    Not likely. Houston is hot.

    I'm not sure how the Jets are going to score. They have no receivers, and they make up for that by having a crappy quarterback. But on a positive note, they are playing against one of the top defenses. :peace:

    My prediction, just for fun: Texans 30, Jets 10.

    I do not have any inside info -- just watch both teams.

    my thoughts as well, I dont think they will be over to muster 10 points. Houston should hang 30 w/out a problem.

    DISCLAIMER* Tebow may come off the bench in the second half and walk on water, if so 9 points should be enough.

    side note, I need 5 points out of Jets Defense to win my fantasy game and that includes return yardage so hoping Houston scores alot, hence KO returns for the Jets. :D

    No way I take the Jets +9, I predict 24-10 Houston win.

    I was actually thinking of how low a number would someone have to give me as an over under on points scored for the Jets before I'd bet the over. I'm not 100% sure I'd bet the over if the number was 4.

    In my 40+ plus years as a gambler, I just start to get nervous when everyone starts to think it's a lock.

    I'll stick with my original Jets +9, it's not like I bet the farm, just enough to keep me interested and put up with Tirico & Chucky (Gruden) as announcers.

    Absolutely true. When everyone thinks it, we always learn why they build those big hotels in the desert with our money.

    Joe just reminded me of the several times that I lost $ betting on "sure-win" games during my Las Vegas visits. Haha!

    He has a good point!

    If Arian Foster runs for 50 yds I'll win my fantasy game this week. I'm guessing he'll run more, given the porous sponge that is the Jets rush defense. Unless the Jets play Tebow on defense.

    Just for fun - my prediction is 31-6 Houston win.

    A Monday Night Home Dog?

    AND

    The public is heavy on Houston?

    That too scares the hell out of even this novice (and recreational) NFL bettor!

    Oddly enough, I'm going against both "rules" above, and I'm taking a unit on Hou -10. Despite the signs, I just can't see Houston not covering the 10. Hope I'm right!

    I like the Over 41 too, but not enough to play it. The thought was that Hou could cover it on their own, but I don't need to press my luck!!

    How about this. Houston never beat the Jets and I still can't take the.....10 points now!

    The Jets need to show "something" desperately, but so far this year Houston is just destroying teams!!!
