NFL Betting Predictions: Cleveland Browns at Houston Texans
Sunday the Cleveland Browns (3-4) travel to take on the Houston Texans (5-3). BetDSI Sportsbook current Live Lines show the Houston Texans as a large -11 point favorite over the Cleveland Browns.
In Cleveland they are having all sorts of troubles as the Browns have lost yet another game, to the San Francisco 49ers 20-10. While the Houston Texans have been tearing it up with a win against the Jacksonville Jaguars 24-14.
The Cleveland Browns offense have been struggling terribly this year, they don’t seem to have enough offensive playmakers around QB Colt McCoy to put up big numbers on any given day. Colt McCoy against the tough 49ers defense went 22/34 for 241 yards, 1 TD 1 INT, and looking like he had greasy fingers by fumbling the rock 4 times. The Browns had no running game last week no one managed more than 37 yards, with McCoy getting 30 on 8 rushes.
The Browns defense has holes all over it as they were hit up for 348 yards against the 49er offense, 177 passing, and a ridiculous 174 yards rushing. They managed managed absolutely no turn-overs, and only one sack applying no pressure to the opposing QB.
With the absence of WR Andre Johnson due to injury, the Houston Texans have still been finding ways to put big numbers on the board. Last week against the jaguars they put up 24 points, with QB Matt Schaub going 16/30, 225 yards, and a TD. Arian Foster had a workhorse type day running 33 times for 112 yards and a TD.
The Texans defense held the Jaguars to only 14 points last week, holding the opposition to only 174 total yards, a very low 97 yards passing, and 84 yards rushing. The D managed to get two turnovers, when they intercepted Jaguars rookie QB Blaine Gabbert twice.
My Prediction: These two teams have been playing at polar opposites, the Cleveland Browns have been struggling. While the Houston Texans have been lighting teams up, and getting enough from their usually sluggish defense to win ball games. The Houston Texans should win this one in a large way at home over the struggling Cleveland Browns.
