Wild Card Odds: Texans vs Bengals Preview

The Cincinnati Bengals are 7-1 SU and ATS over their last eight games and will look to stay hot when they face the Houston Texans this Saturday at Reliant Stadium.

The Wild Card odds action in the AFC features this game and the Colts vs Ravens game. And it pits a Bengals team that has lost four straight playoff games against a team against a slumping Houston team, which finished the regular season 1-3 SU and ATS after starting 11-1 SU.

Houston is 4-0 SU and ATS in its last four games against the Bengals. The total has gone UNDER in four of Houston's last five games and in seven of Cincinnati's last eight games.

The Bengals have been hot on the road at 6-1 SU & ATS and they have also won and covered their past four games as a road underdog.

NFL Wild Card betting trends

If you had bet all NFC home teams and all AFC road teams the past four Wild Card weekends, you would have gone 12-4 ATS and pocketed some nice profits.

NFC home teams are 6-2 ATS the past four NFL post-seasons, while AFC road teams are 6-2 ATS over the same timeframe.

But Wild Card betting has hardly provided reliable patterns in recent years and it is a much different animal to handicap than the regular season.

NFL Odds: Week 17 NFL Line Moves

The Baltimore Ravens can still improve their playoff seeding in the AFC heading into the final weekend of the NFL's regular season, and they're involved in the biggest move of the week so far on the NFL betting lines at the sportsbooks.
