The Houston Texans and Miami Dolphins meet up in Week 12, with both teams heading in totally opposite directions as we move closer to 2023. The Texans are 13.5-point underdogs on the road, priced at +575 on the moneyline at DraftKings Sportsbook. The Dolphins sit as clear favorites at -800, with the point total set at 46.5.

The Texans (1-8-1) haven’t won a game since Week 5, and are about to match up with one of the strongest offenses in football in Week 12. With discussions of a potential quarterback change already in play, Davis Mills didn’t help his case much more against the Washington Commanders in Week 11. Mills turned in another pedestrian stat line, completing 19-of-33 passes for 169 yards and two interceptions. Kyle Allen would be the next signal-caller under center in Houston.

The Dolphins should win this one with ease, but the question is: Can they cover the large spread? Tua Tagovailoa has been lethal against quality defenses this season with dangerous deep threats Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle running routes all over the field, and Miami has put up at least 35 total points in its last two appearances. If the defense can limit the struggling Texans offense in Week 12, all signs point to at least a two-TD deficit for most of the game.
