In AFC Wild Card Game, we will see Buffalo Bills at Houston Texans.
The Buffalo Bills had a great campaign that no one expected them to have. They finished 10-6 mainly because of their superb form earlier this season. They started 5-1 but they are 5-5 since then, including an ongoing 2-game losing streak. Outside of beating the Cowboys and the Steelers, the Bills do not have any other prestigeous wins. QB Josh Allen had a good season overall but he has his limitations. QB Josh Allen completes 59% of his passes for 3089 yards, 20 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. RB Devin Singletary and Frank Gore provide a great rushing game, combining for 1374 yards and 4 touchdowns.
On the other side, we have the Houston Texans who are not well coached at all. The offensive line continues to struggle and we can often see Deshaun Watson running for his life. The defense is respectable but it is very inconsistent and it is not a coincidence that the QB needs to rescue the team. Watson is completing 67% of his throws for 3852 yards, 26 touchdowns and 12 interceptions with Carlos Hyde, providing a great ground game. The running back has rushed for 1070 yards and 6 touchdowns so far this season.
The Texans have the more playmakers on offense. I believe that there will not be many points scored this time but Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins are capable of making a few plays that can win them the game.
Pick: Houston Texans -2½ (-110) Spread at
