Patriots vs Texans Preview and Prediction
New England Patriots vs Houston Texans
The almighty Patriots are rested and aching to start their NFL Playoffs as they welcome the Houston Texans to the Gilette Stadium. No surprises here, they are the biggest favourite this weekend going as high as 15-1 favourites in most sportsbooks while the comeback on the Texans is +900. Everyone loves a good underdog story but even if the Texans' defense led the NFL in yards allowed (301.3 per game), the Pats are just much better especially on offense.
Normally, a 16-point spread is risky even if it's a team as good as the Patriots but not today. The Pats have the better defense and offense and the only stat the Texans are seemingly better at is passing defense but good luck limiting Brady who set another NFL record by having the best TD-Int ratio (25-2). The Pats became the first team to start more QBs (3) than have interceptions. Brock Osweiler on the mean time is turnover prone and arguably the worst starting QB in the league. It will be a long brutal day for Texans fans.

It doesn't get more straightforward than this. The Patriots' defense led the NFL in points allowed (15.0 per game) and are better than the Texans in almost all facets of the game especially where it matters most: coaching and quarterback play. The Brady-less Pats also squashed the Texans 27-0 in Week 3. A 16-point spread doesn't even sound so crazy but there's a chance the Pats bench the starters by the 4th period if the game is out of hand and garbage scoring occurs. And it's rare to say this but as 15-1 faves, the Pats are a bargain bet.
