Betting market: The public is fed up with the Texans, who have failed to cover this season. They got 80% of bets in Tennessee two weeks ago and 55% of bets at home against the Giants last week.
This week, the Texans are getting only 36% of bets as a small dog in Indy as of this writing (see live data here). This line did a lot of moving in the first 24 hours after opening, but has remained rather calm over the past couple days. — Mark Gallant
Trends to know: Don’t sleep on the 0-3 Texans. According to our Bet Labs data (since 2003), teams that are winless have gone 36-23-1 against the spread in Week 4, including 15-6-1 ATS when playing a division rival. — John Ewing
Andrew Luck is 17-6-2 ATS (+10.6 units) against divisional opponents, covering the spread by 5.8 points per game.
No quarterback is more profitable ATS vs. divisional opponents than Luck since he was drafted first overall in 2012.
When Luck and the Colts enter a divisional game coming off a straight-up loss, Indy is 9-0 SU and 7-2 ATS, covering the spread by 7.5 points per game. — Evan Abrams
