Texans, Colts Under 47½

With a playoff spot on the line, I think we see these two offenses get off to a slow start. Given the magnitude of this game, look for the under to hit at the sportsbook.

Spread Pick: Texans -1½

The Colts won in these two teams’ last matchup 31-20 back on September 17. Yet, Houston looks to be playing like a different team as the postseason nears.

I trust Stroud to do enough to punch the Texans’ ticket back to the postseason. Gardner Minshew mania ends, at last, for this season.


Moneyline Pick: Texans Top Colts (-124)

This could be a coin-flip game, but the Texans have looked like the more consistent team this season. Sure, the Texans are starting a rookie quarterback in Stroud, but you would never know it with how calm the team’s QB1 is playing. The star quarterback sounds confident heading into Indy.

“We’re really just going to go out there with confidence,” Stroud explained, per Pro Football Talk. “That was the main thing we talked about today, being relentless in every single thing that we do, and what’s the worst that could happen?”

“Playing hard and playing fast. So, we don’t doubt ourselves. We really think we can win this game, and that’s the plan, so [we have to] go out there and just execute.”

Best Prop Bet: C.J. Stroud Over 1½ Touchdown Passes (-106)

Stroud has experience playing in these win-or-go-home moments dating back to his college career at Ohio State. Bet online Stroud to go over his touchdown passes prop.
