Houston Texans @ Cleveland Browns Free Pick
Play On: Texas Texans +3.5.
This line does not look right with the Browns fresh off their Thursday night beat down now going back home to face a Texans team starting a QB for the first time. However, I am not confident in this Browns team they have gotten very lucky in games and they did play their best game of the season on Thursday night on the road against the Bengals. However, I see them coming back down to life after being so high from the victory on Thursday.
Plus the Texans start Ryan Mallet who I think has much better talent than Ryan Fitzpatrick. Mallet was a stud in college in the pocket and was behind one of the best QB’s in the league for years in Tom Brady. Mallett should not have to do it on his own either as the Browns struggle defending the run. It’s not like the Browns have beaten many good teams with wins vs. the Raiders, Titans, Bucs, Oakland and they got beat by the Jaguars 24-6.
I have to look at this team’s season work instead of just 1 big win on the road and I think we have value on the Texans at +3.5.
