Green Bay will need to figure out their road woes.

Green Bay Packers vs. Houston Texans Betting Prediction
This should be a very entertaining game. The Green Bay Packers are just a season removed from being a dominant Super Bowl Champion. The Packers have ran into some bad luck, but also have not played real well early in the season. Houston is the class of the AFC, and expects to continue their run. The Texans schedule gets quite a bit tougher, starting with this game. It will be interesting to see what the Texans decide to do against a Green Bay defense that frankly hasn’t been real sharp. We are going to take the Houston Texans -4, and also bet over 48; as the Texans win 28-21.
