The Houston Texans are 1-5 straight up and 0-6 against the spread in their last six Thursday games. The Texans will try to turn their Thursday misfortunes around this week on the road against the New England Patriots. Houston is averaging a 2 point road favorite on Thursday at most sportsbooks. Both of these teams have started the season off strong with 2-0 SU and ATS records.
The Patriots are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games against opponents with a winning record, they will be in the rare role of the underdog at the sportsbooks this Thursday night.
The New England Patriots are 9-2 straight up and 10-1 against the spread in their last 11 games as a home underdog. The Patriots will look to punish the oddsmakers as an underdog again this Thursday night hosting the Houston Texans.
The Patriots appeared to be well on their way to a rout against the Miami Dolphins last Sunday as Jimmy Garoppolo threw three early touchdown passes to give New England a 21-0 lead in the second quarter but the team is down to its third-string quarterback for Thursday’s game as a shoulder injury knocked Jimmy Garoppolo
out of the game, the offense went on to score only 10 more points as the Patriots held on for a 31-24 win and over Miami on Sunday.
Third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett threw nine passes and is slated to be this week’s starter with Garoppolo injured and Tom Brady still serving his suspension. Most books drop New England’s win expectancy by about six percent.
On the other side, The Texans have looked sharp in early wins over Chicago and Kansas City, starting the season off 2-0 SU and ATS and improving to 5-0 SU and ATS over their last five regular season games. The defense has been particularly impressive over that five-game stretch, allowing only 9.6 points per game.
A road win in New England, even against an injury-hampered Patriots team, would solidify Houston’s spot as a contender in the AFC at 3-0. The Texans are 1-5 SU and 0-6 ATS in their last six Thursday games.
Thursday’s total is set at 40.5 points. The OVER is 6-1 in the last seven games between these two teams.
New England has already put itself in position to succeed this season with wins in two of the four games that Brady is set to miss. If the Patriots can find a way to win at home against Houston with their third-string quarterback, the Texans could prove to be the team to beat this season.
