Colts vs. Texans Player Props

Texans RB Devin Singletary Over 62.5 Rushing Yards (-110)

Singletary has had a solid season with the Houston Texans, rushing for 834 yards and 3 touchdowns, and averaging 115.8 yards per game where he gets 16+ carries. The Texans, eyeing the AFC South title, aren’t quite in a critical must-win situation but can strengthen their postseason prospects with a win.

Facing the Indianapolis Colts, who have been weak against the run, allowing 108.2 rushing yards per game and 4.2 yards per carry, presents a favorable matchup for Singletary. With the Colts also playing for a playoff spot and deploying their usual defense, Singletary, now the Texans’ lead back, is set for numerous opportunities in this important game.

Where to Bet: Devin Singletary over 62.5 rushing yards | -110 at Bet365

Colts VS. Texans Predictions

The oddsmakers opened the with Colts as the -1.5-point favorites but the lines have since moved to the Colts at +1.5 (-112). On the other side, the Texans are -1.5 (-110) on the point spread.

I’m liking Indianapolis as 1.5-point underdogs to cover the spread for this matchup. Indianapolis had a strong showing in their previous game, especially in the running game against Las Vegas. I believe they’ll maintain that form, so I’m betting on Indianapolis before kickoff.

The Pick: Colts +1.5 | -112 at Fanduel Sportsbook
