JJ Watt and the Texans are not a safe NFL Betting Pick in Week 3.

Reviewing Houston Texans’ Top NFL Spreads of the Season

Written by on June 16, 2016

It is hard to sit and wait for the start of the 2016 NFL regular season, but some of us are already looking to kick off the 2016 wagering campaign in advance and make some NFL future bets. Thanks to the expert analysis and futures bet predictions you’re about to get on six 2016 Houston Texans regular season games, you’re going to have a great chance to cash in a whopping half-dozen times! Okay, with that said, let’s get started.

Reviewing Houston Texans’ Top NFL Spreads of the Season

Week 4

Tennessee Titans at Houston (-7)

Analysis: I know the Houston Texans got beaten like a bunch of rag dolls in their 30-6 home playoff loss against Kansas City to conclude their 2016 season, but prior to that defeat, Houston had won four of five at home while covering the NFL betting line in each SU victory. Not only that but the Texans have made a habit out of pounding the snot out of Tennessee in recent times, going 4-0 SU and ATS in their last four meetings against their AFC South division rivals and an insane 8-2 SU and 9-1 ATS in the L/10 meetings overall. Houston’s last four wins against Tennessee have all come by double digits and I like his one to play out the same way.The Pick: Houston 31 Tennessee 21

Week 6

Indianapolis Colts at Houston (-1.5)

Analysis After dropping six straight games against their division rivals, Houston managed to beat Indianapolis in their final regular season meeting a year ago while covering the spread as a 2-point home fave. For this matchup, I like the simple pick of backing the Texans at home. Maybe it’s me, but I can already see J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney pounding Andrew Luck into the turf en route to the narrow field goal win.The Pick: Houston 24 Indianapolis 21

Week 7

Houston at Denver Broncos (-6.5)

Analysis: The defending Super Bowl champion Broncos are going to pay the price in 2016 for not overpaying former signal-caller Brock Osweiler. With veteran Mark Sanchez likely playing his best brand of mediocre football for Denver this coming season, I say the storyline is perfectly set for Osweiler to get his revenge against John Elway and company. Besides, with these two AFC title hopefuls alternating SU and ATS wins and losses over the last five meetings and the Texans losing the last matchup back in 2013, the stage is set for the Texans to win and cash in!The Pick: Houston 21 Denver 17

Week 13

Houston at Green Bay Packers (-7)

Analysis: I know the Green Bay Packers are playing a home in this contest and that they’re looking to get back to being a legitimate Super Bowl title contender after an injury-riddled 2015 campaign, but I like Houston to cover the NFL betting line as a touchdown road dog because of their powerful pass rush and generally excellent defense.The Texans have won half of their last 10 road games outright while going 5-4-1 ATS over the span. With Green Bay going 1-3 SU and ATS over their last four home games, I like Houston to get the ATS cover in a narrow loss.The Pick: Green Bay 28 Houston 24

Week 12

San Diego Chargers at Houston (-4.5)

Analysis: I won’t write much about the Texans as far as this Week 12 contest is concerned, but I will say that Philip Rivers and the San Diego have been absolutely awful on the road recently. The Bolts lost seven of their eight road games in 2015, but they’ve also compiled a mind-boggling 6-4 ATS mark in their last half-dozen road contests. Of course, San Diego was a double-digit road dog in half of those contests so they should have covered if you ask me. This time around, the Bolts get handed a humbling road loss and they narrowly fail to cover the NFL betting line.The Pick: Houston 27 San Diego 21

Week 15

Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston (-4.5)

Analysis: I like what Jacksonville did in free agency and the NFL Draft this offseason and I expect them to improve a bit on their 2015 campaign, but they’re not the pick to win or cover the NFL betting line is this Week 15 AFC South divisional matchup. Houston is 8-2 SU in their last 10 games against Jacksonville and 5-1 SU in the last six meetings. While the Texans are just 3-3 ATS over the last six, they did manage to cover the NFL betting line as a 5.5-point home fave in the second of their two regular season meetings a year ago and I expect them to do the same in this late season matchup as they try to secure a spot in the AFC playoffs. The Texans win and cash in as my final NFL futures bet predictions pick.The Pick: Houston 30 Jacksonville 20
