Houston Texans Vs Indianapolis Colts 12-30-2012 0 views

I have made money on both teams and Indy has had a great season cashing my over 6 win total +125 many weeks ago.

I look at this game as a big win and a statement for houston. I know the teams were even at times for the game in houston but final score 29-17. Both teams have something to play for in this game as Houston is going for the #1 seed and a bye even perhaps. Indy does not want to go back to Gilette plain and simple. No one wants to go to Gilette in January....

Texans come in still with something to prove for a 12-3 team but hey they dig this hoel for themselves and when this defense and team overall got thier backs against the wall last season they almost made it to the Championship game with a 3rd string qb. Probably a fumble away.

Indy I love Luck I love the story but I think this team is too limited to beat this hungry Texans team. I have made $ on this team winning SU as 7 point dogs on the road now a playoff team at home getting 7 that's alot. The key to this team other then the emotional CHUCKSTRONG etc. is they get it they are limited but they know who they are and what they can do.

Don't like the hook and I bought the .5 point on a few sites to get 6.5 I think Houston by over a TD.

Any thoughts ?

Myself I do not like betting against home dogs of more than a touchdown. Thats a lot of points for any professional football team at home. GL JW PS Looks like the line might go down to 6.5 or 6

Well, I kinda agree with ya. Although the Colts have been a decent team and getting a TD seems like a gift, the Texans have something to prove and they need to get some momentum going. Also, figure that a win would secure them home field advantage throughout the playoffs and a first round bye.

The Texans are 0-10 in Indianapolis. This is where we find out if they are contenders or pretenders. While I would favor the Texans, I will be staying away from this game.

I pulled the trigger on Indy +7 -115 on Bookmaker but have not picked on here yet as 5D has it at -125 right now. I am hoping to squeeze another 5-10 cents out of it but as JW points out I also can see this potentially dropping down to 6.5 before game time so I am watching closely. Heritage is already at 6.5.

I play home dogs over 7 blind every time as it has been quite profitable the last few years. It gets tricky at 7 though. It's still slightly profitable blind but it's best to apply some capping/trends.

Again as JW points out getting 7 is huge for any NFL team let alone at home. Texans have not played well at Indy and IMO the Texans have not played a complete & solid game in over a month. One would think that Houston would have a larger motivation factor for the reasons Madhttr points out and I would tend to agree especially following that debacle last week against the Vikings. I do think Houston can get the job done and come away with a win but a full TD is too much IMO.

Upon further study of this game, as of 9:45am I am, leaning more than lightly to Houston. Will, more than likely place a 3 unit bet on Houston minus anything under 7. Meanwhile waiting to see if the line goes down to -6 or less. GL Just Winners

I guess we found out that the Texans are pretenders and aren't really all that and the Colts can be a spoiler in the playoffs. Texans are now 0-11 in Indy, a trend to remember.
