Betting market: Just 32% of bettors are on the Redskins, who have gone from -2 to -3 since opening. This line has moved back and forth a few times between 2.5 and 3, with sharp action coming in on both Houston -2.5 and Washington +3.

With more than 80% of dollars on the under, this total has dropped from 43 to 42/42.5 around the market (see live data¬†here). — Mark Gallant

Trends to know: Houston is coming off a bye week, which should give it extra time to get healthy, practice and prepare. According to our Bet Labs data, teams coming off a bye week are 238-206-14 (54%) against the spread since 2003.

Road favorites after a bye have been even more profitable: 58-26-2 (69%) ATS. — John Ewing

The Washington Redskins are simply playing a different game than every other team. They are averaging 19.6 PPG (27th) and allowing 19.4 PPG (T-fourth) this season.

Since 2003, teams scoring fewer than 20 PPG and allowing fewer than 20 PPG are 240-181-4 (57%) to the over when playing at home, profiting bettors 46.5 units.

When that home team has seen at least 60% of its games go under the total entering a game in this spot, the over is 144-93-3 (60.8%), covering by an average of three points in a 250-game sample size. — Evan Abrams
