Houston Texans vs Cincinnati Bengals Odds

  • Opening point spread: Bengals -7
  • Opening moneyline: Bengals -310/Texans +250
  • Opening total: Over/Under 46 points scored
  • Time: 1 p.m. ET Sunday (CBS)

UPDATE 10:30 A.M. ET SUNDAY: The Bengals are now down to -5.5 at BetMGM, after opening -8 last Sunday. Cincy dipped to -7.5/-7 Monday, toggled between -7/-6.5 much of the week, then fell to -6/-5.5 this morning.

Cincinnati is netting 70% of spread tickets/58% of spread money. And moneyline action is running dead even. But as BetMGM Nevada's Scott Shelton noted: "There are a ton of parlays and teasers on the Bengals. Cincy will be one of the most-teased teams of the day, along with Baltimore."

So an outright Texans upset would likely be welcomed behind the counter.

BetMGM's total opened at 46.5, bottomed out at 46 Monday, peaked at Tuesday and slowly made its way back to 46.5 by this morning. The Over is landing 52% of tickets/56% of money.

UPDATE 4:30 P.M. ET WEDNESDAY: Cincinnati hit TwinSpires' NFL Week 10 odds market as 6.5-point chalk and is up to -7. Ticket count is 2/1-plus and money 4/1 on the Bengals at midweek.

"Lopsided money on Cincy already. The Bengals are winners of four straight. We're hoping that ends Sunday," Lucas said.

The total is up a point to 47.5, with tickets and money in the 2/1 range on the Over.

UPDATE 11:30 P.M. ET SUNDAY: After a sluggish start, Cincinnati (5-3 SU/4-3-1 ATS) is on a 4-0 SU and ATS surge. In Week 10 against Buffalo, the Bengals won 24-18 as 1.5-point home favorites.

Houston is a perhaps surprising 4-4 SU and ATS. In Week 9, rookie QB C.J. Stroud led a last-minute TD drive against Tampa Bay, lifting the Texans to a 39-37 victory as 2.5-point home faves.

The Texans-Bengals game came off The SuperBook's board once Bills-Bengals kicked off Sunday night. Texans-Bengals will go back up Monday morning.
