49ers vs. Texans Preseason Pick
HOUSTON, TX (ATS Consultants) – In what should be a defensive struggle, the Texans will host the 49ers at 8:00PM ET as both teams kick off their 2015 NFL preseason schedule.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Texans are 2.5-point home favorites versus the 49ers after opening as 3-point favorites. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 35.5 points after opening at that same number.
The Texans could be a major contender if they had an elite quarterback. That's because J.J. Watt leads a very stingy defense. Brian Hoyer is not the answer and Ryan Mallett isn’t a great starting option either. The 49ers don't have a quarterback issue so expect Colin Kaepernick and most of the veterans to play little or none at all.
One thing both of these teams can do is play defense, so expect a low-scoring game tonight in Houston.
