NFL Betting: Week 15 Opening Lines

The Houston Texans didn't come close to covering the spread against the New England Patriots on Monday night, but they still enter their Week 15 matchup as a big favorite on the NFL betting lines at home against the Indianapolis Colts.

The Texans were thumped 42-14 by the Patriots as a 5.5-point road underdog on the NFL odds on Monday Night Football, dropping them to 11-2 SU and 8-5 ATS on the season. The Colts, who sit at 9-4 both SU and ATS this year, opened as 9-point road underdogs against the Texans for Sunday afternoon at 5Dimes.

Houston and Indianapolis split their two meetings last season both 1-1 both SU and ATS; this will be their first matchup in 2012. Both of those 2011 results were UNDER results for totals bettors at the sportsbooks.

Tom Brady and the Patriots, meanwhile, opened as 7-point favorites at 5Dimes against the San Francisco 49ers for this week's Sunday Night Football contest. The Pats' victory on Monday night moved them to 10-3 SU and 8-4-1 ATS on the season, and they're the league's top OVER team at 10-3 on the totals through 13 games.

The Niners (9-3-1 SU, 8-5 ATS) are 0-3 both SU and ATS over their past three games against the Patriots, although the teams haven't met on the gridiron since the 2008 season. San Francisco covered the 10.5-point spread in their 27-13 win over Miami last week.
