Odds (Per Bovada)
Line: Texans -1
Somehow, in spite of everything the Patriots are only one point home dogs in the game, likely because it is in Foxboro, MA. The gambling schtick is you get three points for being at home, so if this were on a neutral field the Texans would allegedly be four point favorites.
This is a tough game for me, I wasn’t a huge Jacoby Brissett fan coming out, but he’s been indoctrinated by the Patriots and their staff, so he could come out and throw for three touchdowns and run for one.
On the other hand, the Texans are close to being in the upper echelon of teams in the AFC, and this could be a statement game for them.
Enjoy the Thursday Night Football Game and go Cardinals!
