The Houston Texans are set to face the Buffalo Bills for their Week 4 game as they are trying to snap a two-game losing streak.

This is a very tough task because the Bills are a better team on paper than the Texans, and their defense is pretty good as well. This is the third straight game the Texans will be facing a defense that is a Top 4 ranked unit in the NFL when it comes to yards allowed per game.

The Bills are ranked fourth in the NFL going into the Week 4 game at 252.7 ypg allowed, while the Week 2 opponent of the Houston Texans, the Cleveland Browns, are ranked third in the NFL (248.7 ypg allowed). The Carolina Panthers are the No. 1 rated defense at 191 ypg allowed, as they were the Texans’ Week 3 opponent.

Having defensive injuries the Texans have this Sunday with players injured or out due to COVID-19 doesn’t help their cause either, but the game still has to be played, and it won’t be an easy task at hand for Houston. Even with that said, here are some player prop bets worth taking an extra look at this Sunday.

Houston Texans: 3 best prop bets for Week 4

3.  Davis Mills Passing Touchdowns OVER 0.5 (+175)

The Buffalo Bills have allowed only three passing touchdowns in the first three games combined, so can Houston Texans rookie quarterback Davis Mills have at least one passing touchdown to his credit against the Bills in Week 4?

Mills has two passing touchdowns in the two games he’s played in since replacing Tyrod Taylor who was injured in Week 2. Mills has thrown touchdown passes against the Browns and Panthers, who as stated earlier are two of the best defenses in the league on the stat sheet.

This feat is doable, but sure not a guarantee for the rookie quarterback. The Texans have been able to put together some solid drives inconsistently in thee first three games, so maybe Mills can keep his streak alive with at lest one touchdown pass in this game when the offense is running on all cylinders.
