The Texans will travel to San Francisco to face the 49ers in Week 5 on Sunday Night Football. The Texans are coming off a demoralizing loss in overtime to the Seahawks and are looking to get a win against Seattle's division rivals on the road. San Francisco was able to get back to its winning ways in Week 4 against the Rams and is coming off ten days of rest. The home team will be fully prepared and riding its recent momentum.
Coming off their Week 4 victory, the 49ers are 7.5-point favorites at home against the Texans. Six of the eight CBS Sports panelist believe that spread is too high. However, when the spread is taken out of consideration, all eight analysts believe the 49ers will win straight up. The two-man panels at Yahoo Sports also believe that the 49ers will beat the Texans in Week 5.
The SB Nation panel is also in favor of the 49ers. The group of experts went 4-1 in favor of San Francisco and Ryan Van Bibber was the lone wolf with the pick of the Texans.
The 49ers will host the Texans on Sunday Night Football at 8:30 p.m. ET.
