  • Looking at the Philadelphia Eagles vs Houston Texans odds, it’s the Eagles who are set as 14-point road favorites in the NFL Week 9 TNF game
  • The Eagles are 6-1 ATS in their last seven TNF games. Houston is 3-10 ATS when playing on TNF
  • Read on for the Eagles vs Texans odds and our best bets below

The Philadelphia Eagles (7-0, 5-2 ATS) are rolling onward as the NFL’s last unbeaten team, heading into a favorable matchup against the Houston Texans (1-5-1, 3-3-1 ATS) on the Week 9 TNF game.

Interestingly to note a year ago, the Arizona Cardinals, who were the NFL’s last unbeaten squad, finally met defeat at 7-0 on a TNF game. However, they were playing the Green Bay Packers, not the woeful Texans.

Houston isn’t merely bad this season, the Texans are traditionally bad on TNF. They’re 3-10 all-time ATS when playing in the NFL’s Thursday prime time showcase.

Philadelphia, on the other hand, is a solid 6-1 ATS in the club’s last seven appearances on TNF. No surprise then that even though they’re on the road, oddsmakers are setting up the Eagles as 14-point away favorites.

Eagles Can Score the Football

Philadelphia is the NFL’s #3 scoring offense. The Eagles are averaging 28.0 points per game this season.

By contrast, the Texans are producing 16.6 PPG. That’s 29th in the league.

Houston’s defense will be well familiar with Eagles WR AJ Brown, the former Tennessee Titans player. He caught three TD pass in the Week 8 win over Pittsburgh.

Can Texans Break their Eagles Goose Egg?

Since a season-opening tie against the Indianapolis Colts, the Texans are 1-5 SU and 3-3 ATS. Houston is 5-2 ATS in the last seven home games against teams with a winning record.

Philadelphia is perfect against Houston, though. The Eagles are 5-0 SU in five previous games facing the Texans. Six of Houston’s seven games this season have been decided by 10 or fewer points.

Injury Bug Biting Both Clubs

The Texans are carrying injury concerns at wide receiver. Veteran Brandin Cooks is listing as questionable with a wrist injury. However, he’s been a full participant at practice. WR Nico Collins (groin) hasn’t been practicing. Houston is already without rookie WR John Metchie III (leukemia).

On defense, LDT Maliek Collins (chest) and WLB Christian Harris (thigh) are also questionable. Harris was limited in practice this week, while Collins was out.

Not only are the Eagles beating everyone in sight, but they’re also beating the injury bug. Not a single starter is carrying an injury designation. Backup left defensive tackle Jordan Davis, out with ankle injury, is the only second-string player on the injury list.

Eagles vs Texans Prediction

The Eagles will win this game. Their implied probability of victory at a moneyline of -800 is 88.89%.

Covering the spread, though, could prove more of a challenge. Philadelphia is 3-1-1 ATS in the past five against Houston, but just 1-2 ATS on the road this season.

This will be the 12th time since the start of last season that Houston is a double-digit underdog. The Texans are 6-5 ATS in the previous 11 games. At home, the Texans are 3-1 ATS.

  • Pick: Houston Texans +13 (-110), 1 unit
  • TNF record (0-0 ML, 2-5 ATS, 1-0 O/U)
