Houston Texans Vs Seattle Seahawks Spread & ATS Pick
Houston Texans (3-3) at Seattle Seahawks (4-2)
When: Sunday, October 29, 2017 at 4:05 PM ET
Where: CenturyLink Field
Stream: CBS Sports
Spread: Seahawks -5.5
Why Bet the Houston Texans Spread at +5.5
Why bet the Texans in this Week 8 matchup? Because they’ve got a superstar at quarterback that looks nothing like a rookie! While a lot of folks are all up in arms at how good Watson has been since taking over for Tom Savage at the midway point of their regular season opener, I’ve been telling anyone that would listen that Watson was going to be a star in the NFL for the last two years. Now, after five and a half games, he’s clearly got what it takes to make it in the NFL. The Texans had a bye last week following their 33-17 beatdown of Cleveland two weeks ago and Watson has been the catalyst for their success by throwing completing 61.5 percent of his passes for 1,297 yards with 15 TD passes and five interceptions.
Why Bet the Seattle Seahawks Spread at -5.5
Why bet on the Seahawks in this one? Because they’re back to playing like the Legion of Boom on defense and look a whole lot better offensively than they did a year ago. Seattle is leading the league in points allowed (15.7 ppg) while Wilson and the offense ranks a respectable 14th by averaging 22.3 points per contest. Seattle has held five of their six opponents this season to 18 points or less and come into this contest off a convincing24-7 beatdown of Eli Manning and the Giants last weekend.
Houston Vs Seattle ATS Pick
54 percent of the betting public likes Houston to cover the chalk as a 5.5-point road dog, but I’m going against the majority by saying the Seattle Seahawks are the team to back in this one. While I love Deshaun Watson’s game and I believe he’s going to become one of the best quarterbacks in the game moving forward, I’m thinking Seattle’s powerful defense is going to make him look like the rookie quarterback he is in this contest.
I know Houston is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a bye week, but Seattle has gone a robust 6-2 ATS in their last 8 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in the month of October. Seattle puts up another great defensive effort and gets just enough offense to make the home win and narrow ATS victory stand up.
Pick: Seattle 5.5
