Sean Murphy‘s Texans vs. Patriots Free Pick

Play on: Patriots -15 -110 at betonline

My selection is on New England minus the points over Houston at 8:15 pm et on Saturday.

I’m not sure the oddsmakers can set this line high enough in advance of Saturday night’s expected blowout in Foxborough.

Everyone sees it coming, which is a little bit concerning, but I still have to take a shot with the Patriots in a game they should win handily.

I have little faith in the Texans offense leading into this one. New England’s defense is a better unit than it receives credit for, and I’m confident it will come out with plenty of motivation and energy after being idle last week. The Texans certainly benefited from facing a Raiders team that had the wind knocked out of them (to say the least) when QB Derek Carr went down to a season-ending injury on Christmas Eve. They won’t be so fortunate this time around.

Defensively, the Texans may hold their own for a while, but it should only be a matter of time before Tom Brady and the Patriots offense break loose. A couple of second half turnovers from the Texans in desperation mode should keep this one from being interesting in the fourth quarter, and may just prove to be the difference between a win and a cover. Take New England (9*).

Sean is an AWESOME 60-44 in NFL action this season and he’s ready to roll with THREE 10* TOP RATED winners on Divisional Weekend, keyed by his Divisional Round Total of the Year! Make sure you’re in on the profits!
