4% Knockout Shocker of the Month — Houston Texans
I’m taking the points with the Houston Texans on Sunday. We played the Falcons in week one and cashed when they held on against the Eagles. I like the hiring of Dan Quinn. But I’m not sold on the Falcons just yet, especially as a favorite of this many points after playing as an underdog in their first three games. ATL held on by the skin of their teeth against the Eagles. They escaped in week two, thanks to idiotic mistakes made by the NY Giants. And last weekend, the Falcons had the luxury of playing a Dallas Cowboys’ team with Brandon Weeden at QB. So yes, give them credit for their 3-0 start, but let’s keep it in perspective…it’s a precarious 3-0. Julio Jones is expected to play, but he isn’t 100%, suffering from a hamstring injury. Meanwhile, the Falcons defense is still in the bottom-third in total yards allowed per game and in yards allowed passing per contest. The Texans aren’t elite in their offensive numbers, but they’re solid, ranked in the upper half in the league in both running the football and the passing game. And while we aren’t counting on it, RB Arian Foster may get a shot this week, listed as questionable at the time of this post. Again, this is a play whether Foster plays or not. We should note the Texans are also in the top half in the league in yards passing allowed. Atlanta enters on a 1-14 ATS slide at home following three straight covers and I’ll go against them again. I’m taking the points with the Houston Texans, my Knockout release. Thanks & GL! Scott Spreitzer.
