Betting on the Colts?  

The Colts have history on their side as they’ve won the all-time series 27-8. However, the spread has the Colts as the underdogs in this game, even if it could go both ways.

Indianapolis won the first matchup this season, but the Texans are now playing at home so that things could go differently this time around. Running back Marlon Mack’s announced hand injury is also a significant blow with big implications for the game’s results.

Mack rushed 14 times for 109 yards and a touchdown against the Jaguars. Much of the Colts’ offensive production and rushing goes through Mack, so they may have to lean more towards the air attack.

The Colts snapped a two-game losing streak with a 33-13 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars at Lucas Oil Stadium in Week 11. If you’re betting ATS, you should also know the Colts are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings between these two.

Betting on the Texans?  

Houston suffered a crushing loss at the hands of Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday. The Texans were defeated 41-7 in what marks Houston’s worst loss this season.

Houston’s problems with their offensive line led to Deshaun Watson being hit ten times and sacked seven. The Ravens’ defense also batted down six passes, which shows how the Texans were dominated in the game.

However, before losing to Baltimore, the Texans won four of their previous five games by an average margin of 13.5 points. These games included victories over the Chiefs (with Mahomes) and a better Raiders team.
