Thursday, November 3rd, will kick off Round 9 of the NFL through a match between two teams with very different performances. While the Texans have won just one game this season, their rivals, the Eagles, are the best team in the NFL, with 7 wins in 7 games played.
The Texans and Colts were the only teams to draw a game this season. NRG Stadium will be the venue for this great match, which could be an important milestone for the Texans: being the first team to beat the mighty Eagles this season. Houston’s team won one game, lost 5, and is stagnant at the bottom of the AFC South.
Let’s understand the teams’ recent retrospective in the analysis below, to imagine the likely scenario for Thursday’s game.

Why Bet the Texans?
There aren’t many reasons that can serve to point out the Texans as the favorite to win this match. Despite being in the AFC South division, a group easier than the others, the Texans couldn’t win more than once.
The third round was the best of the season as they visited the Jaguars and won 13-9. In the last two games, two losses: against the Titans and the Raiders.
The team has been experiencing many difficulties in scoring in the early stages of the game, as well as maintaining motivation and concentration until the last period. Against the Raiders, for example, the Texans balanced the game until the end of the third period. In the fourth half, however, they lost 21-0, demonstrating a complete lack of control.
To beat the Eagles, who have had one of the most surprising starts in NFL history, it will take a true revolution in the way they attack and defend, if they want to surprise their powerful opponent.
Why Bet the Eagles?
The Eagles’ start to the season is one of the most positive in NFL history: 7 wins in 7 games. The last victim of the mighty Philadelphia team was the Steelers: the visitors easily won the match 35-13.
The exceptional work of coach Nick Sirianni has led to a daily analysis by American experts and journalists, who try to understand the success behind this great team, which knows how to attack and defend well and has a winning mentality from the first minute of the game.
The offense of Philadelphia is among the top in the league and has an average of almost 150 yards per game, showing world-class numbers. In the game against the Steelers, the main weapon was Jalen Hurts as the quarterback amassed 4 touchdowns for an impressive demolishment.
A visit to Houston could guarantee another victory for the Eagles, increasing that incredible streak to 8 straight wins.

The bookmakers point to the victory of the Eagles with a very large margin, indicating that this confrontation could be quite easy for the visitors. The incredible streak of 7 straight wins weighs heavily in the Eagles’ favor. The Texans will see a real avalanche on the field and will need to defend well so they don’t lose by many points.
The odds mark a -850 favoritism to the Eagles, contrary to the +550 of the Texans. This kind of favoritism is not usual in the NFL, especially for visiting teams, as it looks more like soccer odds for a big team against the last of the table.
There is nothing much to say about both teams, as the Texans’ chances are slim, to say the least.
Our guess is for the Eagles to get an easy win, as their -14 SPREAD marks.
