Falcons vs. Texans: NFL Week 5 Picks & Game PredictionsCat:未分類
When the Falcons travel to Houston to take to the Texans (1:00 P.M ET, FOX) theyll be hoping to eventually locate a little consistency. The Falcons are 26th in the league in points per match, despite having a good deal of very talented offensive players. They can not appear to get the run game going and Matt Ryan has not had time to throw. Last week at home against the Titans, Ryan was sacked 4 timeshit the next 4 and dashed 12 times. The Falcons will need to do a better job protecting him.
As for the Texans, shielding Deshaun Watson is something theyve never really been able to do since he has come into the NFL. While hes a talented player, he requires a good deal of abuse. Against Carolina, he was sacked 5 times and then dashed 13 times. The ball did run but Watson just threw for no death touchdowns and 160 yards.
Watson also must quit holding the ball for so long. He knows his line isnt very good yet he tends to carry on to the ball for much longer than he needs to. Not only does this lead to sacks, but hes also leaving himself vulnerable to punishment. That is something he needs to address until another long term injury is suffered by him as his game matures.
This line started with the total in 49 at Texans -5. There has not been much movement with 58% of the money on Houston. Both groups have been up and down that it is hard to know whats going to happen in this one. The total might be the play here as both groups dont really have a means to stop every other and can put up points. On the flip side, 10 points were scored by both teams on Sunday. Right now, you dont know what you are getting on a weekly basis with these two. Laying 5 points together with the Texans against any team seems like a lot. The Falcons have the offensive firepower.
Beneath 49 (-105) in 5Dimes
Both of these teams are shrouded which will be the case. While they have the firepower to put up big points, things havent been clicking for either offense. I see both teams return to fundamentals here. For each these reasons, my choice for this is the Beneath 49.
