The Raiders are on the road to the Texans this week, with the point spread being +9.5 for the Oakland Raiders.

The Raiders form this season has been all over the place.  A road win against the Chiefs, a close loss against the Chargers, and a heavy defeat at home to the Broncos.

Houston Texans have had no luck at home, with losses to the Jaguars and the Jets, although they did manage to squeak out a win against the Titans.  They’ve faced superior opposition for the opening few weeks, so this is a game where we are able to see just how good the Texans are, playing against a team that they should be able to beat.

However based on the previous 3 weeks, our computer system predicts a much closer game than the line anticipates.  Our free betting tip for this weeks game is:
