    Call me crazy, but I'm taking the Colts

    Laying only 3 against a winless Texans team, yes it's on the road, but Houston has some high schoolers for defensive backs and Manning's center is in the lineup.

    Colts probably roll here IMO.

    I'm with you on this one, Indy is 3 points better than Houston, and they are coming off a bye. I can see the other side however, the last time a team came back from a hurricane, their frist home game was a total blow out, and Houston usually covers against Indy. Usually Indy is favored by 7 or more so this time I think Indy covers, and Peyton gets back in the groove that he is used too.

    Hope it hits for you - I'm fading myself and taking the Colts, also. I just have a feeling about the Texans, so it's no duh to costanza this game.

    Yea, I can't see the Colts losing to the Texans here. As most teams usually do, I look for the Colts to get back into gear against the hapless Texans.

    I think Houston wins BIG! Just like you said its usually 7 with the colts and its only 3. Seems way to easy to take the colts doesn't it. Just read my Signature....

    You guys keep thinking the Colts are the Colts of last year. Houston is the best winless team in the league, coming off an overtime loss with the Jags in Jacksonville. The same Jag team that beat the Colts in Indianapolis the week before. The Colts have only won a game so far, why would they be the sure fire thing here, on the road, no less? I'm not touching this game, so good luck to all of you, but I think the spread is right were it needs to be. Houston has earned that much respect...even without winning a game.

    You are right Panic; in that the Texans are no doubt the best winless team in the league. They have a habit of beating themselves, but they are not as bad as some make them out to be. The Colts do not appear to be anything of themselves last year or the year before. That said; they are the superior team in this matchup. Anytime you have a Manning at the helm, you have a chance to win. Not sure the same can be said about the Schaubs. lol

    Outside of a miraculous comeback win against the Vikings...the Colts should be winless as well. Dont like this game at all. But, Good Luck with it. I hope it hits for all of you.

    You know what I forgot all about; this is going to be a very emotional game for the Texans and their fans. A win for that city would be huge! This may or may not be a factor in this game but it is worth noting.

    Looking good, Bread. And this is with Houston's starting QB out. Colts suck.

    I hope Robert Irsay realizes that Indy fans aren't like Cleveland/KC/Oakland fans that will pay ridiculous NFL prices to sit and watch shit football....we're not that stupid! That new stadium will be a ghost town!
