Based on the betting splits at DraftKings Sportsbook, the favored Arizona Cardinals are getting slightly more betting attention in their matchup with the Houston Texans.

Betting Impact:

Per DraftKings, Arizona's -17.5 point spread has received 65% of the bets and 65% of the handle thus far. Oddsmakers likely figured that the undefeated Cardinals were going to get the majority of the betting attention against the one-win Texans no matter what they made the spread. With a 65/35 betting split, they likely have to be content with how the money has come in thus far. Many bettors tend to shy away from big spreads like this, but perhaps many of the 65% that backed Arizona saw Buffalo pound Houston 40-0 as similar -17.5 point favorites in Week 4.
