How To Bet On Colts Texans – Colts Feel Wrath of Angry Texans Team
Indianapolis Colts @ Houston Texans – Sunday December 16, 2012 1:00PM EST
As bad as the Texans looked on Monday night against the New England Patriots, it is a game that the NFL betting world hopes the Texans do not forget. As he does every week, Tom Brady went out and poked huge holes in one of the best defenses in the NFL. If that were not bad enough, this seemingly inferior New England defense shut down the seemingly superior Texans’ offense all night long. It was the kind of beating that the Texans need to learn from if it wants to win a Super Bowl. It is also the kind of beating that the Texans will probably take out on its next opponent.
The Indianapolis Colts has not shied away from any team all season, but the Colts are that next team for the Texans. The online sports betting experts almost feel sorry for the Colts considering how determined the Texans will be in this game. But a young Colts team has grown up quickly this season and has shown that it can handle just about any situation. The Texans were not physical enough in its loss to the Patriots. There is a good chance that Houston will not make that mistake in week 15, and that is something the Colts have to be ready for.
Why the Texans Will Win
As far as the online sports book experts are concerned, nothing has changed as far as the Texans’ status in the AFC. Houston is still one of the top teams in the AFC, but it cannot lay claim to the title of best team until it beats the Patriots in the playoffs. Between now and the Houston-New England rematch, teams can expect the Texans to refine its game even more and become even more focused on winning. This will be a different Houston team from here on out.
Why the Colts Win
You can never count the Indianapolis Colts out of game until the final whistle has sounded. The Colts could very well take a physical pounding from the Texans for 58 minutes. But if the score is still close by the end of the game, then Andrew Luck is still dangerous. The Colts can expect the Texans to be more physical at the line of scrimmage on offense and defense. Someone on the Colts’ offensive line is going to need to be responsible for watching Texans’ defensive lineman J.J. Watts or this could be a short game for Andrew Luck.
The Bottom Line
The Texans were humiliated in national television by the New England Patriots and it is just what the Texans needed to take that next step. Now we get to see if the Texans learned anything from the beating it took and if it can apply what it learned to beating the Indianapolis Colts.
Pick: Houston Texans
