Lions at Texans—NFL free pick is Detroit Lions +4.5. Expect a bounce back from Detroit after their embarrassing loss at home to New England last week. Team has to respond after that performance. Matthew Stafford will have Connor Cook a healthy backup. Cook has experience in the NFL. Houston is dealing with an injury to their backup AJ McCarron. The backup for Deshaun Watson is Joe Webb. Texans are dealing with injury to their starting wide receiver Keke Coutee and starting center Nick Martin. Depth issue for the offensive line as Houston also have backups banged up. Play Detroit Lions +4.5.
Dallas Cowboys vs. LA Rams Pick Prediction 8/17/2019
Cowboys at Rams—Free pick is Dallas Cowboys and LA Rams to play under the total of 40 points. This game will be played in Hawaii. LA Rams head coach Sean McVay has said will keep 20 starters back home in LA for this preseason game. Rams don’t show much offensively in the preseason under McVay and last week was no different in their 14-3 loss at Oakland. Cowboys didn’t show much offensively in their 17-9 defeat at San Francisco. Dallas is dealing with injuries to their starting offensive line. Don’t expect Cowboys will use Dak Prescott too much here with starting linemen out. Their backup tight ends and guard is banged up. There are also injuries at wide receiver. No Ezekiel Elliot with the holdout. Cowboys did not run well and they may run a lot with their injuries. 87 degrees and high humidity. Play Dallas Cowboys and LA Rams under 40 points.
