Against The Spread Pick
The Houston Texans are looking to finish off the job as they head onto the road in Week 16 to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Texans are one win away from clinching its second consecutive division title ans will want to wrap it up now rather than stressing in Week 17. Luckily for them, they have proved they can win on the road against powerful offenses as they took out their rival Tennessee Titans just a week ago. On the flip side, Tampa Bay has been an offensive powerhouse with QB Jameis Winston breaking NFL history left and right, but expect a setback here on Saturday. Winston has been fine without his star WR Mike Evans but now he will also be without Chris Godwin (hamstring). They have been the go-to for Winston and have combined for 153 receptions and 17 touchdowns. I love the Texans here as they continue to roll, especially against a Bucs team that has yet to cover at home this season.
Over Under Pick
Both the Texans and Buccaneers are Top 10 offenses with Houston averaging 24.36 points and Tampa Bay getting 29.71 points per game so far this season. One of the biggest hot streaks in the NFL betting season has been the Buccaneers and the Over as Winston will be throwing the ball practically 95% of the time. It may not be as impressive as the past weeks, but Tampa Bay will be able to score against a Texans team that has conceded 81 points in the past three games. Expect a Watson and Winston shootout with the Houston defense locking down in the 4th quarter. However, the Over will already hit before the Texans take control. The Over is 6-0 in Buccaneers last 6 games after accumulating less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game and 11-1 in Buccaneers last 12 games overall. Give me the Over here.
