Week 1 NFL picks for Texans vs. Colts

Before you tune into Sunday’s Colts vs. Texans game, you need to check out SportsLine’s advanced computer model NFL picks. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has won over $7,500 for $100 players with top-tier NFL picks since its inception. The model kicks off the 2022 NFL season with an incredible 138-97 run of top-flight NFL picks, stretching back to the 2017 season. Amazingly, it hasn’t missed out on a top-flight pick since week 15 of last season.

The model has also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch for four of the last six years in direct NFL picks, beating more than 94% of CBS Sports football pick ’em players four times in that span. Whoever followed it is way up.

For Colts vs. Texans, the model supports Indianapolis to cover. It’s the widest NFL spread at Caesars on the Week 1 NFL schedule, and it’s somewhat unusual for a road team to score that many points.

But that speaks to the talent Indianapolis has when it comes to rebuilding the Houston team. The Colts are bringing back reigning rushing champion Jonathan Taylor to the backfield, who has the advantage of running behind one of the best offensive lines in the league. Ryan, meanwhile, has a chance to bring the stability the Colts have lacked at quarterback in recent years.

Houston, on the other hand, went just 4-13 in 2021. The model reckons the Texans, who finished 30th on offense last season, will struggle to move the ball against a Colts defense that failed last year ranked among the top 10. Houston only scores 18 points in the simulations, helping Indianapolis cover almost 60% of the time.
