The Texans are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 road games, 5-11 ATS in their last 16 vs. AFC South and 2-6 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Colts are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. AFC South, 9-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Texans are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Indianapolis and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 5-1 in Colts last 6 vs. AFC South. The over is 5-1 in Texans last 6 road games.

The Houston Texans are 5-0-1 ATS in their last six games as a road underdog. The Indianapolis Colts are 6-3-1 ATS in their last 10 games as a home favorite. The Texans are a team that's really starting to grow on me, and they usually play their best in spots you would usually pick against them, like they proved last week on the road against Kansas City. The Indianapolis Colts are probably the surprise team in the league up to this point, as they haven't missed a beat with the retirement of Andrew Luck and the defensive effort is better than what we're used to seeing. The Colts have won four of the last six games against the Texans and they've had an extra week to prepare. It's hard not to side with the Colts at home with the rest in a near pick em.
