The Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens meet Sunday in NFL action at M&T Bank Stadium.
The Houston Texans look for a win after winning six of their last eight games. The Houston Texans have split their last four road games. Deshaun Watson is completing 70.2 percent of his passes for 2,432 yards, 18 touchdowns and five interceptions. Watson has two or more touchdown passes in 11 of his last 18 games. DeAndre Hopkins and Will Fuller V have combined for 1,115 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Kenny Stills has 22 receptions. The Houston Texans ground game is averaging 142.8 yards per contest, and Carlos Hyde leads the way with 704 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Houston is allowing 21.2 points and 361.4 yards per game. Zach Cunningham leads the Houston Texans with 68 tackles, Whitney Mercilus has 5.5 sacks and Tashaun Gipson has two interceptions.
The Baltimore Ravens look to stay hot while building on their five-game winning streak. The Baltimore Ravens have won three of their last four home games. Lamar Jackson is completing 65.9 percent of his passes for 2,036 yards, 15 touchdowns and five interceptions. Jackson has eight touchdown passes and five interceptions in his last six games. Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown have combined for 987 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Nick Boyle has 21 receptions. The Baltimore Ravens ground game is averaging 197.2 yards per contest, and Jackson leads the way with 702 yards and six touchdowns. Defensively, Baltimore is allowing 21 points and 344.1 yards per game. Patrick Onwuasor leads the Baltimore Ravens with 41 tackles, Matthew Judon has four sacks and Marlon Humphrey has two interceptions.
The Texans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a bye week and 2-7 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The Ravens are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games on fieldturf and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games. The Texans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings and the under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Ravens last 7 games overall. The over is 6-2 in Texans last 8 road games.
The Houston Texans are 4-1 ATS in their last five games as a road underdog. The Baltimore Ravens are 0-6 ATS in their last six games as a home favorite. The Houston Texans have had an extra week to prepare and get some guys back from injury, mainly on the defensive side. The Baltimore Ravens are probably the hottest team in the league right now and Lamar Jackson is getting more and more comfortable in the pocket. I love me some Deshaun Watson and we've cashed on the Texans a lot this year, but this team isn't built for the physical style of the Ravens. The Baltimore Ravens are going to bully the Texans in the trenches and that banged up secondary will have trouble as well. Give me the Ravens by a touchdown.
