NFL Football: Sunday, October 27, 2019 at 4:25 pm (NRG Stadium)
The Line: Houston Texans -6.5 -- Over/Under: 51.5
The Oakland Raiders and the Houston Texans will meet up in NFL activity on Sunday.
The Raiders come in here at 3-3 so far. Oakland’s wins have come versus the Broncos, Colts and Bears but they’ve lost to the Chiefs, Colts and Packers.
In the loss to Green Bay, Raiders QB Derek Carr managed 293 yards with two TDs and one INT. Joshua Jacobs rushed for 124 yards and Darren Waller managed 126 yards with two TDs on seven catches.
Over on the Texans’ side, they're 4-3 so far. Houston has wins over the Jaguars, Chargers. Falcons and Chiefs but they’ve lost otherwise to the Saints, Panthers and Colts.
In the loss to Indy, Texans QB Deshaun Watson put up 308 yards with a TD and two picks, and Carlos Hyde had 35 rush yards. DeAndre Hopkins led the receivers in that one with 106 yards and a TD on nine catches.
The Raiders are 4-1 ATS in their last five after an ATS loss and 1-4 ATS in their last five on turf. Oakland is 1-5 ATS in their last six in October and 5-15-1 ATS in their last 21 road games.
Meanwhile, the Texans are 5-0-1 ATS in their last six in Week 8 and 4-1-1 ATS in their last six after a straight-up loss. Houston is 4-1 ATS in their last five in October and 6-0-1 ATS in their last seven after an ATS loss.
Oakland had a couple of down games on the scoreboard in their second and third outings, but in the three games since they’ve done pretty well offensively with at least 24 scored in each. The Raiders have also beaten two decent teams in the Colts and Bears in that stretch.
Houston’s been doing well over their last three games also despite the disappointing loss to the Colts their last time out. The Texans have given up at least 24 points in each of the last trio though, and with that in mind I think the Raiders can get in there to cover.
