Colts vs Texans 2010 NFL odds, Predictions & NFL Picks Week 1: In week 1 of the NFL picks season, in a key AFC South NFL predictions match-up, the defending AFC Champion Indianapolis Colt travel to Houston to take the Texans in what is slated to be one of the more exciting week 1 NFL picks matchups on tap. The las Vegas odds makers have placed the Colts as -1(-110) point NFL odds favorites as the road team. The Colts were dominant as a road favorite, going 7-1 against the spread (ATS) in the 2009 NFL predictions season as road favorites while the Texans has a 2-6 ATS NFL picks record at home in 2009. Indianapolis swept the NFL picks season series a year ago and the Colts have won 6 straight NFL predictions contsts against the Texans.
Since its inception, the Indianapolis Colts have been the dominant NFL picks contender in the AFC South and have especially beaten-up on the Texans, going 15-1 against Houston during that time span. Indianapolis has won a number of close NFL predictions match-ups but they seem to find a way to earn NFL picks victories.
Though the supporting cast has changed over the NFL predictions seasons, the constant in Indianapolis has been Peyton Manning. Manning had another great NFL picks season in 2009, passing for 33 TDs and 4,500 yards, and shows no signs in slowing down. His passing offense will match-up against the Texans’ #1 passing attack triggered by quarterback Matt Schaub. The Colts, though, will not be facing Schaub on defense, and will be going-up against the Texans’ 18th ranked pass defense in today's week 1 NFL picks contest. Manning should find lots of space for Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark, Austin Collie, and Pierre Garcon. Neither team runs the ball but the Colts have invested time and high draft picks on Joseph Addai and Donald Brown so at least they will attempt to establish a ground game in today's week 1 NFL predictions match-up which kicks off at 1PM.
Houston features some impact players on a defense for today's week 1 NFL picks battle that improved dramatically in 2009. Defensive end Mario Williams is maddeningly inconsistent, but led the team in sacks with 9 last NFL picks season. Brian Cushing and DeMeco Ryans are Pro Bowl-type linebackers who can cover, stuff the run, and in Cushing’s case, get after the quarterback. Houston will attack Manning but will be susceptible to the pass without last year’s shut-down cornerback Dunta Robinson. Manning will exploit the corners and could have another big game against the Texans.
Expect a close week 1 NFL picks contest, as always between these two teams, and, until the Texans prove otherwise, give the Colts the your picks for this week 1 NFL predictions battle.
