HOUSTON -4.5 over Indianapolis
The bruised and battered Indianapolis Colts limp into Houston off a close win against Jacksonville that they should have lost, had it not been for the horrendous kicking of Jacksonville rookie Jason Myers who missed 3 field goals at the end of regulation and overtime. Colts have failed to cover the spread in fourth straight games and we think they make it 5 straight ATS loses tonight as Andrew Luck’s non-disclosed separated shoulder will keep him out of the game and 40 year old flu ridden Matt Hasselback will be at the controls for Indy.
Even with Luck, the Colts offense has looked lost as they are averaging just 18 points per game while their defense has been a sieve giving up almost 400 yards per game. Houston was humiliated by Atlanta last Sunday 48-21 but we expect them to make a statement tonight and end Indy’s 15 game AFC South winning streak. Arian Foster should get the ball early and often against the Colts 26th ranked rushing defense and the Texans trounce Indy.
