Week 6 NFL Picks: Rams vs. Texans Prediction from Art Aronson: October 13th 2013

Week 6 NFL Picks: October 13th 2013
St. Louis Rams vs. Houston Texans
Prediction: Houston -7

This is a 1* Week 6 NFL pick on the Houston Texans (@1:00PM EST).

The visiting St. Louis Rams sit at 2-3 SU and 1-4 ATS after a 34-20 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars at home last week. Sam Bradford went 19-for-34 for 222 yards and three TD passes. Austin Pettis had two TD receptions with 49 yards receiving while Zac Stacy had 78 yards rushing in the win. The Houston Texans sit at 2-3 SU and 0-4-1 ATS after an embarrassing 34-3 loss on Sunday night to the San Francisco 49ers on the road. Matt Schaub had one of the worst games of his career, throwing three interceptions to zero touchdowns while completing 19-of-35 passes. Arian Foster had 98 yards on 21 carries and was pretty much the only chain moving member of the Texans offense. Neither of these teams has performed the way it has wanted early in this season. While the Texans where embarrassed on Sunday Night I feel it was somewhat predictable (I went against them) seeing as the team could easily suffer a letdown after last weeks’ white knuckle loss to the Seahawks. This Texans teams performs much better at home and I expect it to bounce back here and get a win it needs in the worst way to right the ship. The Texans are still 12-7 ATS at home the past three years and now face a team in the Rams who have not played well on the road this season. St. Louis is 0-2 ATS on the road this season and 1-3 ATS as an underdog on the road the spread falls in and around the seven number. Yes the Rams got a win last week but we have to remember it was against the Jaguars and not get too excited. Consider laying the points with Houston.
