Houston Texans Wagering Analysis
The Texans are coming off their bye week and find themselves one game behind the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars who won their games this weekend. With the AFC South unexpectedly competitive this year, the Texans need a win against the Seahawks to keep pace with their division rivals.

Deshaun Watson, who leads the league in touchdown passes, will need to continue his stellar play for the Texans to have a chance to win this game in what will be a very hostile environment.

Thanks to Watson, the Texans have the second highest scoring offense in the league. They Texans have gone over 30 points in each of their last four games and will be hoping to make it five games in a row.

NFL Week 8 Odds Texans Seahawks

Houston has the 14th best total defense in the NFL this season, but they haven’t been able to keep their opponents out of the end zone, allowing 24.5 points per game, which is 24th in the league.

Seattle Seahawks Wagering Analysis
The Seahawks are second in the NFC West, behind the surprising Los Angeles Rams, who are 5-2. After a 1-2 start, the Seahawks have won their last three games, and are going for their fourth straight win.

Offensively, the Seahawks are scoring 22 points per game, which is 16th in the league. Their defense has been pretty good as well, holding opponents to 17.4 points per game, which is 6th in the league.

The Texans offense is the best the Seahawks have faced so far, so it will be interesting to see how their defense, which has struggled against mobile quarterbacks in the past, handle the Texans’ rookie phenom.

In NFL Week 8 odds the Seahawks are favored to win by 5.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 43.5 combined points.

Houston has been playing well recently, but a rookie quarterback going against the Legion of Boom in Seattle is the perfect recipe for disaster. Take Seattle -5.5.
