The Houston Texans will travel across the country to face off with the San Francisco 49ers in Week 17 from Santa Clara, California.
Houston has won their last two games with Davis Mills behind center and have built some momentum for next season.
San Francisco couldn’t hold onto a halftime lead and were beaten on Thursday Night in Nashville.
Houston has doubled their win total over the last two weeks with wins over the Jaguars and Chargers. Houston still owns #3 pick in the upcoming draft due to tiebreakers over the Jets and Giants.
The Texans were double digit underdogs at home last week but pulled off a shocking 41-29 victory over the Los Angeles Chargers. It was a remarkable effort for a team ravaged with missing players on the COVID list including leading target Brandon Cooks.
Rookie QB Davis Mills had the best game of his season with a lack of talent around him. Mills finished 21/27 passing for 254 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Rex Burkhead turned back the clock and led the Texans backfield with a team high 22 carries for 149 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Houston has a tough final pair of games against the 49ers and Titans. If they lose both they’ll hold onto the #3 overall selection.
San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco were winners of back to back games but dropped their Thursday Night game in Nashville. The 49ers were unable to hold onto a 10-0 halftime lead and fell 20-17 on a GW field goal against the Tennessee Titans.
It was another inconsistent performance by Jimmy Garoppolo as the QB finished 26/35 passing with a touchdown and pair of interceptions. Deebo Samuel was the main target once again as the third year receiver finished with team high 9 receptions for 159 yards.
Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a torn UCL as well as a fracture in his right thumb which has his status for Sunday uncertain. If he is unable to play the 49ers will turn to rookie Trey Lance once again.
San Francisco is currently the 6 seed in the NFC Playoffs due to a tiebreaker over the 7 seed Eagles. The 49ers last two games are against the Texans and Rams so if they win both they’ll stay the 6 seed.
NFL Betting Trends:
- Texans are 7-8 ATS this season

- 49ers O/U are 7-7-1 this season
4* Free Week 17 NFL Betting Prediction: Texans +12.5 & UNDER
Houston is playing their best ball of the season despite being in a tight race for a top draft position. San Francisco is firmly in the NFC playoff picture despite dropping their last game.
The Texans are double digit underdogs again despite winning outright with a similar spread last week. The 49ers just covered a big spread a few weeks ago at home against the Falcons but that’s not the common case as they are just 3-4 ATS and SU at home this season.
This is a large number for the 49ers to cover especially with QB uncertainty. They’ll bounce back with a win here but I think they’ll fall just short of the spread.
Take Houston and the UNDER as neither team likes to air it out and prefers the ground game.
