The Houston Texans have lost 5 of their last 6 road games. Kyle Allen is completing 59 percent of his passes for 416 yards, 2 touchdowns and 4 interceptions.

The Texans are 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Cowboys are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 home games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall. The under is 4-0 in Texans last 4 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Cowboys last 5 games overall. The underdog is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

On paper, the Dallas Cowboys should blow the doors off here as they’re a Super Bowl contender and the Texans are tanking and piling up the losses. However, the Houston Texans still play hard and compete, and 9 of their 10 losses this season have been decided by 15 or fewer points. Five of those losses have been decided by single digits. The Texans don’t do anything well, and that run defense is ridiculously bad, but they find ways to hang around. Give me the boatload of points.
