HOUSTON TEXANS @ ARIZONA CARDINALS

The undefeated Cardinals are at home in Week 7, and they welcome the winless since Week 1 Texans to the desert. Will Arizona move to 7-0 as expected, or will Houston pull off the upset of the year with a win in Glendale? 

The Texans are a bad football team. They were beaten easily by the Colts last week and now face the hottest team in football, who have two prominent ex-Texans dominating on both sides of the ball. I’ll be surprised if the Texans score double-digit points, something they’ve failed to do in half of their games this year. 

DeAndre Hopkins will be looking forward to this. After being traded from the Texans to the Cardinals, ‘Nuk’ Hopkins gets his first shot at punishing his former employers and with six TD receptions already this season, who’s betting against him making it seven here? J.J. Watt is the former Texan on the defensive side of the ball for and whilst he’s had a great start to life as a Cardinal, we’re focusing our attention on a younger member of the defense. Isaiah Simmons has shown the type of form that had many calling him a “Unicorn” prospect when he was at Clemson. The versatile defensive star has made six or more combined tackles & assists in all but one game this season and should once again be active against an uninspiring and uncreative Texans offense. 

Spread: Cardinals -19.5

Total Match Points line: U/O 47.5

Game Prediction: Cardinals 35-7 Texans 

Best Bet: DeAndre Hopkins to score a Touchdown and Isaiah Simmons over 5.5 Tackles & Assists @ 11/4 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
