The Texans haven’t been as sharp on the defensive end in their last two games and are giving up 28 points per game in their last two games. They will have their hands full with Jacoby Brissett and the Colts offense, which has been better than expected this season.
The Colts are 3-2 and in second place in the AFC South standings, which is better than most pundits expected them to be this season after Andrew Luck announced his retirement prior to the start of the season. They are led by one of the best defensive units in the league, which is holding opponents to 23 points per game. Current betting sites have Texans at Colts as the more heavily bet game in Week 7.
2020 Betting Lines
The team is coming off its best defensive effort of the season, holding the high-scoring Kansas City Chiefs to a season-low 13 points in their last game before their bye week. They will need their defense to step up once again when they face the Texans this week.
Offensively, the Colts are averaging 22.6 points per game, which is 15th in the league. They will need to do a better job than they did against the Chiefs to give themselves a chance to win this game.
The Colts are favored to win this game by 1.5 points. The over/under on total points scored is 48.5. Even though the Colts were able to hand the Chiefs their first loss of the season in their last game, can they repeat in Texans at Colts? Colts have struggled at home and lost their last home game to the Oakland Raiders.
With the Texans playing so well on the offensive end, they should be able to score against the Colts defense and pick up the win on Sunday.
