1. Texans will win against Denver by no less than 2 touchdowns
This is a game where the Houston Texans need to show just how good of a team they are, but not only that, they need to show themselves they can’t have any letdowns, especially against the 4-8 Broncos as they battle for the AFC South first-place spot.
According to The Action Network, the Texans are -9 point favorites against the Broncos, a line that has jumped from the original -7.5 odds.
Houston has the ability to win games big this season, as they’ve shown that this season including a Week 5 win against the Atlanta Falcons by a 53-32 score, or when they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars, 26-3 in Week 9.
Those teams are similar to the Broncos as they have had similar seasons with losing records, and when the Texans have faced them, the results have been highly in favor of Houston with a 21-point win over the Falcons and a 23-point win over Jacksonville.
Even with the offensive line of Houston being beat up a little bit, especially without Tytus Howard at right tackle for the rest of the season and not having J.J. Watt until possibly the playoffs, Houston’s roster is full of talented players like Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins and their top running backs Duke Johnson and Carlos Hyde. All of those players are talented, and that wasn’t even mentioning wide receivers Will Fuller and Kenny Stills in the conversation.
The Texans have a very talented offense, and if the offense is running on all cylinders, they will be very tough to stop in Week 14. Going into this Sunday’s game, a big-game performance has a realistic chance of happening, which is good news for fans of the Texans.
