The Houston Texans shouldn't have much trouble with the Miami Dolphins in their season opener on Sunday, according to well, everyone. The Texans are 13-point favorites, according to OddsShark.

ESPN's stable of 12 NFL experts unanimously picked the Texans to win on Sunday.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King predicts a 30-9 drubbing at the hands of the Texans, and says, "Of the 16 games on opening weekend, there's one I can't imagine the underdog winning. This one."

CBS Sports' team of NFL experts also picked the Texans across the board.

SB Nation's own Joel Thorman picks the Texans as well, predicting a 38-14 blowout.
