Click Here for the Latest Odds

The Houston Texans will play the Denver Broncos in Week 2 of the NFL regular season on Sunday afternoon at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colorado.

The Houston Texans are 0-0-1 this season after they tied the Indianapolis Colts by a score of 20-20 in Week 1. Houston led 20-3 in the fourth quarter, but they collapsed and were lucky to end the game in a tie. Davis Mills threw for 240 yards and two touchdowns for the Texans. Rex Burkhead rushed for 40 yards and caught five passes for 30 yards for Houston. Brandin Cooks caught seven passes for 82 yards for the Texans. The Houston defense allowed 517 yards and forced two turnovers in the game.

The Denver Broncos are 0-1 this season after they lost to the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football by a score of 17-16. Denver had some very questionable clock management on their last drive of the game and settled for a very long field that was off the mark. Russell Wilson threw for 340 yards and one touchdown for Broncos in the game. Melvin Gordon III rushed for 58 yards and caught two passes for 14 yards for Denver. Jerry Jeudy caught for passes for 102 yards and one score for the Broncos. The Denver defense allowed 253 yards and forced one turnover in the loss.

Houston is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games against the AFC and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The under is 6-1 in Houston’s last 7 road games. Denver is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 Week 2 games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games. The under is 9-3 in Denver’s last 12 games. The under is 5-2-1 in these two teams last 8 head to head meetings.

Houston was outplayed by the Colts in Week 1, but they managed to get out of the game with a tie. Denver was the better team in their game, but two goal line fumbles and poor clock management cost them the game. I expect Denver to bounce back with a much better performance here and get the double-digit win.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
