Monday Night Football Online Odds: Texans vs Patriots
Two of the top teams in the AFC meet Monday, December 10, 2012 at 8:30 PM ET when the New England Patriots host the Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA. This game has major playoff implications for both teams, as the Texans hold the top spot in the AFC standings and the Pats are right behind them. Houston’s defense has been stellar this season, which is why we will bet on the Texans to grab the win.
Houston Texans: First to 12 wins in the league?
Houston is 11-1 on the season and 9-0 in the AFC and could become the first team in the league to reach 12 wins if they knock off the Patriots Monday night in Foxboro. Houston’s defense has allowed just 18.4 points per game this season and is 6-0 on the road so far. This game, despite an 11-1 record, could let the league know how strong the Texans really are this year if they come out of it with a win.
New England Patriots: Looking for a seventh straight win
New England, along with Houston, comes into this game with a six-game winning streak and an overall record of 9-3. The Patriots are 8-1 in the conference and could move one game closer to the top seed in the AFC standings with a win over the Texans on Monday night at home. The Patriots have been the AFC representative in the Super Bowl five of the last 11 seasons and are not ready to give up that stance.
Two of the top AFC teams this season are scheduled to collide Monday night in Massachusetts, with both teams owning a six-game winning stre coming into the game. The top online sportsbook found at Bet365.com has the Texans at +6 (-110) with a Money Line of +210 for tonight’s game. We will put our money down on the Texans and the Money Line for Monday Night Football in this AFC battle.
