Buffalo Bills at Houston Texans Pick - Odds and Betting Predictions

Buffalo Bills at Houston Texans Overview
The Bills come in off yet another win where they made a statement. As a six-point underdog, the Bills went forth and defeated the Tennessee Titans by the score of 13-12 in Buff City, last Sunday. The Bills came into the aforementioned contest on the heels of a shutout loss in Green Bay in the week prior. Despite showing no ability to stop offenses in the first two games this season, Buffalo’s defense was able to win a game of possessions here against a Tennessee team that knocked off Jacksonville and Pittsburgh in consecutive wins.
The Texans come into this game off an overtime victory on Monday Night Football when they defeated the Dallas Cowboys by a score of 19-14 in a Lone Star State showdown. This is the second week that Houston required overtime to notch a win as they defeated the Indianapolis Colts by a similar margin in the week prior.
Reasons To Avoid Buffalo
Very simply, the Bills look too easy here, and as a result, we have seen much of the consensus get all over Buffalo with what appears to be a very generous allotment of points. However, we saw Buffalo come into their meeting with Green Bay in similar regard two weeks ago. The Bills had beaten the Minnesota Vikings in the Twin Cities as a 16.5-point underdog outright and then came in once again as a heavy dog at Green Bay. The Bills got a lot of love but got utterly demolished in their follow-up.
Reasons To Back Houston
Given the fact Houston has won two weeks in a row in overtime, one of which was televised on national television for audiences across America, the Texans made a poor impression to many which will cause almost all to turn away from them here with what appears to be a big glass of juice to swallow. However, Houston is far more balanced on both sides of the ball compared to both Green Bay (yes even with Rodgers under center as they have no defense) and Tennessee. The Texans can work both sides of the ball effectively against the Bills.

Buffalo at Houston Prediction 10/14/2018
Houston will hone home field advantage and control this contest from wire to gate. Buffalo is set up for a considerable let-down here yet again, and chances are they don't have an answer for J.J. Watt or Deshaun Watson. Texans win big.
