Texans vs Ravens Prediction

I’m going with Houston to cover on the spread at +8. The Houston rushing offense is likely to exploit a Baltimore defense, that didn’t defend well against the run in their last game. Lock in Houston at +8.

For this matchup, I’m going to be hammering the under, as our model has the Texans and Ravens combining for 45 points. Right now the over/under line is sitting at 45, so I’d recommend getting some action on the under.
