A divisional rivalry that has been dominated by one side will be renewed on Sunday as the Indianapolis Colts host the Houston Texans. Both squads are 1-4, but Indy has a 30-9 all-time record against its AFC South foe, with wins in five of the last six meetings. Even though the all-time series is lopsided, most games have been competitive. Thirteen of the last 14 regular-season games between the two have been decided by seven or fewer points.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. ET from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The Colts are 10-point favorites according to Caesars Sportsbook in the latest Texans vs. Colts odds. The over-under for total points scored is 43, which is the lowest in Week 6. In select markets, Sunday’s matchup can be seen live on CBS and streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

Week 6 NFL picks for Colts vs. Texans

Before you tune in to Sunday’s Texans vs. Colts game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,900 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. It went a sizzling 24-14 on top-rated NFL picks last season, returning more than $800. The model also enters Week 6 of the 2021 season on an incredible 125-83 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

For Colts vs. Texans, the model is backing the Over to hit in nearly 60 percent of simulations. SportsLine’s model projects the teams to combine for 48 points.

While neither team possesses a potent offense, both have porous defenses that rank among the bottom 10 in points allowed. Despite the teams combining for just two wins, they’ve hit the over a total of six times this season, so their games are more high-scoring than expected.

Houston quarterback Davis Mills had the best game of his career with three TDs and no turnovers against the Patriots‘ fifth-ranked defense last week. Now, he faces a Colts team coming off a short week and with heavy legs since it played an overtime game on Monday. Additionally, Indianapolis had two defensive backs enter the concussion protocol this week, so Mills will face a depleted secondary.

Colts quarterback Carson Wentz is also coming off the best game of his season, as he shredded the Ravens for over 400 yards. Houston’s defense should be much less of a deterrent as both QBs should continue their solid play. The model has Wentz and Mills combining for at least three passing touchdowns with Indy’s rushing attack also finding the end zone. Those are big reasons why the SportsLine model has Colts vs. Texans hitting the Over with points to spare.
