Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -11 +102 at Pinnacle
The NFL odds for this Monday Night Football matchup opened up at -11 for the Bengals at home, and has since gone down a little to -10.5. It wouldn't be a surprise if the line moved back up as Cincinnati has proven they're for real, but again, everyone is waiting to see what they do in the playoffs. Andy Dalton still has something to prove because he has never done well in primetime games, and while he played a good game last Thursday, it was against Cleveland. Houston is a better team than their record shows, especially defensively, led by J.J. Watt. The Texans are 14th in yards allowed, but they'll be dealing with a balanced Cincinnati offense that is seventh through the air and 11th on the ground. The Bengals are also third in points scored and only Kansas City, Green Bay and New England have fewer turnovers than their eight. Houston is coming off a seven-sack game against Tennessee, and Cincinnati has to keep the rush off Dalton.

Injuries
DE Jadeveon Clowney didn't practice on Thursday because of a bad back, and CB Kareem Jackson is probably out with a sprained ankle. However, T Duane Brown (concussion) and WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) are back at practice, so that is encouraging for the Texans.

T Andrew Whitworth didn't practice for the Bengals, but he usually does and he'll play this week. However, T Andre Smith still has to pass concussion tests. Keep an eye out for LB Vontaze Burfict, who hurt his knee against the Browns and didn't return to the game. 

 

Trends
The Texans are 3-6 ATS in their last nine games overall, and they're 1-3-1 ATS in their last five on the road. The Bengals are 7-0-1 ATS so far this year, and 4-0-1 ATS in their last five at home. The total sits at 47, and both teams have gone over five times this season.

The Bengals are 4-5 SU and 3-6 ATS against the Texans since 2002, and in Cincinnati, Houston is 2-2 SU and 3-1 ATS in four games.
