Houston Texans vs Indianapolis Colts 1/8/2023 Expert Picks and Betting Tips

The Houston Texans will go against the Indianapolis Colts in NFL action in Lucas Oil Stadium, IN, on Sunday, January 8, 2023, at 1:00 PM ET. If the Texans lose to the Colts on Sunday, they will have the worst record in the NFL and the top pick in the draft. However, the Bears are chasing them, and if the Texans win and the Bears lose, the Bears will have the lowest record and the top pick in the draft. What else can be said at this point about the Texans? They are a really terrible football team who last week lost 31-3 to the Jaguars. The Titans are playing as poorly as anyone in the league, but they did defeat them two weeks ago for only their second victory of the year.

The Texans are bad even when fully healthy, but they already gave up after losing several important players along the way, including running back Dameon Pierce. As he did last week, when he was 22 for 40 for 202 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions, Davis Mills is likely to start as quarterback this Sunday. As well, Jeff Driskel took a couple of pictures. Given that Mills did not exactly exude confidence as the quarterback of the future, one may assume that the Texans will be looking for a quarterback with that first or second pick in 2019. Pierce is a good running back, but the receiving rankings are thin. Brandin Cooks is the best, but there aren’t many players to follow. In terms of points scored per game, the Texans rank 30th, while their opponents rank 26th.

  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Houston’s last 8 matches.
  • The Houston Texans are 1-10 SU in their last 11 matches.
  • The Texans are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 contests with the Indianapolis Colts.

The Colts were 3-2-1 at one time during the season, but after dropping nine of their previous ten contests, they are now 4-11-1 and have one of the worst records in the NFL. They dropped six straight matches, so you can bet their first-round draft pick will go to a quarterback. This season, they used three different quarterbacks, and each of them performed poorly. Matt Ryan had big expectations, but it appears that he should retire. Then came Sam Ehlinger, who demonstrated that he is probably not the solution, and Nick Foles, whose prime already passed.

Ehlinger will therefore receive another chance to start in the last week of the campaign. He did not have a positive first impression, but perhaps he can offer the Colts a foundation for the future. But in the end, it seems likely that the Colts will target a quarterback in the draft. There isn’t much else to say. Zach Moss performed admirably last week in the Colts’ 38-10 loss to the Giants despite Jonathan Taylor, their great running back, being out with an injury. He gained 74 yards on the ground. At the receiver, Michael Pittman is a nice addition. He is a capable No. 1 receiver; all he needs is someone to send the ball his way. The Colts ranked 30th in terms of points scored and 28th in terms of points given up.

  • The Colts are 1-4 ATS in their previous 5 meetings. 
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Indianapolis’ previous 5 meetings.
  • The Indianapolis Colts are 0-6 SU in their last 6 matches.

Houston Texans vs Indianapolis Colts. The NFL pick for this game is the Indianapolis Colts. NFL fans can expect an odd weekend due to the horrific injury to Damar Hamlin of the Bills, who suffered a heart attack against the Bengals and is still in critical condition. As a result, the league as a whole will be overshadowed by everyone’s concern about Hamlin. Then, though, two teams are left with nothing to play for. The Texans would really benefit more from a defeat. They might not intentionally tank it, but let’s be honest—they won’t be devastated if they fell short and the top pick was chosen. Since Indy is playing at home, I’m sure they’ll want to win to honor Jeff Saturday, who’ll likely be coaching his final match. The Indianapolis Colts will win to a predicted score of 21-17.
