New York Giants at Houston Texans Overview

New York Giants

2018 has gotten off to yet another raucous start for Big Blue, as the Giants have yet to win a game despite closing as a field goal underdog in two separate occasions against both Jacksonville at home and their old nemesis Dallas on the road. Despite making losing a routine errand, the Giants only fell short by a combined twelve points in their two defeats. The prime factor of the Giants' plight? Their lack of an offensive line which has sputtered and stalled the Giants potentially explosive operations.

Houston Texans

The Texans come in off two bitter defeats of their own against the New England Patriots and Tennessee Titans. Both teams respectively qualified for the playoffs in 2017. Against New England as a 6.5-point underdog, the Texans would fail to cover by a slim difference as they would lose by a touchdown. Houston would follow this up with a field goal loss against Tennessee.

Reasons To Avoid Houston

The Texans have already seen themselves spot an additional 2.5 points in some cases, automatically reducing the value in backing the Texans in this market. Many pundits will emphasize the match-up of New York’s porous offensive line against perhaps the best defensive weapon in the game in Defensive End J.J. Watt. However, that kind of hyperbole is what sells the stock of Houston and sets up takers for a potential overlay.

Reasons To Back New York

Almost all bore witness to New York's defeat in Big D on Sunday Night Football. Generally speaking, the loser of any primetime contest is a popular fade choice in the following week. Given how the Giants played we are seeing such an overreaction taking shape. However, all this phenomenon does is allow us to take back an inflated point spread which in turn bodes tremendous equity. If New York can solve its problems up front, there are a lot of weapons that can hurt this Houston defense.

New York at Houston Prediction 09/23/2018

The figure on the board here is generally an underdog-friendly number. The number would curate the illusion of an easy cover if the Texans were to win by a touchdown. However, Houston won’t be able to do such a thing. The Giants will come with a revamped strategy and have a coming out party at the expense of the Texans. Don’t be shocked if the Giants win this one outright.
