Why Houston Texans are a good bet at -3?

Before their bye, the Texans had racked up the 6 wins by switching things up when they had to. For example, Houston outscored Indianapolis 37-34. But, the Texans didn’t beat every team in a shootout during the 6-game winning streak.

They held Denver to only 17 points in a   19-17 win before the bye. Houston’s ability to employ different strategies to win games makes them difficult to beat. The Texans should employ the right strategy to win and cover on Sunday.

Why Washington Redskins are a good bet at +3?

Are the Redskins a safe for NFL Week 11?

Washington not only has a 6-3 record straight up, they also have a 6-3 record against the spread. The Redskins are 4-1 ATS in their last 5. Their only stumble was against the Atlanta Falcons. Washington has one of the top defenses in the NFL.

The Redskins have sacked opposing quarterbacks 25 times. They allow less than 20 point per. If Washington pressures Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson, they should have no trouble winning the game outright, much less covering as a home dog.

Texans at Redskins Final NFL Betting Analysis

The Texans winning streak is impressive, but Houston hasn’t faced a team with a surging defense like Washington’s. The Redskins held Tampa Bay, who passes the ball for more yards per game than any team in the NFL, to 3 points in a fantastic 16-3 victory in Week 10.

Washington’s been one of the surprise teams in the NFL this season. As of Week 11, they’ve only lost 3 games. The Redskins shouldn’t take a backward step on Sunday. In fact, they should manage to pressure Watson and hold the Texans to around 20 points or less. The team in D.C. wins straight up.
