The Texans will look to tie their record against the Bills’ powerful offense following a Thursday night football loss to the Carolina Panthers in Week 3.
QB invoices Josh Allen had a rough start to the season with 3 touchdowns in 2 games, but the fourth-year quarterback had 4 touchdowns and 358 yards last week against the Washington football team. Without much racing play, Allen will once again be called upon to play for Buffalo.
Texans will look to WR Brandin cooks and RB Marc Ingram for the manufacture. Rookie QB Davis Mills will start again with the veteran QB Tyrod taylor still hurt. Mills had 168 yards and one touchdown against the Panthers.

Texans at Bills odds, lines, predictions and picks
Bills 31, Texans 16
PAST on the money line. With Buffalo at home and expected to come out on top, there’s no question that going over a -1800 line is the right move.
There is no reason to bet 18 times your potential return. All of these players are paid to play football at a high level and upheavals are coming.
Against the spread
“SKINNY” to the TEXANS +17.5 (-108) as the best value.
Mills, once he got to grips with the offense and played at NFL level last week, started moving the ball. With veterans in the backfield and away, the Texans should be able to at least push the Bills early.
The Texans haven’t lost more than 15 points, even against tough opponents from the Panthers and Cleveland Browns. With Poyer’s absence for the Bills, underdog coverage seems likely.
BET on the OVER 46.5 (-117) as Allen begins to heat up.
With his struggles, the Bills have crossed the projected line just once in three games. The Texans have hit the Over in two of three games.
Expect a big day from Allen against a Texans defense that surrendered more than 300 yards to Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold last week.
Mills is also becoming more comfortable in the pocket, which could allow the Texans to be in constant scoring position.
