NFL Week 1 Free Pick: Take Houston. According to latest NFL trends, the Texans are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games in September, 20-5-2 against the number in their last 27 games on grass, and 15-6-2 ATS in their last 23 games versus the AFC. On the other side, the Chargers are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games in Week 1, 1-4 against the number in their last five games on grass, and 0-4 ATS in their last four home games.

The Chargers will have plenty of issues trying to slow down J.J. Watt and that fierce Houston defense. It should lead to more turnovers by quarterback Philip Rivers, who doesn't have enough weapons to compete on a weekly basis. Look for Houston to eventually wear down San Diego's defense and win big.
