With four covers in six games so far this season the Houston Texans will get their next chance at a payout on Monday Night Football at Heinz Field when they take on a Pittsburgh Steelers team coming off a lopsided loss to a rival.
But they do so riding a 10-game SU losing skid as a road underdog and on an 0-6 ATS run on Monday nights.
The Steelers are just 3-3 SU and 2-4 ATS on the season after falling 31-10 to the Browns last week, and in their most recent game against the Texans back in 2011 they lost 17-10 as a 4-point road underdog. Three of the four past meetings between the Texans and the Steelers dating back to the 2002 season have been UNDER results.
