Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans
The Texans will try to end the domination of the Colts when they receive them on Thursday night at the NRG Stadium. Indianapolis has won six of the last seven including five in a row. Houston remained in contention in both games last season and lost by a total of 12 points combined. The pass defense of the home squad will have to improve if they want to stop Andrew Luck as it accepted 243.1 yards per game last season. Former Stanford quarterback threw five touchdowns and two interceptions against the Texans in 2014. Although Indianapolis has won in recent years, this game is listed as Pick’em in the NFL Odds. The team led by Chuck Pagano is 5-0 SU and 4-0-1 ATS in the past five of the series.
Player to watch: It is difficult to pick a player when J.J. Watt is on the field. Last year against the Colts, he had four sacks and recovered a fumble and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown.
