The Texans are going back to the city by the bay for the first time since 2013 in a matchup with the 49ers.
After shocking the Los Angeles Chargers and the NFL world last week, the Houston Texans come into Week 17 with a two-game winning streak (that’s right!) and are set to take on the San Francisco 49ers. This is a critical game for the 49ers as they look to stay alive in the NFC playoff race.
Now, if Houston is set to upset mode again, then bettors will want to take Houston. If San Francisco is hampered by injuries or players missing time, that’s exactly where Houston has excelled this year in their big wins. Take a look further down to see just how much a bettor could win if they place money on Houston on Sunday.
The 49ers lead the all-time series, with a 3-1 record. Houston’s only win came in 2009 via a 24-21 decision.

Houston vs. San Francisco 49ers prediction Week 17
The 49ers are currently the NFC’s sixth seed. A loss to Houston would drop them to 8-8 and the seventh seed in the playoff race. So not all is lost here for San Francisco. However, this is a similar situation that the Chargers walked into last week, and they got popped in the mouth by the Texans.
After Davis Mills’ inspiring performance, I think Houston can win on the road against this 49ers squad that was swept by the lowly Seattle Seahawks. It’s going to be a big win for Mills and David Culley.
