Texans vs. Colts Total Pick

Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts NFL Total Predictions 12/28/17

Will points be hard to come by when two struggling team in the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts meet up on Sunday at 1PM ET?

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Indianapolis is favored at home in this game, as the Colts are getting odds of -4 points against the Texans. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 41 points. Houston has won three of their last four meetings with the Colts and the two have hit the under in three of their last four encounters. The public betting in this game has 69 percent of the wagers going on the Colts at home. Sunday’s game takes place from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana and will air live on CBS.

Houston is on a five-game losing streak right now and injuries have ruined the Texans’ season. Houston is 8-7 with the under, hitting it in four of their last five games. The Texans have struggled without Deshaun Watson at QB. On the season they average 21.7 points and 350.9 yards per game, but have been held to 16 points or less in five straight. T.J. Yates has thrown for 386 yards on 33 of 73 passing with four touchdowns and two interceptions. DeAndre Hopkins is still a force, catching 96 passes for 1,378 yards and 13 touchdowns while Lamar Miller has run for 851 yards and three scores. Defensively, Houston is giving up 27.6 points and 365.7 yards per game. Jadeveon Clowney is leading the unit with nine sacks and 52 tackles.

Indy has dropped six straight games coming into Sunday to sit at 3-12 on the season. The Colts are 9-6 with the under this year, hitting it in seven straight contests. The Colts are averaging just 16.1 points and 308.5 yards per game this season on offense. Jacoby Brissett has thrown for 2,984 yards and 12 touchdowns with seven interceptions while Frank Gore has run for 861 yards and three scores. T.Y. Hilton is the leading receiver with 54 catches for 952 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, the colts are giving up 26.1 points and 388.5 yards per game. Their run defense allows 122.8 yards per contest.

Bet on Texans vs. Colts

This game features two teams with nothing to gain with a victory and both coaches could be on the hot seat come Monday. Both offenses have struggled all season and Houston may not be able to move the ball on anyone. Indy seems to have the better offense, but the Texans have the better defense. I think this will be an ugly football game. I feel good about the under.
