These two teams are among the top contenders in their respective conferences, although you wouldn’t know it judging by the money on offer.
The Texans, who finished last season 5-3 on the road, have won two of their last three games over the Saints, although you do have to rewind all the way back to 2015 to find their last meeting.
Monday Night Football is reserved for the NFL’s top contenders, and while both sides are the current favourites to win their divisions, don’t be surprised if this one turns into a Saints blowout.
The Texans chances of winning the AFC South for the second season in a row increased dramatically following Andrew Luck’s retirement, but on the same night, Houston also lost running back Lamar Miller to a season-ending ACL injury.
Miller isn’t the flashiest runner in the NFL, but he did help the Texans finish eighth in rushing last year. In his place, Duke Johnson and Carlos Hyde will try and fill the void, but with a spotty offensive line that is yet to improve, the Saints defence could be in for a feast.
Houston led the league in sacks allowed last year, as Deshaun Watson hit the turf 62 times. The Saints pass rush, meanwhile, accounted for the sixth-most sacks in the league, which spells disaster for the Texans on Tuesday.
Tip: New Orleans Saints at $1.33
Value Tip: First Try Scorer: Michael Thomas at $8.00
