According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Texans are now 5-point home favorites versus the Colts after the game opened as a pick'em. As for the total, the number currently sits at 41 points.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Andrew Luck is expected to miss tonight’s game against the Texans. Luck is officially listed as questionable with a shoulder injury and will test the arm before the game, but the plan is for Matt Hasselbeck to start his second game of the season.

Even with Luck out, the Texans aren’t an intriguing draw. Ryan Mallett was horrible last week in a blowout loss to the Falcons and even with Arian Foster back, Houston’s offense looks punchless. Indianapolis has all sorts of issues and without Luck to mask those problems, the Colts have looked shaky. But the Texans shouldn’t be favored by 5 over any team right now.
