Houston Texans vs. New York Jets: Best Prop Bets

Prop bets for Houston Texans vs. New York Jets

NFL: New York Jets at Houston Texans Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Texans (-3.5) can continue their upstart run for playoff contention this Sunday when they travel to the Big Apple (actually New Jersey) to face the New York Jets (+3.5).

Here are some of the best prop picks from our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook:

NICO COLLINS THE FIRST TOUCHDOWN SCORER (+600)

The combination of Texan’s quarterback C.J. Stroud - currently the league leader in air yards, and the unfortunate loss of rookie wide out Tank Dell in last week’s outing, means Nico Collins is primed to catch the first touchdown of the game.

HOUSTON TEXANS FIRST TEAM TO TAKE AN OFFENSIVE SNAP IN THE OPPONENT’S RED ZONE (-135)

No matter who wins the coin toss, the Texans defense is fully capable of shutting the Jets offense out of the red zone for most of the game. The Jets D can’t say the same.

HOUSTON TEXANS TOTAL POINTS OVER 21.5 (+170)

The Texans’ offense is averaging 23.4 points per game this season, while the New York defense is surrendering 20.9 average. Expect Houston to up their average this week against the 4-8 Jets.

C.J. STROUD PASS YARDS OVER 250+ (+225)

Stroud threw for for 274 yards last Sunday, which was his 8th game this season with 250+ pass yards. That tied him for 2nd-most ever by a rookie quarterback. He’ll get 1st place this Sunday.

Unless you live in New Jersey and bet with your heart, you know the smart money this Sunday is all about the Battle Red and the on-fire rookie quarterback.
