Bucs vs. Texans Free Pick
Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will look to pick up their second victory in as many weeks when they visit the Houston Texans today at 1:00PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Texans are 7-point home favorites versus the Buccaneers while the total for today's game is currently sitting at 40.5 points.
Houston shouldn't be favored by a touchdown against anyone - not even a Tampa Bay team that was destroyed at home by the Titans in Week 1. Ryan Mallett has a strong arm that gets him out of trouble at times, but it also creates trouble for him as well. With Arian Foster still sidelined, the Texans' offense is directionless and thus, why part with the seven points?
The Texans are 1-6 against the spread in their last seven games in Week 3 and 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games. They certainly have the defense to shut down Winston and Co., but turnovers and sloppy play from the Houston offense will keep this game tight.
