Deshaun Watson went deep to DeAndre Hopkins from 35 yards out in the second quarter and again from 30 yards out in the fourth, each time giving the Texans the lead over the Colts, the last strike the 20-17 game-winner. Houston bettors, however, came up one deep ball short, losing ATS when Watson's last endzone heave intentionally overshot Hopkins to run out the clock and preserve the victory.
