NFL | Patriots vs. Texans

Prediction – New England Patriots -15.5

Betting Trends

 

Patriots: 13-3 ATS Overall / 6-2 ATS @ Home

Texans: 7-9 ATS Overall / 2-5 ATS on the Road

Patriots: 24-9-2 ATS In their Last 35 Home Games

Texans: 0-4 ATS Last 4 Games In New England

That being said double digit points against the spread is a difficult number to overcome but if there is any team that can do it is the Patriots who picked up seven wins of more than 14 points during the regular season.

Cowboys: 10-6 ATS Overall / 5-3 ATS @ Home
Packers: 1-5 ATS Last 5 Games In Dallas
Cowboys: 3-7 ATS In There Last 10 Playoff Games

Prediction – Green Bay Packers + 5.5

In the end the Cowboys should be able to find a way to pull this win out but covering the 5.5 point spread could be difficult. Especially in this contest against a Packers offense that is clicking on all cylinders including the play from Aaron Rodgers to help lead the team to six straight wins to take home the NFC North Crown. During the regular season in the Packers six losses the team only lost by more than 5.5 points in three of those games.  The shootout in Big D on Sunday could come down to the team with the ball on the final drive of the game.
