Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts Preview & Picks

Houston are tipped to cover as they win this massive AFC South clash.

The return of CJ Stroud is huge for the Texans offense, while the defense can keep Gardner Minshew in check.

  • Houston Texans are 7-2-0 ATS in their 9 wins
  • Houston Texans are 3-1-0 ATS in their last 4 division games
  • 8 of Houston’s last 9 games have produced over 35.0 total points
  • The Over has hit in 7 of Indianapolis’ last 10 games

Head To Head

  • Indianapolis Colts lead the all-time series 33-10-1
  • Indianapolis Colts won 31-20 when the two teams last met on September 17

Houston Texans Form

Houston go into this game having won three of the last six to stay in the race to win the AFC South.

The Texans dropped their first two games of the season, but they steadied the ship by winning three of their next five games.

They then put themselves right in the mix to win the division with a three-game win streak in November that saw them beat Tampa Bay 39-37 and Arizona 21-16 either side of a 30-27 win in Cincinnati.

Houston have struggled for consistency since then though, with an injury to CJ Stroud playing a major role.

The Texans did win 26-3 against Tennessee last weekend though, taking them to 9-7 heading into their regular season finale.

Indianapolis Colts Form

Indianapolis have won six of their last eight games to improve to 9-7 and give themselves a shot at winning the AFC South.

The Colts made a solid start by winning three of their first five games, but their form dipped with a three-game losing skid in October.

They rebounded in November though, sparking a four-game win streak with a 27-13 win in Carolina.

Indianapolis then beat New England 10-6 in New England, before returning to the US to down Tampa Bay 27-20 and Tennessee 31-28 in overtime.

The Colts failed to keep that running, but last weekend’s 23-20 win over Las Vegas has them on the brink of a division title.

Verdict

Having CJ Stroud back is a massive boost for Houston, and we are backing the rookie QB to lead his team to a big road win.
