The Colts are coming off a come-from-behind 29-23 win over the Bears in Week 5, covering as a 4-point home favorite. That improved Indy's record to 2-3 on the year and 2-3 against the spread.

Luck has been sacked at least five times in each of his two road games this season.

Brock Osweiler has been an issue for the Texans this season, ranking at the bottom of the league in most categories. He's 27th in completion percentage (58.0), 29th in yards per attempt (6.0), tied for 28th in interceptions (7), and 25th in total QBR (50.1).

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. That said, only the Saints are allowing more points per game than Indy this season, making the Colts a perfect over bet. 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.
