NFL Betting Preview for Denver Broncos and Houston Texans
- Denver Broncos -7.5 Points Spread at 11/8 (2.38) with William Hill
- Falcons @ Seahawks, Under 42.5 Total Points at 27/20 (2.35) with Betfair
- Houston Texans -3.5 Point Spread at 20/21 (1.95) with bet365
Week 5 of the regular NFL season, saw just one perfect record survive as the Eagles and Broncos faltered, leaving the Minnesota Vikings as the only undefeated side.
At the other end, the Cleveland Browns continue the unenviable run of remaining the only side without a victory, going down 33-13 to the Patriots.
Denver Broncos @ San Diego Chargers (1.25am, Friday)
The Broncos visit the Chargers with both sides looking to bounce back from defeats last week. The Broncos lost out to fellow title contenders the Falcons last week, with their debutant quarterback Paxton Lynch having a game to forget.
The Chargers will be wondering if their luck is out having lost their fourth close game of the season, this time going down by three to the Raiders. The Broncos are strong favourites to win and can inflict the Chargers heaviest defeat of the season.
Atlanta Falcons @ Seattle Seahawks (9.25pm, Sunday)
The in-form Falcons travel to a rested Seahawks on Sunday night, with both sides looking to stake their claim as potential Super Bowl challengers.
The Falcons ended the Broncos unbeaten run with a 7pt win in Colorado, making it four wins on the bounce, as they sacked their rookie quarterback six times. The Seahawks had the weekend off, but will be looking to a third straight win, having beaten the 49ers and Jets previously. Expect a low scoring match dominated by both sets of defences.
Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans (1.30am, Monday)
The Colts take on the Texans in a battle that could go a long way to deciding a tight AFC South division. The Colts pulled off a valuable six point win over the Chicago Bears last weekend, having returned from a tiring trip to London the week before.
The Texans were beaten by the perfect Vikings last week, with a pass completion rate of less than 50% which is a worry, however Houston won’t always be playing the Vikings thankfully. We think that the Texans defence should just win out over a decent Colts offence in a tough game to call.
