NFL Picks & Predictions: Sunday Night Football Totals for Week 13
The Houston Texans are tied with the Kansas City Chiefs.
They also have a 1 game lead in the branch over the Indianapolis Colts and also Tennessee Titans. In terms of the New England Patriots, a loss here would open the doorway for the Baltimore Ravens to have home field during the AFC playoffs. This is a must-win match for the two teams.
Though the Texans do pose a danger, the fact of the matter is that they haven’t been consistent. As vulnerable as New England appeared within their loss of the year into the Ravens, the Texans were utterly awful. I guess some of those same problems will return to haunt them.
This line opened at New England -4 using some 3.5’s available now. The Entire started at 44 and action on the over has seen it go move up to 46. The industry move from 4 to 3.5 actually makes sense because the fact isthat the Patriots haven’t faced enough excellent opposition to be putting 4 points onto the road against a group that seems destined to the playoffs.
I lean into the above because I really feel like that Texans could put up things with this Patriots defense. While New England’s defense looked impressive against the Eagles and Cowboys, we’re gradually coming to realize that each of the teams in the NFC East are not that great. I believe Deshaun Watson can make things happen with his arm. On the opposite side of the globe, we all know that points will be surrendered by Houston’s defense. Even though the Pats have not looked anywhere near their offensively, they nevertheless have to have it done here. I like both teams to enter the 20’s that is the reason why I lean into the Over 46.
My pick: Over 46 (-105) at 5Dimes
