The Saints are just 4-6 on the year and 4-5-1 against the spread, failing to win in all but one of their five road games this season. On the other side, the Texans are 5-5 straight up and 5-5 against the spread after beating the Bengals (Monday) and Jets (Sunday) last week. They're 3-2 against the spread at home this season.
The Saints have not allowed fewer than 300 yards passing in a single game defensively since Week 6. Brian Hoyer returns from a concussion suffered two weeks ago and he has a great matchup against one of the worst defenses in the league. While Houston's defense will have its work cut out for it trying to slow down Brandin Cooks, the Texans have been much better on that side of the ball in their three-game winning streak. The Saints are coming off their bye but they had too many problems to resolve in one week.
