Texans vs. Cardinals odds, picks, line, how to watch, live stream: Model reveals 2021 Week 7 NFL predictions

Former All-Pros for the Texans will take the field against Houston for the first time as J.J. Watt, DeAndre Hopkins and the Arizona Cardinals welcome their former team. Watt and Hopkins are learning that the grass is sometimes greener on the other side, as they’ve helped the Cardinals reach 6-0 for the first time since 1974. Meanwhile, the Texans (1-5) have simply been punch-less outside of Houston, as they’ve been outscored 71-3 over their last two road games. These teams have met four times previously, with the home team winning all four times. You can stream the match in select markets on Paramount+.

Kickoff is set for 4:25 p.m. ET from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. The Cardinals are 18.5-point favorites in the latest Texans vs. Cardinals odds according to Caesars Sportsbook. The over-under for total points scored is 47.5. In select markets, Sunday’s matchup can be seen live on CBS and streamed live on Paramount+ with their must-have Premium plan.

Week 7 NFL picks for Cardinals vs. Texans

Before you tune in to Sunday’s Texans vs. Cardinals game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,700 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. It went a sizzling 24-14 on top-rated NFL picks last season, returning more than $800. The model also enters Week 7 of the 2021 season on an incredible 125-85 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

For Cardinals vs. Texans, the model is backing the Over (47.5) to hit. The number has dropped a half-point since opening at 48, and that only increases the model’s faith in the Over.

Arizona ranks fourth in scoring offense, while Houston ranks 25th in scoring defense, so the Cardinals are expected to contribute much more to the point total than Houston is. That will be no problem for quarterback Kyler Murray, as he’s helped the Cards’ offense put up at least 31 points in five of six games. The offense has the potential to be even better starting in Week 7 as new tight end Zach Ertz gets integrated into the offense. Ertz is projected to be one of five Cardinals pass-catchers to post at least 40 receiving yards on Sunday.

The Over hits in almost 60 percent of simulations, per the model, as the teams are expected to combine for 51 total points, with a final score of 35-16.
