Texans at Ravens- Live Odds, Best Bets, and Player Props

It seems that all NFL fans have the same questions these days: Is CJ Stroud really a rookie? Can the Texans pull off an upset against the Ravens? Find out here!

If you need help betting Texans at Ravens, we've got all you need in this betting preview. We'll dive into the live odds, best bets, and the top player props on the board. Best of luck with all of your bets this weekend!

Houston Texans @ Baltimore Ravens

The Texans absolutely obliterated the Cleveland Browns in last week’s wildcard game 45-14. CJ Stroud looked anything but a rookie as he threw for 274yds and 3 touchdowns without a pick. On the other side of the ball, the Texans defense was just as impressive.

They held the Browns to just 56 yards on the ground and picked up Flacco twice and returned both interceptions for touchdowns. They will look to carry all this momentum over to their matchup with the #1 seeded Ravens.

Baltimore had their 6-game win streak snapped in their season finale when they lost 17-10 to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Granted, it was a game that featured mainly backups as it was not going to affect the seeding for the Ravens.

That said, most of the Ravens have now had 3 weeks off as they sat the last game and were on a bye in the wildcard round. One thing to note during their break, tight end Mark Andrews was brought off the IR and will be active for this meeting with the Texans. As one of Jackson’s favorite targets, he will only boost an already potent offense.

Best Bet: Texans +9.5

The Texans look like one of the hottest teams remaining in the playoffs while the Ravens are basically coming off 2 bye weeks. We believe some rust will need to be knocked off for the Ravens in this one, which will allow the Texans to hang around long enough to cover the 9.5-point spread.

There will also be a revenge factor as these 2 met in the season opener. In that game, the Ravens won 25-9 in a game that featured the same point spread. However, CJ Stroud was making his 1st ever start and this Texans team is completely different now.
