HOUSTON TEXANS @ INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

AFC South tilt as two 1-4 teams battle for control of 2nd position in the division. Will Davis Mills get his first NFL win, or can Carson Wentz steer this Colts playoff ship back on course?

Houston somehow lost their 4th straight game last week as they fell to the New England Patriots in a game in which they appeared in full control. Ten unanswered 4th quarter points from New England gave the Patriots the win, and Houston will have to start playing consistent football through all four quarters if they’re going to pick up their second win of the year. 

Indy was also guilty of losing a game they seemed to have control of in Week 5 as they began the 4th quarter with a 22-9 lead, yet managed to lose the game in OT to Baltimore. Their inability to stop anyone in the passing game was once again at the fore as Lamar Jackson threw for over 400 yards and zero interceptions. Hollywood Brown and Mark Andrews both had well over 100 yards receiving and a couple of scores on MNF, and whilst the Texans don’t possess a free-scoring offense, they could well have success against this Colts defense. Mo Alie-Cox has become the Colts receiving option at the TE position, and he could be in line for some TD opportunity against a Texans defense, which has given up 5 scores to the TE position already this season. Alie-Cox had two TD receptions against Miami in Week 4 and had his first 50 receiving yards game on MNF so he’s in good form recently as well. 

Spread: Texans +10.0

Total Match Points line: U/O 43.5

Game Prediction: Colts 30-27 Texans

Best Bet: Mo Alie-Cox anytime TD @ 9/2 with William Hill. [0.5]
