  • Opening point spread: Texans -3
  • Opening moneyline: Texans -185/Broncos +155
  • Opening total: Over/Under 45 points scored
  • Time: 1 p.m. ET Sunday (CBS)

UPDATE 10 A.M. ET SUNDAY: BetMGM moved the Texans from -3 to -3.5 (-115), then adjusted to -3.5 flat on Monday. Thursday brought a dip to Houston -3 (-115), and the line is now -3 flat.

Denver is a trendy underdog today, with spread tickets and money running 2/1 at BetMGM. Further, on the moneyline, tickets are 6/1-plus and money almost 9/1 on the Broncos.

The total opened at 45 last Sunday, got to 46.5 Monday, 47 Tuesday and 47.5 Wednesday. This morning brought a nudge down to 47, with 63% of tickets/54% of money on the Under.

UPDATE 6 P.M. ET WEDNESDAY: Houston opened -3 at TwinSpires and is now -3.5, while getting 60% of early bets/66% of early cash.

"Bettors are expecting a bounce-back game for Houston," Lucas said, before touching on the Broncos-Texans total. "It's lopsided money on the Over so far this week."

The total climbed from 46 to 47.5, with 70% of bets/89% of cash on the Over.

UPDATE 10 P.M. ET SUNDAY: Denver (6-5 SU/5-5-1 ATS) is arguably the hottest team in the league, riding a 5-0 SU/4-1 ATS streak. In Week 12, the Broncos topped a solid Cleveland outfit 29-12 laying 2 points at home.

Surprising Houston saw its three-game SU run halted in Week 12. The Texans (6-5 SU/5-6 ATS) came up just short to Jacksonville 24-21 catching 1 point at home. Matt Ammendola had his 58-yard field goal come up inches short, banging off the crossbar in the final minute.

Houston is stable 3-point chalk at The SuperBook.

"These are two teams that I think the public is curious about, with Denver on the long winning streak and Houston being so exciting with C.J. Stroud," Michaelson said. "Houston easily could've won today. We felt opening under 3 was inviting the wiseguys to lay the favorite."
