The Colts have been up and down this season but they have owned the Texans straight up the past five years, winning 9 of the 10 games according to NFL betting stats. Gamblers that bet on football should be aware though that the Colts are only 4-6 versus the NFL betting pointspread in those games.
NFL betting history shows that although Houston has only one win against the Colts at home, they have covered four of the last five games. Last year at Houston, the Colts won 30-24 but did not cover the 6.5 point NFL betting pointspread. The Colts are just over .500 the past three seasons as a road favorite according to NFL betting numbers. The Texans are just .500 the past three years as a home underdog according to NFL betting stats.
If you bet on football in terms of totals you have a huge NFL betting stat to consider. 8 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams have gone over the NFL betting number and if that is not enough, the last six games have gone over the total including the last three at Houston. This makes some sense since the Colts have a powerful offense led by Peyton Manning and wide receiver Reggie Wayne. The surprising part is how well Houston has done in terms of scoring points against the Colts. They have scored at least 24 points in three of the last four games against Indianapolis according to NFL betting stats. The Texans go over almost 60% of the time at home the past three years according to NFL betting numbers. Gamblers that bet on football should know that there is one stat that does point to the under and that is that the Colts have gone under in 60% of their road games over the past three years.
The question for gamblers that bet on football to ask is whether or not they want to back a Colts team without Bob Sanders on defense or rely upon Matt Schaub to put up enough points for the Texans to cover the spread.
