New England at Houston
Sunday 10/10 01:00 PM Eastern
2 units on Houston +9 (-105) (risk 2 to return 3.9) RESULT: WIN
New England just lost an emotional, hard-fought battle with Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, and now the Patriots have to go on the road to play a team that is ready to redeem itself after getting humiliated, 40-0, at Buffalo on Sunday. Houston beat Jacksonville in the season opener and then lost to two quality teams in Cleveland and Carolina, but it all fell apart last week when Buffalo picked off four passes of Davis Mills, who completed only 11 of 21 for 87 yards while filling in for Tyrod Taylor. The Patriots are averaging only 17.8 points themselves and are 1-3 for the first time in 20 years. New England is #26 in total yards per game and #31 in rushing yards per game. Mac Jones went 31 of 40 for 275 yards and two touchdowns against Tampa Bay, but this week will be his second road start. The Texans won last year's meeting, 27-20, and they also defeated the Pats 28-22 in 2019. New England is 1-8-1 ATS following an ATS win and 2-7 ATS its last nine as a favorite. Take the Texans for a Max Play.
