Texans vs. Packers TV Coverage: CBS
The Texans are definitely considered the worst 6-5 team in the NFL. They have a bad offense that ranks 29th in the league averaging just over 17 points per game. They have a quarterback in Brock Osweiler who simply isn’t worth the money the Texans spent on him in the off-season. What has saved the Texans this season is a defense that is 5th in the league in total yards allowed.
Houston is 5-5-1 ATS this season but most of that success has come at home as the Texans are 1-4 ATS on the road. They have gone over in three of their five road games this season.
The Packers are coming off a big win last week at Philadelphia to keep their playoff hopes alive. If they can win this game on Sunday they would get back to .500 and possibly get within a game of Detroit if the Lions lose at New Orleans.
The Packers are scoring about 25 points per game and allowing 26 points per contest. Green Bay is 5-5-1 ATS this season including 2-2-1 ATS at home. Three of their five home games have gone under.
This is only the fourth matchup between the two franchises with Green Bay holding a 2-1 edge. It was Green Bay winning 42-24 four years ago in Houston. The Packers have won 8 of their last 13 games following a Monday night contest. Green Bay has scored 23 points or more in eight of their last nine games.
The Packers have won six of their last eight games in December. Under head coach Mike McCarthy, the Packers are 29-13 in the month of December. The Packers are 18-3 at home in December under McCarthy.
The Texans are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games. The Packers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in Week 13.
The Under is 8-3 in the Texans last 11 games in December. The Under is 9-2 in the Packers last 11 home games.

It is hard to take the Texans on the road with Osweiler at quarterback so I will lay the points and take Green Bay in this contest.
