The Texans are coming off of a tough loss where they couldn’t convert from the 1 yard line from the in the final minute of a 28-21 loss against the Cardinals. Quarterback Matt Schaub has had an excellent start to the season, where he is third in the NFL with 1,418 passing yards, but the problem for the Texans have come in the red zone where they are 29th in the league, scoring on 13 of their 18 chances.

Spread – Lay it down on The Bengals to cover the spread this week. Look for the Bengals to keep things rolling again this week, with a big day from the offense. Look for Cedric Benson to have another big game after he rushed for 120 yards against the Ravens defense who have not given up a 100 yards on the ground in 40 games. This is an important home game for the Bengals to keep on top of their very tough division. Bet on the Bengals to get it done and cover the 5 point spread (-110).
Over/Under – I like the total to go over the 46 points. Look for there to be a lot of scoring in this one, both quarterbacks can do some damage, and put up some big numbers in the air. Look for the Texans to figure out their red zone woes making this one a high scoring offensive battle, bringing the total over the 46 points. Bet on the OVER 46 in this game (-110) at Bodog.com.
