Moneyline: Packers -190 (4-1) | Texans +165 (1-5)
Green Bay collapsed after going up 10-0 on Tampa Bay after its first two drives against Tampa Bay. The Packers never scored again in their embarrassing 38-10 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday.
Future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers was held to 160 passing yards while throwing two interceptions and no touchdowns.
Houston looked a lot better than they have in their second game under interim head coach Romeo Crennel even if they did suffer a crushing 42-36 overtime loss against AFC South division rival Tennessee in Week 6. The Texans went for what would have likely been a game-clinching, two-point conversion try, but Houston failed to convert and failed to build on their 30-14 Week 5 win over Jacksonville.
“I would do it again because I think it was a good choice,” Crennel said on a Zoom conference call. “You’re on the road against a division opponent who’s undefeated, and if you can get a two-point conversion, you shut the door on them and win the game.
Watson passed for 335 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions, but the Texans gave up four TD passes to Ryan Tannehill and 212 rushing yards and two scores to league rushing leader Derrick Henry.
Houston has gone 1-6 SU in its last seven games and 2-4 SU in its last six home games. Green Bay is 10-2 SU in its last 12 games and 5-2 SU in its last seven road games. Still, I feel an upset brewing in this Week 7 affair.
Pick: Texans to win
Point Spread: Packers -3½ (4-1) | Texans +3½ (1-5)
Green Bay has gone 5-0 ATS in its last 5 games following a straight-up loss and 10-1 ATS in its last 11 games following an ATS loss. While Houston is just 4-9 ATS in its last 13 home games and 0-4 ATS in its last four games against a team with a winning record, the Texans have also gone 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 games following an ATS loss. After watching last week’s results for both of these teams, I like Houston to expose a Packers defense that is ranked in the middle of the pack across the board.

Over/Under 57 points: Packers (3-2) | Texans (4-2)
Green Bay is ranked third in scoring (32.4 ppg) and 20th in points allowed (27.8 ppg). Houston ranks third in passing, but just 21st in scoring (24.3 ppg) and an uninspiring 26th in points allowed (30.3 ppg).
The Over is 10-2 in Green Bay’s last 12 road games against a team with a losing home record and 5-2 in the Packers’ last 7 games overall. The Over is also 5-1 in Houston’s last 6 games as an underdog and 5-2 in the Texans’ last 7 games overall. I’m expecting to see an offensive explosion in this interconference clash.
Pick: Over 57 points

Packers at Texans Props Predictions
This Week 7 matchup looks like an affair that just won’t see a whole lot of defense being played. Rodgers and Watson are elite and should have their way against each team’s mediocre defense. Let’s take a look at the value-packed NFL props odds surrounding this contest.
Total TDs in the Game Over/Under 6½
There have been at least seven touchdowns scored in three of Green Bay’s five games with the Packers’ other two contests producing an identical six touchdowns. Four of Houston’s six games this season have produced at least six touchdowns.
A Team To Score Three Unanswered Times
The way the Texans and Packers are giving up points, I don’t see either team scoring three straight times. While the Packers allowed Tampa Bay to pull off the feat last weekend, that’s not happening again against a Houston defense that has been quite generous. With the Packers ranking 31st in takeaways, the Texans will surely put their fair share of points on the board.
