Dallas at Houston

3 units on Game Total UNDER PICK (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

The Houston Texans appeared headed for a loss last week trailing Washington 27-10 late in the third quarter. Washington decided to go into a prevent defense, and we all have come to know what happens when a team does that - it prevents them from winning. Houston got even on a 4th and 10 prayer to Andre Johnson and went on to win the game in overtime. Washington defended this Texans team well, limiting them to a TD and a FG, and I believe Dallas is going to do the same. The Cowboys at 0-2 is a disgrace, and the coaching and play calling have to come into question. The Cowboys have thrown the ball 99 times and run it just 42 times. When you attempt to throw the ball over 70% of the time with three world-class running backs, something is amiss. The coaching staff has been lambasted ad nauseam this week and as a result, I believe the Cowboys are going to run against the Texans. It is usually the game plan vs. a high-powered offense anyway, but if the Cowboys were to pass 70% of the time again this week and lost, heads would roll. Dallas has played 10-3 UNDER in their last 13, including four straight on the road. Houston is 10-4 to the UNDER following a straight-up win, and 6-0 to the UNDER in their last six vs. a team with a losing record. Under Gary Kubiak, this team is 11-3 UNDER in non-conference games. I like the UNDER here.
