Houston Texans Vs. Tennessee Titans Betting Picks, Preview, Predictions, & Odds
After recording their first win of the season following the firing of Bill O’Brien, the Texans (1-4 SU, 1-4 ATS) will travel to Nashville to meet the Titans (4-0 SU, 1-3) in the Week 6 matchup. Their Sunday rivals, Tennessee, showed that the Covid-19 situation didn’t have much of a negative effect on the team as they routed the favored Bills on Tuesday to keep their 100% record.
Houston Texans Vs. Tennessee Titans Betting Picks, Preview, & Odds, Line Movement
The Titans opened as -5.5 favorites after their dominant performance against the Bills, but a short recovery period and Houston improvement caused the line to drop to -3 or 3.5 depending on the sportsbook. The total is set at 53 at the moment.
Thoughts on The Houston Texans
It seems that the interim head coach Romeo Crennel of the Houston Texans has helped the team regain some of the confidence they’ve been missing since the start of the season. Perhaps the Jaguars are not the best opponent to be measured against, but strong showing across the board have given the Texans a lot of reasons to be encouraged ahead of the Sunday game. QB DeShaun Watson continued with terrific displays but the rushing game is still a cause of concern. The defense showed some much-needed improvement compared to the first four games and will have to perform even better to keep Houston’s playoff hopes alive.
Fantasy football betting players were certainly pleased to see DeShaun Watson dominate again and will be hoping for more of the same as he faces Tennessee’s porous pass defense. WR Brandin Cooks is slowly becoming Watson’s favorite target and will try to build on the excellent game against the Jaguars. RB David Jonhson had his best performance of the season last week but, as we said, running is not Texans’ strong suit and there are better RB options elsewhere.
Thoughts On The Tennessee Titans
The Titans surprised everyone last week and the excellent display against the Bills and showed that this team is more than capable of battling through adversity. The defense frustrated Josh Allen and Buffalo running backs all night long and QB Ryan Tannehill added a 10-yard scoring run to his three touchdown passes. Tennessee has every reason to be proud of their showing on Tuesday and will be entering the Texans game confident that they can extend their run to 5-0.
Tannehill has successfully recovered from the no-touchdown game against the Vikings and his fantasy value only continues to rise. WR A.J. Brown showed no signs of rustiness after missing the first three games and looked like his old self against the Bills. His presence also opened a lot of space for Jonnu Smith and Houston defense has been pretty bad against tight ends all season long. After scoring 2 touchdowns last time out, RB Derrick Henry should have a field day against the Texans and could easily rush for over 100 yards.
Houston Texans Vs. Tennessee Titans Betting Pick: Over 53
The Tennessee Titans offense is red-hot at the moment and well cause a lot of problems for Houston defense. On the other hand, Deshaun Watson and co will try to exploit Tennessee’s fatigue and this game can easily end up in the sixties.
