NFL Odds: Ravens, Texans in AFC North-South Battle

by: Staff Writer - posted on: 12-Nov-2019

Division leaders will clash this Sunday when the Baltimore Ravens host the Houston Texans, kicking off at 1 PM ET on CBS. Baltimore leads the AFC North at 7-2 SU and 4-5 ATS, while the Texans are tops in the AFC South at 6-3 SU and 5-4 ATS. The Ravens are 4.5-point favorites at press time with a total of 50; Sunday's forecast calls for partly cloudy skies over M&T Bank Stadium with temperatures in the mid-40s.

Offense and special teams have gotten both these clubs to the top of their respective divisions. Their defense hasn't been quite as good, especially on Baltimore's end now that Terrell Suggs plays for Arizona. But the Texans have also lost their former Defensive Player of the Year, JJ Watt, who went on injured reserve after tearing a chest muscle in Week 8.

Houston will have the rest advantage in this matchup after taking the bye in Week 10, and they hope to have LT Laremy Tunsil (shoulder) back in the fold after he sat out their 26-3 victory over Jacksonville (PK) in London. WR Will Fuller (hamstring) may also make his return against Baltimore after returning to the practice field on Monday.
