Deshaun Watson Injury Keeping Bills-Texans Betting Line Off the Board

Oct 10, 2018 12:22 PM EDT
  • The betting line for Sunday's Buffalo Bills-Houston Texans (1 p.m. ET) matchup is off the board because of Deshaun Watson's chest injury.
  • Watson is currently considered day-to-day, and sportsbooks will likely wait until there is more clarity regarding his status.
  • Using The Action Network's NFL power ratings, we offer a projected point spread assuming that Watson will play.

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson suffered a chest injury during last Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. After initially leaving the game, Watson ultimately returned to lead the Texans to a 19-16 overtime victory, but the second-year player was clearly limited.

According to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson, Watson is considered day-to-day for the Texans’ upcoming Week 6 game against the Buffalo Bills.

With Watson’s status for Sunday still up in the air, sportsbooks have yet to open a Bills-Texans betting line as they wait for more clarity regarding the quarterback’s health.

Assuming Watson is healthy enough to play, NFL power rankings from The Action Network’s Sean Koerner project this line to be Texans -9.

Week 6 lookahead lines from the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook offered a similar point spread last week, posting Houston as an early 8-point home favorite.
