Houston reeling on offense with Tom Savage under center


The Houston Texans are 6-2 SU and ATS in their last eight games coming off consecutive losses. To continue that positive trend of breaking up losing streaks, they’ll need to find some success on offense with Tom Savage at quarterback Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.

  • The Texans are 10-2 SU in their last 12 games at home against teams with losing records.
  • The Cardinals are 18-6 ATS in their last 24 games on the road against teams with losing records.
  • The total has gone OVER in 11 of the Cardinals’ last 14 games on the road.

Savage has been extremely ineffective in three starts for Houston, leading the team to an 0-3 SU and ATS record while completing only 47.3 percent of his passes. In contrast, the Texans were 3-3 SU and 5-1 ATS in Deshaun Watson’s six starts before his ACL injury. Houston is just 3-6 ATS in its last nine games at home.

The Texans won’t be the only team with quarterback issues heading into this Sunday’s matchup. With Carson Palmer out for the year with a broken arm and backup Drew Stanton nursing a knee injury, third-stringer Blaine Gabbert could get the start for Arizona against Houston. Gabbert has failed in his previous two starting gigs with Jacksonville and San Francisco and owns a 38:37 career touchdown-to-interception ratio. Arizona is 12-5 SU in its last 17 games played in November.
