Los Angeles Rams vs. Houston Texans Odds: 79% of Bets on Rams to Upset Texans

For the night cap, the Los Angeles Rams will be taking on the Houston Texans tonight out in L.A. Matthew Stafford will not be under center, as he is still recovering from an elbow injury, so instead John Wolford will get the start at quarterback.

For the Texans, they plan on playing some starters. Lovie Smith plans to ramp up Davis Mills and the rest of the roster in the second week of the preseason. Who comes out on top? Here's a breakdown of the Los Angeles Rams vs. Houston Texans odds.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Houston Texans Spread

TeamSpreadHandle%Bets%
Texans-2.559%20%
Rams+2.541%80%

A whopping 80% of the bets are on the Rams at +2.5. There is zero faith in the Houston Texans, who have one of the most barren rosters in the league, even without Matthew Stafford getting much action. Even if the starters for the Texans get more time will it matter against a team as deep as the Rams?

Los Angeles Rams vs. Houston Texans Moneyline

TeamMLHandle%Bets%
Texans-13557%21%
Rams+11543%79%

The Los Angeles Rams have a whopping 79% of bets on them at +115. While the number of bets is high, the handle is not as they only have 43% of the money on them to win against Houston tonight. Perhaps this big money fading the public but I don't think you overthink this one, just take the better team.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Houston Texans Total

O/UTotalHandle%Bets%
Over37.574%73%
Under37.526%27%

The betting public is all over the over in this game as the 37.5 number does feel kind of low I must admit. The Rams first preseason game went well over this number while the Texans first preseason game only saw 30 combined points. The overs have been good to us so far in the preseason and with a number this low it's easy to see why people like the over tonight.
