NFL FREE PICK: Take Houston. The Broncos are coming off a deflating loss to the Falcons on Monday night and now they have to game plan for a tough Houston defense on a short week. Peyton Manning looked like a quarterback who doesn’t have the same velocity he had just a few years ago and while Atlanta’s defense was excellent on Monday, Wade Phillips’ system is a challenge all to itself. According to latest NFL betting trends, the Texans are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven road games, 4-1 ATS in their last five games in September and are 12-3-2 ATS in their last 17 games versus the AFC. Look for the Broncos to struggle again offensively and for the Texans to stay undefeated.
