Bills-Texans Projected Odds

Sean Koerner, The Action Network’s director of predictive analytics, uses his NFL Power Ratings to project odds for this matchup.

  • Spread: Texans -3
  • Over/under: 43.5

Bills’ Path to the Playoffs

  • Straight-Up Record: 10-6
  • Against the Spread Record: 9-6-1
  • Over/Under Record: 4-12

The Bills’ relatively smooth path to the postseason was mildly surprising given their preseason win total of 7 and 10-1 odds to even make the playoffs. But lo and behold, they clinched their berth in Week 15 with their first 10-win season since 1999.

This will be the Bills’ second postseason trip under Sean McDermott — they lost to the Jaguars in the 2017 Wild Card Round the last time they made the dance.

Texans’ Path to the Playoffs

  • Straight-Up Record: 10-6
  • Against the Spread Record: 7-8-1
  • Over/Under Record: 7-9

It wasn’t an easy path to the playoffs, but the Texans are winners of the AFC South for the second straight season.

After losing to the Colts in the 2018 Wild Card Round, Deshaun Watson & Co. are hoping for a better start to their 2019 postseason run. It helps that they’ll host this wild-card matchup in Houston, where they’re 5-3* this season. (*Note: Does not include Sunday’s result against Tennesse.)
