OUR PICK: The Colts have scored a touchdown on 11 of their 13 red zone trips this season (*84.6), which is the best red zone efficiency in the NFL.

The over is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams in Houston and is 5-1 in the Colts' last six games overall. The over is also 4-1 in Indy's last five road games, is 4-1 in the Colts' last five games versus AFC South opponents and is 23-8 in the Texans' last 31 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
