Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans Still Hottest Game

Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans Odds

The Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans was still the most bet on game heading into Sunday morning with nearly all the action in this one going the Colts way.  Just over 80 percent of the backing was on the Colts at Sportsbook.com.  Among leading handicappers, Indianapolis was getting nearly 65 percent of the backing. 

For the undefeated Colts, the mantra remains "one game at a time".

"Coach Dungy said it when he first got here. Coach Mora had done a great job in setting a tone with the players, what to expect and how to play the game from a focus standpoint," Head Coach Jim Caldwell said. 

"That was something that [Dungy] didn't have to address when he got here. Tony was able to hit the ground running with a veteran team that already knew how to approach each game. That was very beneficial in what he was able to accomplish with this team in the years that he was here."

The Texans, meanwhile, sit at .500 coming into this game.  This is pretty much the story of Houston over the past couple of years. 

The Houston Texans were averaging almost 28 points when they went on a three-game winning streak earlier this season. Since then the offense has slowed down and managed just 17 points in each of the last two close losses.

Andre Johnson has an idea why the Texans struggled in Monday's 20-17 loss to the Titans.

"I think we operate well when we're in a rhythm,'' he said. "I don't think Monday night we were able to get into a good rhythm where we have the long drives and things like that.''

The Texans had to settle for a field goal against the Titans after three straight plays from the 8-yard line netted zero yards. In their first meeting with the Colts, also a 20-17 loss, Houston lost a fumble on the 1-yard line.

"It's about us executing our plays,'' Johnson said. "Hitting a pass here, getting a run there, just making positive plays every time we touch the ball. It kind of gets you in a groove when you have that happen. When that happens for us we go out and play pretty well as an offense.''

When we consider the Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans odds, past head-to-head results are against the Texans even covering.  Indianapolis has won the last 10 in this series and covered 8 by the current 3 point spread.  The good news for Houston is their time might be due and they did cover the current spread the last time they played Indy.

Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans odds trends to consider before betting on this game include the following:

The Indianapolis Colts are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 games following a S.U. win.

The Colts are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 vs. AFC South.

The Texans are  5-0 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss.
