Bet The Houston Texans Because…
The Houston Texans just got their first win of the season without rookie Deshaun Watson under center by beating Arizona 31-21 on Sunday to cash in as a 2.5-point home favorite. Veteran quarterback Tom Savage passed for 230 yards and two touchdowns while running back Devonta Freeman added 65 rushing yards and two scores. Pro Bowl wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins added four catches for 76 yards and one score in the win and Houston’s defense picked off pitiful backup Blaine Gabbert twice.
Bet The Baltimore Ravens Because…
The Baltimore Ravens shut out the listless Green Bay Packers 23-0 last weekend as veteran signal-caller Joe Flacco tossed one TD pass and running back Alex Collins rushed for another score. However, it was Baltimore’s smothering defense that really led the way to victory by picking off Packers backup, Brett Hundley, three times and limiting Green Bay to just 75 rushing yards in the win.
Houston Vs Baltimore Betting Analysis
48 percent of public bettors like the Houston Texans to cover the chalk in this affair. Baltimore may have a solid defense, but they certainly aren’t very explosive offensively. Still, though, I like the Ravens to get the win and narrow ATS cover against a Houston Texans team that only beat Arizona last weekend because of the absolutely pitiful play of backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who should never see any action before Drew Stanton if you ask me.
The Texans are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 Monday night games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games in November. On the flip side of the coin, the Baltimore Ravens are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 Monday Night Football games and a robust 9-4-1 ATS in their last 14 games against their AFC counterparts. Baltimore is a lot healthier after getting a bye in Week 10 and I believe their desperation will drive them to the home win and super narrow ATS cover.
