Houston has won six of last seven against Cincinnati

The Houston Texans are 6-2 SU and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Texans will try to pick up a third straight win on Saturday night at home against the Bengals.

  • The total has gone UNDER in the Bengals' last three games against the Texans.
  • The Texans are 2-19-1 ATS in their last 22 games at night.
  • The Texans are 6-1 SU in their last seven games at home.

With two straight drive-ending interceptions against Jacksonville last Sunday, Brock Osweiler finally ran out of leash for the Texans. Houston replaced him with backup Tom Savage, who completed 63.1 percent of his passes and passed for 260 yards in leading Houston to a comeback win. Savage will get his first career start in place of Osweiler on Saturday.

After missing each of the team's last five games, A.J. Green is expected to return from his hamstring injury on Saturday, though his snaps will likely be limited. Cincinnati is a disappointing 5-8-1 SU and 4-9-1 ATS this season, but has played better of late with a 2-1 SU and ATS record over its last three games.

The Bengals are 6-1 SU and 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven games as an underdog of 2.5 points or less, but are 0-10-1 SU in their last 11 games against teams with winning records.
