The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will travel to Houston, Texas to face the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium on Sunday afternoon in week 9 of the NFL season with the game airing at 1:00 PM ET regionally on CBS.
Tampa Bay enters this game with a record of 3-4 following an 18-24 loss on the road against the Buffalo Bills while covering the 10-point spread as a road underdog in week 8 of the NFL season. The Buccaneers scored 18 points while compiling a total of 302 yards offensively which included 237 passing yards and 78 rushing yards while allowing 24 points and 427 total yards defensively which included 324 passing yards and 115 rushing yards.

Rachaad White led the team in rushing with nine carries for 39 yards while also leading the team in receiving, catching all seven targets for 70 yards.
The Houston Texans enter this game with a record of 3-4 following a 13-15 loss on the road against the Carolina Panthers while failing to cover the 3.5-point spread as a road favorite in week 8 of the NFL season. Houston scored 13 points while compiling a total of 229 yards offensively which included 140 passing yards and 110 rushing yards while allowing 15 points and 224 total yards defensively which included 235 passing yards and 44 rushing yards.

Dameon Pierce led the team in rushing with 12 carries for 46 yards. Noah Brown led the team in receiving, catching three of five targets for 57 yards.
BookMaker has the Houston Texans listed as 3-point favorites at home against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday afternoon in week 9 of the NFL season. Houston has won four of the five games all-time including the previous four meetings in a row while going 3-1-1 ATS all-time and 2-0-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 4-3 ATS overall, 3-0 ATS on the road, and 3-2 ATS as an underdog while the Houston Texans are 4-3 ATS overall, 2-1 ATS at home, and 0-2 ATS as a favorite on the year.
Both teams enter this game with a record of 3-4 and the winner will be at .500 this season. Houston has dominated this series winning four of the five games all-time including the previous four games and has been the better team at covering the spread in the series going 3-1-1 ATS all-time and 2-0-1 ATS in the last three contests. I look for the Texans to make it five wins in a row against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as well as improving to 4-1-1 ATS in the series when they host the Buccaneers on Sunday afternoon in week 9 of the NFL season which is why I am laying the points with the Houston Texans in this matchup.
