The Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks meet in a Sunday in week 14 NFL showdown at NRG Stadium in Nashville. The Seattle Seahawks need a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Houston Texans look to rebound from a rough 2-10 record.

Winning Props Bets

The Houston Texans have lost five straight home games. Tyrod Taylor is completing 60.7 percent of his passes for 966 yards, 5 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Brandin Cooks and Chris Conley have combined for 975 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Nico Collins has 18 receptions. The Houston Texans ground game is averaging 78.8 yards per contest, and David Johnson leads the way with 137 yards on 56 carries. Defensively, Houston is allowing 26.9 points and 379 yards per game. Kamu Grugier-Hill leads the Houston Texans with 88 tackles, Jonathan Greenard has 8 sacks and Lonnie Johnson Jr. has 3 interceptions.

The Seahawks are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite. The Texans are 5-15-2 ATS in their last 22 games in December and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The under is 19-7 in Seahawks last 26 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Texans last 4 games overall.

The Seattle Seahawks aren’t the most trustworthy team in the world, but they need to keep winning if they’re going to sneak into the playoffs, and last week’s win over the 49ers could be a turning point. The Houston Texans continue to lose and fail to cover numbers despite being big underdogs weekly. The Texans have also been held to nine or fewer points in six of their last 10 games. It’s tough to side with the Texans, regardless of what the spread is. Give me the Seahawks.
