Get ready for an AFC South battle.

Bob Levey

The trend has been to see Thursday night blowouts. Games have been decided by an average of 29 points, with only one road team winning in five games.

Tonight Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts battle the Houston Texans in Houston tonight.

Who will get the win?

Here is what our staff thinks -- all but a couple of us have Luck winning again.

In terms of against the spread, Indy is a road favorite, -3. Luck is 5-1-1 ATS as a road favorite, but the home team usually gets the not on a short week. Houston's defense is tough and Indy's run defense is not great. As you can see in the straight up picks, I have Houston winning outright. Clearly, I pick them to cover as well.

Who is your pick for the night? Are you watching any player in particular? What about fantasy football? Are you watching for your team?
