Posted by: Charlie Smith
Monday night online football betting makes its return in Week 12 with an AFC matchup that is, quite honestly, not that intriguing. The Baltimore Ravens will be hosting the Houston Texans this Monday and with the kind of season that both teams are having in mind, it’s safe to say that there’s a good chance of this game turning into a snooze fest. The Texans enter this matchup with a losing record while the Ravens are struggling to remain at .500. Let’s take a look at what kind of turnout the NFL football betting lines are predicting for this upcoming Monday night match.

The Houston Texans march into this Week 12 pairing sporting a 4-6 record that ranks them 3rd in the AFC South. The South is currently lead by the 7-3 Jacksonville Jaguars, something no football betting site would’ve predicted before the season kicked off. Below the impressionable Jaguars are the 6-4 Tennessee Titans who have been finding modest success all season long. Early in the season, the Texans emerged as an unquestionable contender in the AFC South. However, ever since their rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson went down with an ACL tear, the Texans haven’t been able to win too many games. Nonetheless, Houston did pull out a 31-21 win over the Arizona Cardinals that snapped the franchise’s 3 game losing streak. Despite coming off an inspiring win, the proposition bets football odds are still pegging the Houston as massive underdogs against the struggling Baltimore Ravens. Houston will be looking to prove said odds wrong tis upcoming Monday night. But with a struggling offense and a crippled defense, there’s not much hope for the 4-6 Texans.
The Ravens fly into this Week 12 match flashing a 5-5 record that ranks them 2nd in the AFC North. Baltimore has had an up and down season, and at the moment the Ravens have endured too many losses to try and usurp the 8-2 Pittsburgh Steelers for the lead in the AFC North. Baltimore could still earn a ticket to the playoffs via a Wild Card berth, but the Ravens might be better off making sure that the 4-6 Cincinnati Bengals don’t pass them in the division. Baltimore is coming off a 23-0 shutout win over the Packers that marked the franchise’s 2nd W in their last 4 games.
The Ravens will once again be looking to assert their defensive dominance come Monday. Since the Texans will be competing without Watson, Baltimore stands a very good chance of bullying Houston in Week 12. The Ravens rank 3rd in the NFL in terms of points allowed per game. Furthermore, their defense ranks 6th in total yards, 2nd against the pass and 26th against the run. While Houston does have the 6th best rushing attack in the NFL, don’t expect the Texans to run their way to victory this online football betting Monday night.
