NFL FREE PICK: Take Houston. According to latest NFL trends, the Texans are 10-4-2 against the spread in their last 16 games after accumulating more than 150 yards rushing in their previous game. The Niners, meanwhile, are 5-13-2 against the number in their last 20 games following a straight up win of more than 14 points. Had Houston hung on to beat Seattle last week it's highly doubtful that this line would be more than 4 points. Instead, the Texans blew the game in the fourth quarter and now they're nearly a touchdown underdog versus a Niners team that lost two weeks ago to Indianapolis at home? Houston is a value - take the dog.
