Red-Hot Texans Becoming a Great Bet

JJ Watt

Don’t look now, but the Houston Texans have been the hottest team in the NFL over the course of the last month. Thanks to four straight victories over the Titans, Bengals, Jets and Saints the Texans have virtually erased an ugly 1-4 start and have vaulted themselves into the thick of the playoff hunt at 6-5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Texans' last seven games after a win.
  • The Bills are 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five games as favorites.
  • The Texans are 3-8 SU in their last 11 games in December.

The Texans have also been a fantastic bet lately, covering the closing spread in their last four games. Houston travels to Buffalo for a date with the Bills in Week 13 and initially opened as 3-point underdogs at most sportsbooks.

Buffalo hasn’t put up much of a fight against the Texans in recent meetings, dropping three in a row straight up and against the spread in the previous three matchups between the clubs.
