Week 7 seems to be filled with divisional clashes including one in the AFC South with the Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts. Fans and bettors expect this to be a good game as both teams come into it on pretty level pegging. The Houston Texans, who are 4-2 this year so far, really seem to have found a gem in quarterback Deshaun Watson, who has helped lead the team to some epic wins this season. Watson’s performances have been so inspiring; he has even been shortlisted as a potential candidate for MVP this season.
The Colts have shown great perseverance this season, and it has paid off at times. They head into this matchup with a record of 3-2, and off a bye week. Jacoby Brissett did well this season after being thrust into the hot seat following Andrew Luck’s retirement. He has done well to help lead his team to some wins. It looks like it’s going to be difficult to make a good prediction.

- Both teams picked up big wins against the Kansas City Chiefs, who started off the season incredibly and are considered strong Super Bowl favorites.

- Moneyline – we’re going for the Texans. Although the Colts are coming off a bye and will be playing at home, the Texans seem to be working hard to try and make the playoffs. They haven’t really let any game get away from them and have picked up some surprising victories against big opposition. We think that they’ll be able to do it again against the Colts.
