Hous­ton over NEW ENG­LAND by 3

Playbook Football (Midweek Alert) - - Page 12 Www.playbook.com 1.800.playbook -

Ladies and gents, in the red cor­ner it’s the light­weight, 4-win Tex­ans from Hous­ton. And in the blue cor­ner it’s the al­ways-feared New Eng­land Pa­tri­ots. And as Marc’s Against The Spread pod­cast – which de­buts for the sea­son this week at Mar­cLawrenceRa­dio.com – says at the be­gin­ning of each show, “Let’s get it on!” The wal­lop that the Pats once packed fig­ures to be light­ened this sea­son now that they carry the la­bel of ‘Su­per Bowl loser’ around with them. And don’t dis­count that no­tion as Marc points out in his weekly col­umn in the USA TO­DAY SPORTS WEEKLY that Su­per Bowl losers are just in sea­son-open­ing games since 2001. Hous­ton comes in with a 5-1 ATS log in the first of con­sec­u­tive road games and is 7-2 SU the last nine years in ini­tial road games. Thus, we won’t be at all sur­prised to find the Brady bunch drop to 1-5 ATS in their last six home open­ers when they take on the De­shaun Wat­son-led Tex­ans. A solid take in this all-out leather fly­ing stand­ing 8-count.
