NFL Betting Odds: Texans @ Saints Free Pick
Houston followed up a 34-7 home opening blitz of the Indianapolis Colts, sans Peyton Manning, with a 23-13 win on the road over the Miami Dolphins in Week Two.
Sufficiently recovered from their Week One grapple in Green Bay (42-34 Packers), the Saints marched all over the Bears to the tune of 30-13 in Week Two action.
Back-to-back road NFL games are never easy but the Texans are comparable, if not better than the Saints, on both side of the ball. We like Houston in a Texas style shootout in this one.
NFL Free Pick: Falcons @ Buccaneers Wagering Lines
After getting blown out by a bad Bears team in Week One, the Falcons rebounded with the stirring 35-31 come from behind win on Sunday Night Football against the Eagles.
Tampa Bay got over on a horrible Vikings squad as they scored 24 second half points to win 24-20 last weekend. The Bucs lost their home opener 27-20 to the upstart Detroit Lions in Week One.
Neither of these teams have been very impressive on defense, Atlanta has the better offense, and the Falcons have won the last five games in this series.
