The Arizona Cardinals will take on the Houston Texans for their Week 10 matchup on Sunday. Arizona (4-4) is doing better than anticipated this season, but they're still far behind both the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers in the NFC West. Houston (2-6) is far behind their AFC South rivals, and currently ride a six-game losing skid after opening the season with two consecutive wins.
The oddsmakers aren't confident in either team being heavily favored in this one. The Texans are the better team on paper, but they've failed to execute this season. That shows in the opening line, as Arizona opened as 3-point favorites, which is likely due to home-field advantage. The line has narrowed further throughout the week, with the Cardinals as low as 1-point favorites on some books.
In other words, the Texans would probably be slight favorites if the game was played at their stadium, as well. The over/under for the matchup is set at 41 points. That total has gone over in six of Houston's lat nine games and under in five of Arizona's last seven games.
