LAS VEGAS -- The idle San Francisco 49ers stayed atop the Vegas NFL Bettors' Poll, as there wasn't much movement at the top.

That tends to happen when most of the favorites win in a given week, as we saw in Week 9, with faves going 10-4 against the spread. The Houston Texans were 11-point favorites over the Buffalo Bills and won 21-9, but stayed the same in the combined power ratings of Teddy "Covers" Sevransky of sportsmemo.com, Sal Selvaggio of madduxsports.com and yours truly, and remain tied with the idle New England Patriots for the No. 2 spot in our poll.
