The NFL season carries on with Week 10 games on Sunday, November 13, when we have this inter-conference tilt, and here you can read the best Texans vs. Giants betting pick and odds.
Houston is looking to avoid the fourth consecutive loss when they visit New York at MetLife Stadium. The Giants are 5-point favorites on PointsBet NY Sportsbook, while the total is set at 40.5 points. These inter-conference rivals will meet for the first time since 2018.
Texans couldn’t make a surprise against Philadelphia
The Houston Texans (1-6-1, 4-3-1 ATS) suffered the third loss in a row, and this time they lost to the only unbeaten team in the NFL at home. Houston played well in the first half and had an active 14-14 result at halftime, but the Philadelphia Eagles limited them to just three points in the second 30 points to get a 29-17 win and improve to an 8-0 record.
Davis Mills completed 13 of 22 passes for 154 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. Dameon Pierce had the best game of his young career as he registered a career-high 139 rushing yards on 217 attempts. Phillip Dorsett led the team in receiving yards with 69 on three catches, but Chris Moore and Teagan Quitoriano were the ones who found the end zone through the air. Jerry Hughes had a strong game on defense with two sacks, while Jonathan Owens chipped in game-high ten tackles.
WR Nico Collins (groin) is out indefinitely. WR Brandin Cooks missed the last game with a wrist injury and is unhappy with his current contract, and it is unknown if he will be active for Sunday’s clash against the Giants. DT Maliek Collins (chest) is questionable.
Giants are ready to return to winning ways
The New York Giants (6-2-0, 6-2-0 ATS) were on a four-game winning streak before suffering a 27-13 road defeat to the Seattle Seahawks. They were on a bye week and will be well-rested and ready to return to winning ways against Houston on Sunday. The Giants set season-worst in both points scored (season-low) and allowed (season-high) in that loss in Seattle.
Daniel Jones completed 17 of 31 passes for 176 yards. Saquon Barkley scored a rushing touchdown and finished the tilt with 53 yards on 20 carries, his weakest display of the campaign. Through the air, Darius Slayton and Tanner Hudson combined for 124 yards on eight receptions. New York had three defenders with eight tackles, who led the team: Tomon Fox, Julian Love, and Leonard Williams.
WR Sterling Shepard (ACL), TE Daniel Bellinger (eye), LB Azeez Ojulari (calf), and T Evan Neal (MCL) are out and will not feature on Sunday against Houston. WR Richie James Jr. (concussion) and WR Kenny Golladay (knee) are questionable.
- 7-17-2 ATS in the last 26 games following an ATS win
- 1-5 ATS in the last six games following a double-digit loss at home
- 4-1 ATS in the last five games overall
- 19-8-1 ATS in the last 28 games vs. a team with a losing record
Houston Texans vs. New York Giants Pick
The Giants are better than the Texans in every key segment of the game except for pass offense. New York is consciously neglecting pass offense, which isn’t strange considering they have such a running back as Saquon Barkley and a QB who can run successfully.
The Texans are scoring just 16.6 points per game, which is the 28th offense in the NFL, and I don’t think they have a quality to hurt New York’s defense which is allowing 19.6 ppg and is among the top 10. I am backing Barkley and Jones to combine for 150+ rushing yards in this one and bring a win to their team.
Sports Betting Pick: Take the Giants at -5 (-110)
Houston has the worst run defense in the league that is allowing 180.6 yards per game to their rivals, while New York is averaging 161.5 rushing yards per contest. The hosts will control the possession and game clock, and that in the mix with Houston’s inability to move the chains and score touchdowns is making me go with a low-scoring affair. Under is 8-3 in the Texans’ last 11 road games; Under is 7-3 in Houston’s previous ten games following an ATS win, while Under is 16-4-1 in the Giants’ last 21 games following an ATS loss.
Pick: Go Under 43.5 points (-135)
