Commanders vs Texans Prediction & Pick

The legend of quarterback Taylor Heinicke continues to grow in Washington. The 29-year-old has now guided the Commanders to wins in three of the last four weeks and put the team right back into position to compete in the NFC. He may not have to do very much to earn another victory on Sunday.

The Texans have posted the second-worst rush defense DVOA rating in the NFL and have allowed a whopping 5.2 yards per carry on the year (No. 29 in NFL). They have also given up a league-high 13 rushing touchdowns to opposing running backs. Antonio Gibson and Brian Robinson will feast here.

Final Score Prediction: Commanders: 21 | Texans: 17

Commanders vs Texans Best Bet

The value lies in the point total for this cross conference matchup. Each of these teams rank outside the top 20 in both yards and points per game. Washington earned a victory last week due to the fact that they possessed the ball for over 40 minutes. Expect a similar strategy to be employed here, too.

The under has cashed in six of the Commanders' last eight games as well as in four of Houston's last five games played in November. The Texans have scored over 20 points just once this season and have only given up more than 24 points three times. This one has low-scoring battle written all over it.

Bet: Under 40.5 Points (-112)
