Houston Texans (2-7) vs New England Patriots (4-5)
Sunday, November 22, 2020 at 1:00 pm
Take the Texans and Patriots over the total of 48.5 points in this matchup.
The Texans were held to mere 7 points last week in a 10-7 loss at Cleveland in blistery weather conditions the Texans offense really struggled.
I expect the offense to bounce back at home in this matchup vs the Pats in a high scoring affair.
Before the Cleveland matchup, Texans games had averaged an average of 61.7 PPG.
The run defense is anemic allowing 167.4 yards per game, last in the NFL and the Pats thrive on the run.
2 of the last 3 Pats games have gone over the total as Newton is healthy and has a nose for the end zone with 4 rushing TDs in that span and 9 for the season.
The over is 9-3 in the last 12 meetings head to head and 4-1 in the last 5 in Houston.
