The Seattle Seahawks and Houston Texans face off on Sunday in an NFL showdown at NRG Stadium. When these two teams faced off in 2017 it was the Seahawks that were able to come away with the 41-38 victory.
The Seahawks come into this game with a 4-8 record overall and they have gone 6-6 against the spread. Even though the Seahawks have struggled this season, they are coming off a 30-23 victory against the San Francisco 49ers in the last game. Russell Wilson threw for 231 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. The Seahawks are averaging 19.92 points per game which is 22nd in the NFL. The Seahawks defense has been strong averaging 20.8 points per game which is 6th best in the NFL. The team did sign Adrian Peterson before the last game, and he did score in the last game. The defense has lost Jamal Adams for the season with the torn labrum.
On the other side of this matchup is the Houston Texans who sit with a 2-10 record overall and they have gone 5-7 against the spread. In the last game against the Colts it was an ugly game as they lost 31-0. Tyrod Taylor was benched in the last game and Davis Mills finished the game. Mills completed 6 of his 14 passes for 49 yards. It’s unclear at this point who is going to get the start in this game. The Texans are averaging 13.7 points while their defense is giving up 26.9 points per game. The defense hasn’t been great, but more importantly it’s been the offense that has been really holding this team back. No matter who gets the start in this game the offense is going to need to be a lot better.
The Seahawks are 1-7 against the spread in their last eight games as a road favorite. The Texans are 0-4 against the spread in their last four games played in Week 14. The under is 6-0 in the Seahawks last six road games. The under is 4-0 in the Texans last four games overall.
The Texans are going to have real issues scoring, and I also believe the Seahawks aren’t going to run up the score in this game. The Texans are going to finish with 10 points or less, and it would be shocking if the Seahawks finished with over 20 points. Back the under.
