The Washington Commanders did what no one managed to do before Week 10 and that was to beat the Philadelphia Eagles. The Commanders crushed Philly’s dreams of an undefeated season in a 32-21 road win last Monday. Meanwhile, the Houston Texans are still trying to find their way out of a tunnel with their losing streak reaching four games after a 24-16 road loss to the New York Giants in Week 10. Check out our preview of this Commanders vs Texans game in Week 11 of the 2022 NFL regular season.
Betting Preview for the Washington Commanders vs Houston Texans Week 11 Game on November 20, 2022
Where: NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas
When: Sunday, November 20, 2022, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Washington Commanders (-3.0)
Regular Season Record: 5-5
Don’t expect the Commanders to switch back to Carson Wentz in Week 11. Washington is winning with Taylor Heinicke orchestrating the offense on the field, so look for the Commanders to get him another start against the lowly Texans. Heinicke passed for 211 yards with zero touchdowns and an interception on 17/29 completions against Philadelphia but helped the team collect seven more first downs than the Eagles and go 12/21 on third downs. After getting over the hump that was Philly, there’s nothing to stop Washington from feeling very confident about its chances versus the one-win Houston squad.
The Commanders are 4-0-1 against the spread in their last five games overall.
Betting on the Houston Texans (+3.0)
Regular Season Record: 1-7-1
There is no plan in Houston to make a quarterback change, so expect Davis Mills to start in Week 11 for their team. Mills has his moments this season, but he is still far from being a reliable option under center. That is also why the Texans will continue to ride the talents of rookie running back Dameon Pierce, who is becoming more and more accustomed to the NFL. Pierce rushed for 94 yards on 17 carries against the Giants and also had a pair of catches for 28 yards. Houston is a team that could be a turnover or two less from defeating a middling team like Washington that is just 22nd in the NFL with 1.1 takeaways per game.
The Over is 5-2 in the Texans’ last seven games as the home team.
The Commanders win, 23-20.
