While most fans, reporters and bettors were focusing on Monday Night’s Pittsburgh Steelers-Tampa Bay Buccaneers matchup, professionals were quietly jumping on the Houston Texans-Indianapolis Colts Week 4 game.

The Colts opened as 2.5-point home favorites and, according to The Action Network’s public betting data, 68% of tickets and 74% of dollars wagered on the spread have come in on Indy.

Interestingly, the line has moved down to -1.5 at BookMaker and -1 at Pinnacle, suggesting that respected bettors are actually playing the 0-3 Texans.

Sports Insights’ Bet Signals, which track sharp action across the live sports betting market, have already triggered three Reverse Line Moves and one Steam Move on Houston.

With recreational bettors laying the short price with the Colts and professionals grabbing the road underdogs, this matchup is setting up as a classic sharps vs. public showdown.
