MNF Hits Mexico for Texans-Raiders Clash

The Houston Texans (6-3) and Oakland Raiders (7-2) are at the top of their respective divisions, and a win in Week 11 could go a long way toward securing a playoff berth. The squads will collide under the bright lights of Monday Night Football in a special edition at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in nine of the Texans' last 11 games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The Texans are 5-19 SU and 7-17 ATS in their last 24 games as an underdog of 5.5 or less.
  • The Texans are 10-3 SU in their last 13 games after winning as an underdog.

Oddsmakers opened the Raiders as 5-point home chalk with a total of 46.

OVER bettors will be watching this one with a keen eye. The OVER is 3-1 in the previous four contests between the squads, and the Raiders have also gone above the closing total in seven of their nine games this year.

Winning three in a row against the AFC has been brutally tough for the Raiders in recent years. Oakland is a measly 4-14 SU in their last 18 after consecutive conference wins. They’re in that spot again in light of triumphs over Denver and Tampa Bay.

The Texans are benefiting from playing in a weak division, but their offense is going to need to step it up if they want to compete in the postseason. Starting quarterback Brock Osweiler, who signed a four-year contract worth $72 million in the offseason, managed a career-worst 99 yards in Week 10’s victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Houston Texans betting odds line opened as 3.5-point underdogs in this one at most sportsbooks tracked here at Odds Shark (including BetOnline), while the total was hovering around 46.5 at most shops.
