The Houston Texans opened as +17 point road underdogs against the Arizona Cardinals, but the line has since moved off the key number.

Betting Impact:

The Cardinals have been bet down to -16.5 point favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. Arizona was a surprising underdog last week given their undefeated record, but oddsmakers likely thought the team was in a compromised position as head coach Kliff Kingsbury missed the game with COVID-19 illness. Despite Arizona's 5-1 ATS and 6-0 SU record, perhaps bettors are siding more with the Texans as Arizona is in a potential look-ahead spot, as they have a Thursday night showdown with the Packers next week.
