Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The New England Patriots (4-5) ride a two-game winning streak into NRG Stadium to face the underachieving Houston Texans (2-7). The annoyingly resilient Patriots are coming off an impressive 23-17 victory over the Ravens, and look to reach .500 here. New England only being favored by two points in Houston can be considered a gift, since this will be a bloody massacre. The NFL betting gods have given us a freebie, so take it. The Patriots are 11-3 straight up over their last 14 games which followed consecutive wins. New England is also 6-1 ATS in its previous seven road contests against teams with losing records. Patriots 38, Texans 17
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
Cam Newton and the New England Patriots revived after scoring 23 points against the Baltimore Ravens, one of the best defenses in the league. Newton threw a touchdown pass for the first time since Week 3 and Damien Harris looked like the No. 1 RB they have been looking for. WR Jakobi Meyers has become the Pats’ best receiver since Julian Edelman got injured.
The Patriots average 21 points per game and the total has gone over in five of New England’s last six games on the road.
DeShaun Watson and the Houston Texans scored just seven points in Week 10 against the Browns. Not having RB David Johnson affected their running game. With Will Fuller, Randal Cobb and Brandin Cooks as his main targets, the Texans should stick to throwing the ball.
The Texans average 22.2 points per game and the total has gone under in four of Houston’s last five games at home.
Go under once again in a close one.
