Cleveland Browns vs. Houston Texans December 4 Prop Betting Preview
The Cleveland Browns (4-7) head to Houston (1-9-1) to take on the Texans at NRG Stadium this Sunday. In what should be an exciting matchup, the Browns are looking to get a win against a reeling Texans team that will be playing with some extra motivation.
In the homecoming for quarterback Deshaun Watson, lots of eyes will be viewing this matchup as an opportunity to make way too early conclusions about who won this offseason trade.
The point total for this game is currently 46.5, which the bulk of is expected to be provided by the Browns and their Top 10 offense. The Browns are also the clear favorite at (-358) on the Money Line.
Here are some prop bets we think could come into play in this Sunday’s matchup.
Amari Cooper Anytime TD (-135)
It’s probably not good for the Texans that Amari Cooper is already favored to score a touchdown despite never taking a snap with Deshaun Watson at quarterback. This goes to show how good Cooper has been this season.
In last week’s game against Tampa Bay, Cooper had a deep catch down the sideline in overtime that probably could've gone for a touchdown. Is it fair to say there might be some rust and chemistry that Cooper and Watson need to build?
Yes. But both players perform at an elite level, and with a struggling Texans secondary, this one is too good to pass up.
Kyle Allen Under 219.5 Passing Yards (-115)
Kyle Allen shouldn't be starting on any team in the league. He’s probably not even the best quarterback on the Texans' roster. With Brandin Cooks pretty much mentally checked out and inconsistent pass protection, it will be a long day for Allen.
Myles Garrett is looking to chase sacks with a purpose, and this Browns' defense has improved a lot considering the start of this season.
Nico Collins will likely draw the challenging task of Martin Emerson Jr., who has been otherworldy in man coverage. Provided the Browns don’t give up a big chunk of yards on one passing play, I think it will be tough for Allen to clear 220 passing yards.
Dameon Pierce Over 15.5 Receiving Yards (-115)
If the Texans fall behind early, they will be forced to start throwing the ball despite the harsh reality I provided about Kyle Allen.
This will most likely work in favor of rookie running back Dameon Pierce, who has shown some progress in gaining yards after contact. Expect a few check-downs to Pierce to get the ball out of Kyle Allen’s hands before the Browns defensive line has an opportunity to prey.
