The Houston Texans will play the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday afternoon at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Houston Texans are 1-3-1 this season after they defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars by a score of 13-6 in their last game. Houston was out gained by a total of 422-248, but forced two turnovers in the win. The Houston offense is averaging 17.2 points per game with 192 passing yards per game and 99.2 rushing yards per game. Davis Mills has thrown for 1,048 yards, five touchdowns, and four interceptions for the Texans this season. Dameon Pierce has rushed for 412 yards and three scores, while Nico Collins has caught 15 passes for 272 yards for Houston. The Houston defense is giving up 19.8 points per game and 414.2 yards per game.

The Las Vegas Raiders are 1-4 this season after they lost to Kansas City by a score of 30-29 in their last game. Las Vegas scored to pull within one point of Kansas City with about four minutes left, but failed to make the two-point conversion. The Las Vegas offense is averaging 25 points per game with 239.2 passing yards per game and 121.4 rushing yards per game. Derek Carr has thrown for 1,279 yards, eight touchdowns, and four interceptions for the Raiders this season. Josh Jacobs has rushed for 490 yards and three scores, while Davante Adams has caught 29 passes for 414 yards and five touchdowns for Las Vegas. The Las Vegas defense is allowing 26 points per game and 359.2 yards per game.

Houston is 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games against the AFC and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 road games. The under is 8-2 in Houston’s last 10 road games. Las Vegas is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 October games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record. The over is 6-0 in Las Vegas’ last 6 Week 7 games. The over is 4-1 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Las Vegas played pretty well in their last game and almost stole a win on the road. Houston was out played by Jacksonville, but did enough to get the win. Las Vegas is the better team in this matchup and they are desperate for a win if they want to compete for a playoff spot. I like the Raiders to win big here.
