Houston has enjoyed two impressive wins over Jacksonville and Pittsburgh and C.J. Stroud so far appears to be the correct draft pick by the Texans as he threw for 306 yards and two TDs, both to wide receiver Nico Collins, in their 30-6 blowout win against the Steelers. Houston's defense also has stepped up and it allowed only 225 total yards on Sunday when Kenny Pickett was knocked out of the game with an injury and now the Texans will face another second-year QB in Desmond Ridder, who had a miserable day against Jacksonville as he threw two interceptions on two straight first-half throws and finished 19 of 31 for 191 yards in a 23-7 loss. Houston has covered six of eight as an underdog and four of its past five road contests. Atlanta is 11-25 ATS as a favorite of 0.5-3.0 points, 9-19 ATS its past 28 October games and 0-5 ATS off a double-digit loss versus a team off a straight-up underdog win. The Texans are 4-0-1 ATS as road dogs of 0.5-3.0 points and the Falcons are 0-4 ATS after scoring fewer than 15 points their previous game. Play the Texans.
