Making sports betting picks is one of my specialties, and today at Cappers Info, I’m making my Sunday Football Tipster pick based upon the football trends and NFL odds for the Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts game on Sunday, December 30th at Lucas Oil Stadium at 1:00 p.m. ET.
Houston Texans (12-3, 9-6 ATS) -7
Indianapolis Colts (10-5, 10-5 ATS) +7
It’s tough not to believe Head Coach Chuck Pagano when he says that his Colts are going to be playing this one full bore in spite of the fact that there is nothing to gain or lose directly by the outcome of the year. Indianapolis is the lesser of these two teams for sure, and that was proven when these teams met at Reliant Stadium just two weeks ago. That doesn’t mean that taking the points here isn’t a good idea.
QB Andrew Luck knows that he has to play better ball against some of the top defenses in the conference if his team is going to get out of even the first round of the playoffs next week. This is a nice opportunity for him to get the job done against a Houston defense that has the potential to be out of this world. The offensive line for Indy has seen what DE JJ Watt brings to the table, and now, I figure that this unit has a lot better chance of at least slowing him down the second time around than it had in the very first meeting of the year of these two teams.
I really don’t know if the Colts are going to go at it for the full 60 or not, but if they do, they have a great chance of winning this game. Remember that history really isn’t on the side of the Texans either. Remember that Houston has never won a game here in Indianapolis in team history, including last year in a 19-16 loss that kept the Texans from having a shot at a first round bye in the playoffs. It could be de ja vu all over again for Houston.
Texans @ Colts Tips: Colts +7
