Early money 2/1 in favor of the Cardinals over the Texans
Fri, Oct 22nd 1:55pm EDT
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.
