Bettors not interested in the Jets as money keeps pouring in on Houston

Through five weeks of NFL football, home underdogs are 17-11 against the spread (.607) after posting a 3-2 mark in Week 5 entering Monday night’s matchup.

And if it were up to Las Vegas bookmakers, that trend would hold true tonight.

Matt Schaub & Andre JohnsonMatt Schaub and Andre Johnson have covered the spread in all four of their games this season.

Since the Houston-New York game hit the board early last week, a steady flow of money has been coming in on the 4-0 Texans, who also boast the league’s only undefeated mark against the spread this season.

“At the moment, it’s been all Houston money,” Cantor Race & Sportsbook Director Mike Colbert told the National Football Post Monday afternoon. “I don’t think the sharps buy back unless the line hits Houston -10.”

Houston opened as a 7-point favorite for Monday’s conference showdown with the Jets, but that line has been on the move and is now posted as high as -9.5 in Las Vegas and -10 offshore.

“It’s all Texans money, as the bettors are not interested in the Jets with this matchup,” Johnny Avello, the Executive Director of Race & Sports for Wynn Las Vegas told the NFP on Monday.”

Our own Sportsbook Spy indicates that approximately 72% of the bets placed for Monday’s game are coming in on the Texans, with 69% of the action backing the over (40.5).

If it’s any consolation to bookmakers, the Texans are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games against the Jets. Unfortunately, this Houston team is also 16-5-2 ATS in their last 23 games overall.
