Bengals vs Texans Free Pick

January 05, 2013

AFC wildcard weekend starts in Houston today with the Houston Texans taking on the Cincinnati Bengals. Houston started their season on fire and was coasting along with a 12-2 record until they lost two straight to end the season. The two defeats dropped the Texans behind both Denver and New England in the AFC standings and forced them to play during wildcard weekend without a bye week.

The Texans come into the game 12-4 SU while they are 9-6-1 ATS. Cincinnati on the other hand surged into the playoffs winning 7 of their last 8 games of the regular season including two victories in the last two games of the season against Pittsburgh and Baltimore. 

Last season the two teams met in the playoffs and Houston walked away with a 31-10 victory playing without starting quarterback Matt Schaub who was injured. In that game, Cincinnati’s quarterback Andy Dalton tosses three interceptions. Cincinnati will get a chance for revenge tonight to try to break a postseason losing streak that stretches back 23 years.

Even though the Texans slipped late in the season, they still finished no. 7 in the league in both total defense and total offense. On offense, the trio of quarterback Schaub, running back Arian Foster and wide receiver Andre Johnson leads Houston. On defense, J.J. Watt is one of the best pass rushers in all of football.

Cincinnati won seven of their last eight thanks to their defense. During their last eight games, the defense has not allowed more than 20 points in any one of the games and is allowing only an average of 12.7 points during that second half stretch.

Offensively the Bengals once again count on the signal calling of Dalton and his favorite target A.J. Green, who caught 97 passes this season, with 11 going for touchdowns.

The line currently has the Texans favored by 4 ½ points with the total resting at 43 ½. Take Houston less the points and the UNDER to make winners of the point total.
