Houston Texans vs Indianapolis Colts: Same-Game Parlay Picks
The Houston Texans have elected to roll with Davis Mills one last time before starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor is good to go. Mills performed last week with over 300 yards passing against the Patriots and he’ll look to provide the same amount of production against the Colts secondary that has been absolutely awful.
The Colts secondary has been so bad that when the Ravens were down 16 points in the fourth quarter last week, Lamar Jackson had an absolute field day. He threw the Ravens right back into the game, ultimately winning the game and defeating the Colts because the secondary couldn’t defend for the life of them.
Here’s the best Same-Game Parlay between the Texans and Colts.
Texans vs Colts Same-Game Parlay Picks
Mark Ingram Under 33.5 Rushing Yards (-114)
The Colts do one good thing on defense, and that’s stopping the run. Last week, the Ravens couldn’t even achieve 100 yards rushing, while attempting to break the record for the most consecutive games with 100 rushing yards.
On the other hand, the Colts have been awful in pass coverage. Therefore, as a 10-point spread, this is going to be another Davis Mills passing game, where he could easily reach 300 yards for the second straight week.
Don’t expect Ingram to break out any big rushes against the Colts and certainly don’t expect Ingram to get a whole lot of carries. Before the Patriots game, he had just six carries in each of his previous two games. He’ll likely get between that six to 16 mark but either way, one or two-yard gains won’t get the job done.
Davis Mills Over 212.5 Yards Passing (-114)
The Texans are going to feel more comfortable passing the ball with Mills after his performance last week. I’m not saying he’s going to go off for another dominant performance. He might even have a couple interceptions. But what I am saying is that Mills to reach 213 passing yards against this Colts secondary is very doable.
Last week, Lamar Jackson and the Ravens literally abandoned the run and passed their way back into the game against the Colts on Monday Night Football. Jackson went 37-for-43 with a QBR of 71.6 and a QB Rating of 140.5. He only threw six incomplete passes the entire game, and not all of these were easy throws.
Mills has a chance to get 300 yards again. So let’s take the over at 212.5.
Over 43.5 (-110)
The Colts offense might return TY Hilton as another weapon on a lethal offense that has underachieved this season. The Colts are scoring just 21.6 points per game but have done much better than the box score shows.
Carson Wentz threw for 400 yards himself against the Ravens and can do the same against the Houston Texans that can’t do much right on defense either.
Meanwhile, if the Texans abandon the run early and stick to passing, Mills should have another good day. Any team can move the ball down the field against the Colts secondary right now and while the Colts should end up winning this game, there’s reason to believe that the Texans can contribute 21 points to this over.
