Revenge is an important factor to handicap when making against-the-spread (ATS) football picks on a weekly basis, which certainly comes into play with the Houston Texans hosting the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday afternoon, with the opening kickoff from Reliant Stadium scheduled for 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS.

Texans running back Arian Foster figures to play an important part in determining a winner in this contest, considering he gained 132 yards on 27 carries in last year's 20-13 playoff loss to the Baltimore Ravens as 7.5-point road underdogs.
