If the Texans are going to win on Saturday, they are going to have to run the ball. Plain and simple. The Bills have been stout all year at stopping the pass, but have been vulnerable on the ground. When we look at the Texans, they have had the most success when Watson has taken off and run. In 6 of the Texans last 8 wins, Watson ran for over 30 yards in those games, including 37 yards against the Bucs two weeks ago on a hobbled ankle. The Texans will work the run game today, using both Carlos Hyde and Deschaun Watson early and often. The Bill do rank No. 10 in the NFL stopping the run, but have given up big games to running quarterbacks, including Lamar Jackson who found some success on the ground in Buffalo. I really like the over on Watson’s total yards on the ground. I don’t think it will go way over, but it will be enough to cash in a ticket.
Prediction: Watson 8 rushes, 33 yards
Julian Edelman OVER 64.5 yards receiving
FanDuel Sportsbook Odds: Edelman OVER 64.5 yards receiving
DraftKings Sportsbook Odds: Edelman OVER 64.5 yards receiving
I didn’t pick the Patriots game this week but I will add that I love the money line for them. I’m a little cautious with the spread given the uncertainty in the weather and because I think the Patriots will play a smart, well-controlled game which could result in a 4-point victory. I lean the Pats and the points, but just don’t have the confidence to pull the trigger, but will add that I like the money line if you have the juice to lay it. That said, this promises to be a redemption game for Tom Brady, and expect Julian Edelman to play a big role in it. The Titans do have a weakness against the pass, particularly against No. 1 receivers; case in point, Michael Thomas two weeks ago who torched the Titans pass defense. While I think the Patriots lean a lot on the run, they will use their rushing success to set up play-action to Edelman. The concern many have is that Edelman catches too many short passes, but Brady will spread this Titans defense out more tonight and Edelman is prone to make the big play. He will tonight and will go easily over this total. I like Edelman over 64.5 yards receiving.
Prediction: Edelman 9 catches, 93 yards, 1 TD
