"NFL Picks, Predictions,
  Point Spreads & Odds"

When it comes to making NFL picks most pro football handicappers & sports betting experts get stuffed at the goal line, because they use NFL gambling info & NFL betting stats already factored into Las Vegas pro football lines when determining their NFL football picks & predictions each week...

FootballLOCKS.com has a different system for making NFL betting picks. We use our innovative Backwards Odds Handicapping of Las Vegas NFL odds & NFL point spreads to seek indications in the weekly NFL line as to which teams Las Vegas sports odds makers may think have an edge to cover the spread.

If you place NFL bets or gamble in a football pool, see if your NFL wagering success increases with a bet on FootballLOCKS.com's NFL expert picks & predictions... While the full card of week to week NFL game picks aren't 100% free NFL picks, we think you'll see by our subscription options that you're practically getting our NFL selections on the house.

Houston Texans 2007 NFL Projection:
The Houston Texans enter the 2007 season coming off a (6-10) campaign, in which the team scored the 4th fewest points in the NFL. Overall the Texans scored 99 fewer points than surrendered by the defense.

With such numbers it was a bit surprising the Texans managed to hit the 6 win mark, thanks to an unlikely sweeping of the Jaguars, a win over the champs in week 16, in which the Texans took advantage of the Colts' porous run defense (not to mention the Colts had the division locked up), a narrow win over Miami, a win versus Cleveland, and a win at Oakland.

With new QB Matt Schaub, can the Texans improve upon their 2006 season?

While we think highly of Schaub (who could forget his fill-in performance versus New England in October of 2005), we're not of the opinion that quarterback was the major need area for this Houston team.

In Houston, Matt Schaub will find an offensive line that hasn't exactly been lighting it up. As a result, Schaub is likely to endure a high level of pressure from opposing defenses, a-la Carr.

At least Schaub will have Ahman Green to hand the ball off to. However, if there aren't many holes opened by the offensive line, Green won't have an easy go.

On the defensive side of the ball, Houston wasn't very formidable in 2006. Granted the Texans' defense played much better during the second half of the season. But also drew several offensively challenged teams including; Cleveland, Oakland, Buffalo, Tennessee (twice), the Giants without Plaxico Burress, even the Jets could be considered as borderline.

In 2007 we believe the probability of the Texans sweeping the Jaguars is essentially nil, and likely to go the other way. We also doubt the Texans will repeat 2006's late season win versus the Colts... And the Dolphins look much improved. The potential is great to lose those four wins from 2006 to 2007.

This season the Texans' schedule is as tough as ever, with game after game against either a playoff caliber team, or a team with a top defense including;

That doesn't even include games with Tennessee, a team that swept the Texans last season, or Atlanta...

In light of the above, we believe the Texans are likely to take a step back in the record department before taking a step forward.

Overall we're predicting a record of (2-14) for the Houston Texans in 2007. However, if the Texans' offensive line play improves, or if Schaub plays incredibly, then there is room for upside.

Additionally, if the defense continues its improved level of play from the second half of 2006, when lining up against 2007's stiffer competition, then there's surely upside to these season long football predictions as well.
