Indianapolis Colts vs Houston Texans Predictions & Picks 

Indianapolis Colts vs Houston Texans Predictions

Key Stat: Houston Texans performed on very high level during the preseason 

Tip Reasoning

  • Hosts defeated 49ers, Rams and Saints in the last three weeks 
  • Both sides have a lot of new pieces which need time to adjust 
  • Can Matt Ryan improve on his questionable form? 

One of Sunday early afternoon games is happening at NRG Stadium where Houston Texans are hoping for a successful start of the new campaign against Indianapolis Colts. Lovie Smith has just been appointed as new head coach for the hosts and it will be interesting to see how much Texans can do in upcoming months. Which side is going to be more successful? 

If we are going to trust the latest lines, Colts are much closer to claim victory on Sunday. Betting sites in the USA have given them seven points advantage over Houston. This will be fifth year for Indianapolis under Frank Reich. Team earned nine victories in the previous campaign. There is zero doubt that Jonathan Taylor is one of the best running backs in the league, and fans are hoping to see good numbers coming from him this time around. That can’t be said for 37-years old Matt Ryan as the QB though. 

Over to the hosts, Texans have impressed us during the preseason period by winning all three games. They were victorious against LA Rams, San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints. With the help of home crowd, we don’t see them losing this game in spread. 

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: This could easily become one of the highest scoring games on Sunday 

  • Indianapolis’ preseason games against Lions and Bills ended with a lot of points 
  • Colts scored 31 points against this opponent in the previous campaign 
  • Visiting offensive line can be described as very explosive 

As for the secondary selection, the current line for total points is 45.5 and we are leaning towards the Over option. It was mentioned above that visitors have strong running power and great wide receivers. Texans scored total of 58 points in three preseason games which averages around 19 per game.
