NFL Week 13 Picks: Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans Predictions
- The Texans have only covered the spread 4 times this season, failing to cover 7 times
Sunday sees this divisonal clash as the Colts travel to Houston to face the Texans. The Colts need to bounce back, having lost 45-26 to the Titans, which has damaged their chances of winning the AFC South.
The Colts have been impressive this season and I'm backing them to bounce back and beat the Texans here. The Texans have some good news in that David Johnson is returning from his concussion but their lack of depth at wide reciever is going to cause them serious issues here.
Will Fuller is suspended for PEDs, Randall Cobb is on IR and Kenny Stills was released, that leaves Keke Coutee as the second wideout behind Brandin Cooks. Deshaun Watson is a star but he'll find it tough to pick apart this elite Colts defense, even without his missing talent.
Indianapolis are 3.5 point favorites and they should be able to cover here, the Texans are 30th in the league in terms of TDs allowed to WRs, something that doesn't bode well for them here. This should be an easy cover and I can't understand the line whatsoever.
