Texans vs Bengals Odds – A Look at the Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals will go only as far as QB Andy Dalton will take them. The three-time Pro Bowler had a horrible opening week (5 turnovers vs the Ravens) and he will need to get back on track if the Bengals are going to handle the visiting Houston Texans on Thursday Night Football. Kick-off is at 8:25 PM EST at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati and the game will be broadcast on the NFL Network.

Dalton had one of the worst Week 1 games in NFL history this past Sunday, committing five turnovers (four picks and a fumble) as the Bengals were shut out 20-0 by the Baltimore Ravens, coughing up the cash as 3-point home favorites. However, Cincinnati is a 6.5-point chalk against the Texans at press time after opening at –4. The total for Thursday’s game has dropped from 38.5 to 38.

Texans vs Bengals Odds – A Look at the Texans

Houston is coming off a nightmare game of its own, losing 29-7 to the Jacksonville Jaguars as 6-point home favorites. QB Tom Savage didn’t even make it past halftime before getting replaced by rookie Deshaun Watson. Unfortunately, Watson didn’t do much better, and he suffered a minor ankle injury after eating four sacks behind Houston’s porous offensive line. It’s believed that Watson will get the start against Cincinnati after putting in a limited practice on Monday.
