The Houston Texans and Oakland Raiders take the NFL to Mexico City. According to OddsShark, the Raiders enter the contest as a six point favorite.

The over-under is set at 45 points. The OddsShark computer is optimistic about the Raiders chances. The computer projects a 29.7-14.9 Raiders victory. The computer is taking Oakland to cover the spread and the under on the point total.

Both teams have done well against the spread this season. The Texans have gone 5-3-1 while the Raiders are 6-3 against the spread.

Like the computer, Heavy likes the Raiders chances but disagree on the margin. Oakland has tended to play in close games.

Given the uniqueness of this game, we expect a close one. The young Raiders defense should cause problem for Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler. Oakland has a dynamic offense with Derek Carr, Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree and Latavius Murray that is difficult to defend.

Look for Carr and the offense to lead the Raiders to victory in Mexico City.

Heavy’s Pick: Raiders 27 Texans 23. Texans +6. Over on the Point Total.
