Total: O 47.5 (-110), U 47.5 (-110) 


Arizona Cardinals

NFL Team Arizona CardinalsThe Cardinals, with a recent narrow victory over Atlanta, improved to a 2-8 record, hoping to turn around a challenging season. Kyler Murray, who has thrown for 249 yards this year, is looking to shake off rust and inconsistency. James Conner leads the Cardinals’ rushing efforts, complemented by the receiving skills of Marquise Brown and Michael Wilson. Despite their defensive efforts led by Kyzir White and Dennis Gardeck, the Cardinals have a streak of road losses they’re desperate to break, especially against teams with winning records.


Houston Texans 

NFL Team Houston TexansThe Texans, meanwhile, are building momentum after a thrilling win against Cincinnati, standing at 5-4. Quarterback C.J. Stroud has been instrumental in their offense with significant passing yards and a strong touchdown-to-interception ratio. The ground game is shared between Devin Singletary and Dameon Pierce, adding depth to their attack. Nico Collins and Tank Dell are standout receivers, with solid contributions from Noah Brown and Dalton Schultz. Defensively, Blake Cashman and Henry To’o To’o have been tackling leaders, with Jonathan Greenard making an impact with sacks. However, the Texans have had their struggles as home favorites following a win.



Looking ahead, the prediction is leaning toward the Texans to continue their surprising run. Despite Kyler Murray’s return and Arizona’s win in their home environment, their form has been less than convincing, particularly on the road. There is no way you can consider them a dangerous team. The Texans, on the other hand, have shown they can exceed expectations and, with the home-field advantage, may be the safer bet for those looking to capitalize on this weekend’s NFL action. Houston’s consistent performance makes them the pick in this clash, as they aim to solidify their position as one of the season’s unexpected contenders.
