Houston Has Won its Last 4 Games at Home

The Houston Texans are 4-0 SU and 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games at home. After losing on the road Monday night, the Texans hope for a successful return home on Sunday when they host the Detroit Lions.

  • The Lions are 3-0 ATS in their last 3 games against the Texans.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Lions' last 3 games against the Texans.  
  • The Lions are 7-17 ATS in their last 24 games on the road after failing to cover in their most recent road game.

Houston hasn't fared well against NFC teams in recent seasons, with a 4-11 SU and 6-9 ATS record in its last 15 games against opponents in the NFC. Mustering up just nine points in a 27-9 loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday, Houston saw its offensive total drop to 16.7 points per game and now ranks 31st in the NFL in scoring, ahead of only the Chicago Bears.

Offense hasn't been a problem for the Detroit Lions thanks to the outstanding play of quarterback Matt Stafford. Stafford has never eclipsed a passer rating of 97.2 over the course of a full season, but he's on pace to do so in 2016 with a rating of 105.7 through his first seven games. The veteran has thrown 15 touchdowns with just four interceptions so far.

Detroit is 5-1 SU in its last six games coming off a win as an underdog.
