Two teams entering Week 7 rested from the bye week meet head-to-head as the Las Vegas Raiders host the Houston Texans. The Texans earned their first victory of the season thanks to a 13-6 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5. Rookie Dameon Pierce stepped up with 99 rushing yards.
Meanwhile, the Raiders lost a heartbreaker to the Chiefs in Week 5. Las Vegas held a 10-point lead at halftime before Kansas City mounted an impressive comeback. Running back Josh Jacobs' big day on the ground was wasted. He logged 154 yards and 1 touchdown on 21 carries (7.3-yard average).

Texans vs Raiders Prediction & Pick
While both of these teams are in desperate need of a win, the pressure is on the Raiders here. Las Vegas entered the season as a trendy Super Bowl pick after trading for All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams. A 1-4 start is not what head coach Josh McDaniel had envisioned with this stacked roster.
Lose this game and the road to making the AFC Playoffs becomes much tougher. That's what the Raiders are facing. Look for quarterback Derek Carr to pick apart this Texans' secondary just like he did when he last faced them. Carr went 18-of-30 for 285 yards and 3 touchdowns in that 2019 game.
Final Score Prediction: Texans: 21 | Raiders: 27

Texans vs Raiders Best Bet

Carr may ultimately lead the Raiders to a win here, but bettors can feel comfortable backing the Texans to keep it close. Houston is 6-2-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last nine games and is 4-1 ATS in its last five away games against Las Vegas. This is a team that fights until the final whistle.
Not a single team in the AFC South is separating itself from the rest of the pack, which means Houston still has a lot to play for in the coming weeks. Keep in mind only one of the Texans' three losses on the season came by more than a touchdown.
Bet: Houston Texans +7 (-110)
