Las Vegas Raiders vs. Houston Texans – Week 7 Betting Preview


The Las Vegas Raiders and Houston Texans will square off in Sin City after both teams got some early-season rest with a Week 6 bye. 


Prior to their brief hiatus, the Raiders lost a heartbreaker to the Chiefs on Monday Night Football thanks in part to a failed two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter. At 1-4, things aren’t going how Raiders fans expected, but the Texans represent a nice bounce back opportunity, with Vegas shaping up to be about a touchdown favorite.

The last time we saw the Texans, they reminded everyone that the Jaguars are still the Jaguars with an ugly 13-6 victory. It was Houston’s first non-negative result since tying the Indianapolis Colts in Week 1, but they’ve still lost to every opponent outside of the AFC South this season. They’ll look to ride rookie running back Dameon Pierce to their second victory.
