this game without it's top two running backs, Michael Bennett and Onterio Smith. Moe Williams may not play and if he does, it won't be full-time. They also come in with one of the worst defenses in the league, surrendering 22 points per game. Underdogs fare very well in this league when facing teams with poor passing defenses. Also, medium-sized home underdogs with good offenses also do well. Houston qualifies for a trend related to that here that is 23-5 against the spread. One unit on Houston +4 and one unit on them to win.
