 Starting with the NY Jets vs. Houston Texans, we will take a look at the spread and betting odds at two of the most popular online sportsbooks. Will the absence of Brett Favre take the edge out of the rebuilt Jets or will Mark Sanchez be able to deliver against the Texans this weekend? According to the online sports betting website Bookmaker, the Jets have no chance - the odds makers have listed the Texans as big -230 favorite to win the home game, while the Jets are underdog with odds +190. The Jets vs. Texans point spread is currently at -4.5 points chalk Houston and the total for the game is set by the bookmakers at 44 points. The story is exactly the same at another top online sportsbook, Bodog Sports, where the Texans will also attempt to cover -4.5 spread. For the NY Jets defensive end Shaun Ellis and linebacker Calvin Pace are out, but running back Shonn Greene and wide receiver Wallace Wright both did a full practice on Thursday and are expected to participate in the Jets vs. Texans match-up. At Houston wide receiver Kevin Walter missed practice, but QB Matt Schaub did a full one on Thursday after an ankle scare.

 Moving to the spread and odds on the next NFL game, the Dallas Cowboys vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, where the odds makers are giving even more lean on the 'Boys. The last time the two teams met in October of 08, the Cowboys took a 13-9 victory, but the sportsbooks are even more confident in the Cowboys this time around - the guys at Bookmaker have set the odds on the Cowboys to win that game at -275, while the Buccaneers are a big Week 1 underdog with odds +235 to win their opener at home in Tampa Bay. The Dallas Cowboys vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers point spread is currently favoring the Cowboys at -6, while the total expected in the game is at low 39 points. For Dallas, linebackers Curtis Johnson and Jason Williams both missed Thursday practice still nursing injuries. At Tampa Bay the list of players absent from Thursday practice include tight end John Gilmore, linebacker Adam Hayward and defensive end Kyle Moore, while wide receivers Antonio Bryant and Michael Clayton did a limited one.
