How To Bet On Bengals Texans – The Texans May Not Be What They Appear To Be

Cincinnati Bengals @ Houston Texans – AFC Wild Card Round – Saturday January 5, 2013 4:30PM

The NFL betting world is still buzzing about the Houston Texans’ fall from the top team in the AFC to the number three seed in the AFC playoffs. The Texans needed to win its last two games to secure a first-round bye and home field advantage throughout the playoffs, but Houston could not come through. It could be that the injuries on the defensive side of the ball are finally getting to Houston, or it could just be that the team is not prepared to handle the pressure of being the best team in the conference. Now that Houston no longer has to worry about being the best team in the AFC, it can start to focus on trying to extend its playoff run.

The sports betting experts did not expect the Cincinnati Bengals to make the playoffs at the expense of the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the fans certainly did not expect the Bengals to be the hot AFC North team as the playoffs open. The Bengals is riding a three-game winning streak that includes a week 17 win over the AFC North champion Baltimore Ravens. But is Cincinnati as good as it has appeared to be the past few weeks? Is the Texans as bad as it has appeared to be in the last two games? A lot of interesting questions will be answered by this game.

Why the Texans Will Win

The sportsbook experts had been whispering about the Denver Broncos all season long, but the Texans continued to fight for respect in the AFC. When the season ended, the Texans had been knocked down to third in the AFC and none of the betting experts were especially surprised. The only thing that remains a mystery is how the potent Houston defense continues to give up points and yards despite having one of the best defensive lines in the game. All of that will come to bear as the Texans right the wrongs that it has created in the past two weeks.

Why the Bengals Will Win

Cincinnati fans need to remember that this may not be the year for the Bengals to make a deep playoff run, but that year is coming. The Bengals has a young offense that continues to develop and continues to get better each week. If Cincinnati can find some consistency in its defensive pass rush, then this will be a potent team to deal with in the future. But it is just not in the cards this season.

The Bottom Line

This will be a good game between two teams that are trying to prove their own points. The Bengals is trying to prove that it belongs in the playoffs and the Texans is trying to prove that the last two weeks were just bumps in the road. The Texans will get the win, but this is the only playoff win Houston will get this season.

Pick: Houston Texans
