The Texans opened their preseason schedule with a 28-26 loss to Green Bay as one-point road underdogs. The total went OVER VietBet’s 36-point line. This past Saturday, they outscored Detroit 30-23 as three-point favorites at home. The total easily went OVER the closing 40.5-point line. As part of last year’s 3-1 straight-up record in the preseason, Houston beat the Cowboys 14-6 as a 4.5-point home favorite. It went 2-1-1 against the spread in those four games.
Deshaun Watson some limited time at quarterback against the Lions and he completed five of his seven passing attempts for 60 yards and a score. Joe Webb III put the ball up 25 times and he completed 14 throws for 186 yards and a score. He was also picked off once. The Texans got a solid effort from Buddy Howell running the ball with 84 yards on 15 carries. He also added a score on the ground.
Dallas was on the wrong end of a 17-9 loss to San Francisco in its preseason opener. It closed as a 3.5-point road underdog and the total stayed UNDER 37.5 points. In Week 2, the Cowboys beat the Los Angeles Rams 14-10 with the total staying UNDER VietBet’s 37-point closing line. They are now 1-5 SU and 2-4 ATS over their last six exhibition contests. The total has stayed UNDER in five of those six games.
Dak Prescott got a chance to run the first team offense and he looked sharp with five completions on five passing attempts for 64 total passing yards. In relief, Cooper Rush went 10-for-16 throwing the ball for 83 yards and a score. In the absence of Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas gained 94 yards running the ball on 24 rushing attempts. Eight different players posted as least one carry.
I am going with the road team both SU and ATS in this Lonestar State tilt. The Texans appear to be further along in their preparations for the new season than their in-state rivals.
