The Denver Broncos are a slight home underdog when they take on the Houston Texans Sunday.

After falling to the Atlanta Falcons 27-21 on Monday night, the Denver Broncos are currently a 1-1/2 point home underdog to the Houston Texans.

The line opened up with the Broncos as a one point favorite over the Texans, but the early money has drifted over to Houston, and the sportsbooks have Houston anywhere from a pick 'em to a 1-1/2 point favorite over the Broncos. Both teams have high powered offenses, but the Texans defense has been stellar, giving up just 273 yards and 8.5 points a game this year.

The total for the Broncos and Texans opened at 46-1/2 and hasn't moved much, with the sportsbooks either holding or dropping slightly to 46. Both teams are averaging over 26 points a game this year, and even with the Texans' defense, most are expecting a shoot out in the Mile High City.
