Game Analysis & Picks
Divisional foes Indianapolis Colts and Houston Texas meet in Week 1. These teams are heading in opposite directions as the Colts are favorites to win the AFC South at -135 and have upgraded both offense and defense at key positions. Conversely, the Texans finished last season at 4-13 and are still in full rebuild mode under new coach Lovie Smith. The Colts are heavy favorites to win (-360) for a reason. They beat Houston by a combined score of 62-3 last season, and we should expect much of the same on Sunday. Roll with the Under (-110) with Houston failing to score many points and a much better Indianapolis team covering the 7 point spread (-110).
Parris Campbell (Colts) over 29.5 receiving yards (-112) – Expect a breakout year for the 3rd-year wideout. Campbell should receive more targets with Matt Ryan under center and reaching 30 yards should be fairly easy against this weak Houston defense. Take Campbell to start off his season with a few catches and first downs with new QB Matt Ryan.
