NFL Week 5 Monday Night Football sees the New York Jets playing hosts to the undefeated Houston Texans. The current NFL Spread sees the majority of sportsbooks offering the Jets +9.5 Texans -9.5 with some moving the line out to +/-10. The over under total of O/U 40.5 has remained steady since the opening. The current moneyline odds pricing sees Houston trading between -540 ($1.19) up to -450 ($1.22) and if you fancy the Jets can stop Houston from making it 5 in a row then you can get odds as high as +385 ($4.85).

Where is the money going? Using stats from a reputable offshore sportsbook we see that in the point spread market 56% of wagers placed have been on Houston to cover. In the moneyline odds department 53% of wagers have been on the Jets at their juicy odds and in the over under totals betting 54% of the wagers placed have been on the over bet. Looking at how much action is divided between these 3 major betting options for the Jets v Texans match we can see that the players love the NFL point spread bet, 61% of wagers are on the spread, 20% on the moneyline and 19% of wagers have been placed on the total.

In Prop betting, some lopsided action for the prop B. Cushing solo+assisted tackles Over or Under 7.5 with 92% of the wagers placed backing the Over 7.5 at -110 ($1.91).

Our figures here at don't show enough value either way to warrant a play in this game. We will move on to week 6 opportunities.
