The Houston Texans’ playoff odds are pretty much shot. However, they are still mathematically alive, and a win can help salvage an otherwise disappointing season.
The New England Patriots stand in the way of the 2-7 Texans. At 4-5, the Patriots’ playoff hopes are very much alive, and riding a two-game winning streak, there is a sense things have turned around for New England.
According to BetMGM, the Patriots have the narrow advantage in this game with a -2 point spread, tied with the Green Bay Packers versus Indianapolis Colts (-2) for the second-slimmest of Week 11. The only team with slimmer odds is Washington at -1.5 against the Cincinnati Bengals, who are the road team going into FedEx Field.
