Houston at Buffalo
Sunday 11/16 01:00 PM Eastern
4 units on Houston +7 (-110) (risk 4 to return 7.64) RESULT: WIN
Houston is up and down this year and they’re due for an “up.” This game features one of the league’s worst offenses (Buffalo – ranked 28th) versus one of its worst defenses (Houston ranked 31st). Buffalo has failed to get the ball in the end-zone in three of its last four games. QB Drew Bledsoe is having the worst year of his career partially due to the fact he lost one of his top receivers from a year ago (Peerless Price). His other main target, Eric Moulds, has been hobbled with a groin injury. This week he said “I need a rest... it’s going to be an injury that’s going to hamper me for the rest of the season.” The Buffalo running game is even worse, averaging just 86 yards per game. The Texans qualify for a trend that involves poor teams against a similarly poor opponent off a loss that is 36-10 against the spread.
