NFL Picks – Houston Texans vs Indianapolis Colts

At the start of the year, it wasn’t at all weird to think that this would be the Super Bowl of the AFC South. Then Peyton Manning went down and things changed. This week, the Texans head to Indy as 6-point favorites against a Colts team that just got off the snide last weekend. Can the Colts cover the number in this one, or are they going to be left with only a single a win?

The six points seems like a lot for any person making NFL picks this weekend. Simply put, it is hard to cover that kind of number on the road when you don’t have a lot of motivation. The Texans have locked up the division and they mailed it in at home last week. They do have a third string QB under center, so just how much can you possibly trust them this week? There might be a little bit of value in a Colts team that seems to be finding its legs just a little bit. Think about playing the Colts with your NFL picks this weekend, as the Texans might not cover such an inflated number on the road.
