The Colts needed a pleasant bye week after an street victory against the Chiefs on October 6. Jacoby Brissett completed 18 of 29 passes for 151 yards and one touchdown on six carries and one interception in that game but he ran for nine yards. Sureit wasnt his best performance but what matters is that he found a way to direct his group to a vital victory against a opponent of the season.
Pinnacle gets the Colts as 1-point home favorites for this particular game and facing a Texans with loads of momentum will not be simple. Deshaun Watson led the Texans to an road win against the Chiefs, even with Patrick Mahomes completing 22 of 39 passes for 321 yards and one touchdown, therefore so as to give the Colts an opportunity here Brissett needs a major game.
Brissett has completed 108 of 167 passes for 10 touchdowns and 1,062 yards and he has thrown three touchdown passes. The Texans have allowed six touchdowns in their last two matches, three to five Patrick Mahomes so maybe Brissett to four Matt Ryan and three to throw at least two touchdowns in BetOnline at 3 or +110 touchdowns at +417 really are worth a look.
Even the 26-year-old signal-caller has just two matches with over 250 passing yards this season but this is a game in which he might try to go through the air more frequently, since the Texans rank 24th in the NFL, giving up 268.0 passing yards per game. BetOnline has Brissett to have at 241 passing yards at +127 which will be one of my NFL picks that weekend.
Search for a close game, the Colts have three wins with a margin of 11 points this season and both losses have been by a touchdown or less. I do lean on the stage spread on the NFL chances board at -1 here although maybe not on the Colts, I will take them on the moneyline at 5Dimes.
