The Houston Texans are on a mission to make the playoffs for the first time in team history, this gives them a greater motivation than any statistics, but hereI leave some numbers that may also help.
That statistics is not an exact science, that if my neighbor has two cars and I haven't statistic tells that we have one each, but I think if an event is repeated over time is more likely that the next time could be repeated .
Houston is 8th in total offense (393.6 yards/game).
Houston ranks 1st in the league in total defense (274.0 yards/game).
Tampa ranks 15th in total offense (343.2 yards/game) and a 28th in total defense (398.9 yards/game).
Houston ranks 3rd in the league in rushing (155.1 yards/game) while averaging 4.5/carry. Tampa ranks 25th in the NFL in run defense (132.4 yards/game), and they are yielding a whopping 4.9/carry.
The Texans are 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 games as a favorite.
The Bucs are 7-19 ATS in their last 26 home games.
Tampa is 3-14 ATS in their last 17 games as a home underdog, including 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games as a home dog of 7.0 points or less.
