With 70% of the public on Indy ........... this just doesn't make sense. both of these teams are going to be 8-8 when the season's done. Give me the home team getting 3. Again, this just makes no sense, 70% of the pub on the road fav here, what am I missing?

Got this at -2.5.  Haven't checked the # of Home dogs on Thursday nights this year, but this might be the first. (?) 

My initial play is INDY -2.5. 

Houston has a D that should keep this one close and low. 

Good play... 6 pt. teaser with Houston and Under.  GL this week everybody.

Home dog just missed on Monday night. I don't look at how many covered on whatever day in particular. Books will need road dog for the cover. I'll side with them. Texans D is good, and JJ W is gonna be up Lucky boys rear all night. Arian Foster is going to run all over Indy. 
 

HOUSTON +3

Luck is not consistent enough. He is my favorite player in the league and I see him throwing 1-2 picks against that Houston D. I see Houston winning 17-13.

Indy has put up a lot of points so far this year.  A lot of that has been against sub par competition though; Philly, Jacksonville and Tennessee.  They put up points end of the game against Denver, nothing to get credit for.  Ryan Fitzpatrick is the QB for the Texans.  Leaning towards the under.

Houston may have a scrappy D but I look to those games vs the Raiders & the Giants...and coming off a OT loss to the boys?

Indy on a roll.  Beat a good ravens team. Yes they are good.  Caan only lay $$ with Fitz when he plays the raiders.

Houston is limping into this game.

Colts is the play. no trap. they win by 5+

As much as I like the homedogs.. I'm going to have to go with the better team and that's the Colts. Yeah I know, the short week favors the home team blah blah but a bad team will be bad home field or not. Not saying the Texans are bad but they are nowhere as good as their 3-2 record suggests. If anything, the short week hurts the Texans a little bit more after playing half an overtime game.

Houston defense gives up more yardage on passes and runs than the Colts do and they played average offensive teams while Colts have played against offensive powerhouses. The Texans have the 25th ranked total defense and the Colts come in their house with the #2 ranked offense

I think Houston will keep it reasonably close but not by much. Arian Foster will be a big factor and Texans defense gets a few turnovers. It's still a division game after all and Texans have recently played Colts tough at home the last 5 years.

But just like on Monday night, I'm taking the better team on a short week

Colts win by 4-6 points, score: 27-23

Colts -3 and Over!!

I like Houston +3 they are undefeated at home. The colts O looked unimpressive at home vs vs Baltimore. I know the counter argument is ravens play good D but colts should have beat the hell out of them cause joe flacco turned into joe fluco in Indy. I also think colts D hasn't  been exposed yet. No Landry , no Mathis, and I think they cut someone else last week for disciplinary reasons. Fitzpatty is the only thing that makes me nervous but I think foster makes enough plays to mask his deficiencies

LMFAO hou comes limping in . Whos gonna stop Foster ??? Indy Def sucks. Balt off is avg and always has been since joe Is there. Indy hasn't played anyone except den who is know for back door covers.  Indy team is banged and has no def. Hou Def bends but doesn't break. Follow the juice and play hou. Div games are close and tough and ill go with the better team and def to win games. Hou has won two close games with there def and indy has blown one @ home.  This isn't the same indy team from last year or year b4 think now not in the past

Hou +3 and sprinkle ML

Short week, Houston travelled from Houston, to Dallas, to Houston, and they lost. Why should I pick the Colts? Andy Luck? That's it? The guy has to lose some of the games some of the time, he's not Jesus "walking on water".....

I say Texans straight up. Dallas misses that FG last week, would the line be for the home dogs??? NO.............

Texans, keep your 3 points, not gonna need 'em........

Thats right snortches. where EZ cheese at? Lets go!! Hou will sneak this one out. Luck has been money but every few games he starts set tripping..Although FitzPICKtrick is Jake DelommeSHAUB JR but Watt will punch Luck in the face!!!

What did the 5 fingers say to the face?

HOU and what did you think I would say..... and OV for the LAHHHHHHHGE

I don't put too much stock into ATS trends in deciding matchups unless I'm really split down the middle but they should still be considered and exist for a reason. I just find them interesting,no matter how much changes to personnel or coaches, one team always seems to have the other team's number

Houston is:

2-3 SU, 1-4 ATS, 1-1 as dogs on Thursday

last time they won as a Thursday home dog was back in '07 against the Jay Cutler Broncos...

Indy is:

9-1 SU, 8-1-1 ATS with 8 of those as road favorites on Thursday for a 7-1 RF record

All-time head to head between these two teams

Texans are 4-20 SU, 11-13 ATS, 9-11 as dogs(5-5 home, 4-6 away), the matchups have gone Over the total 17 times(11 in Houston, 6 in Indy)

Thursday night football home dogs are: 10-10 in the last 20 games.

Andrew Luck is 2-0 SU, ATS on Thursday Night( this is first time playing Texans on TNF). last time Indy played Texans on Thurs, they beat them with Dan Orlovsky as QB.

Luck is 3-1 SU, ATS vs Texans.

Anyway, good luck degenerates.

Liked Houston before checking in on what the concesus was in the forum, and now I love Houston. I hope people keep hammering the Colts and drive that number even higher. Home Dog, getting points, stout D, Foster apparently healthy for now. I think it stays close enough for a Texan cover with the possibility of an outright win. If that 3 grows a hook I'm all over Houston getting a field goal with insurance. GL TO ALL.

Went with Indy -2.5, not sold on Houston, that defense isn't as stout as people seem to think, and I think the short week benefits the team that can move the ball through the air, Fitzpatrick has been putrid and I don't think Indy's de has been given enough credit, plus there's a lot of guys banged up on the defensive side in Houston including Brian Cushing who is out and a few defensive back who they will need in this matchup, JJ Watt can't do it himself every game, if this was played on a Sunday I would probably stay away but coming off an overtime loss (and I hate when people say it was a tough loss, no they blew it) and then having to prepare for Indy before they can even shake it off while Indy is rolling coming off 3 straight wins and pretty much better in all facets right now, it's Indy or no play and I really like this spot for Indy

How does any of this nonsense apply to tomorrow;s game?  I mean seriously?  Every week is different, let alone every year.  How does Manning and Harrison's performance against different houston teams mean d*ck with this years rosters?  Im just trying to help you kids, i did this professionally for years. I also scouted pro ball for 28 years.  Learn football, develop angles, mix in some gut feel, and dont make stupid plays like these idiots who laid 21 points with BYU a couple of weeks ago when they lost straight up. or those who took an unproven perenially choking cinci team with an average qb on the road against new england.  Follow those steps and youll be fine.  And take Indy -2.5 tomorrow.

Seems to me Vegas is welcoming Colts money. I see Colts open at -2.5 and with them being huge public favorites for the line to only move a half point........yeah....
