Why are the Texans a good bet at +1.5?

Houston’s been close in all 3 of their games this season. The Texans lost 20-27 to New England in Week 1, 17-20 to Tennessee in Week 2, and 22-27 to the New York Giants in Week 3. Could this be the game where the Texans finally secure a victory? It might because Indianapolis appears to be the worst team the Texans have faced this season. The Colts’ defense should have trouble stopping Houston’s excellent rushing attack. If the Texans’ defense doesn’t give up big mistakes, Houston should win this.

Why are the Colts a good bet at -1.5?

Are the Colts a safe bet in NFL Week 4? Since a 23-34 loss to Cincinnati in Week 1, Indy has played well enough to go 2-0 against the spread in their last couple of games. The Colts pulled off the upset over Washington in Washington in Week 2. They lost by only 4, 16-20, to Philadelphia in Week 3. Coming home against a team like Houston should bolster the Colts because they had to play their last two games on the road against better opponents. Indianapolis looks solid to use their homefield advantage and beat Houston on Sunday.

Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts Final Analysis

The spread has already gone from Colts -3 to Colts -1.5. Although it’s taken a ton of money for the spread to dive 50%, it’s hard to see if the money is right. Indianapolis might just be the better team in this matchup because Houston has failed to close the door on all 3 of its opponents. Losing to the New York Giants in Week 3 says a lot. The Giants’ defense shouldn’t be good enough to hold Houston to only 22 points. The problem the Texans have appears to be from the sidelines where their coaches aren’t calling the right plays in the right situations. The Colts have a quarterback, Andrew Luck, that can bail them out if things get tough while Houston’s quarterback, Deshaun Watson, doesn’t have the flash he displayed last season. Indy’s the play. NFL Football Week 4 Pick: Colts -1.5
