Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans: Preview and Pick
The end of the season is here for the National Football League and teams will be playing in their final game this weekend. Many of the games to end the season don’t have much of a role in the playoff picture, but they will have an effect on the NFL draft. The game between the Houston Texans and the Tennessee Titans is one of those games.
Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans Preview
The NFL odds for this game opened up with the Titans listed as (-6) point home favorites. The Texans lost another game last week to the Denver Broncos and they are floundering to end the year. The football betting public has noticed as over 65 percent is on the Titans. This public push has moved the line and the Titans are now listed as (-7) point favorites. This line could change leading up to kickoff so make sure to check out the latest point spread at a top rated online sportsbook prior to kickoff.
Despite how badly the Texans have played, they do have some things to be proud of.
Andre Johnson became only the second player in NFL history to have five seasons with at least 100 catches (matching Broncos receiver Wes Welker). He came into Sunday’s game with 99 catches. Because of a combination of missteps by both he and quarterback Matt Schaub, Johnson caught only four passes on his 13 targets. Unfortunately that has not been enough to get the Texans into the win column or the playoffs.
The latest football betting trends for this game reveal that both teams have some negative trends in this game of two teams missing out on the playoffs. The total has gone over in 6 of Tennessee’s last 7 games when playing at home against Houston but the total has gone under in 4 of Houston’s last 6 games on the road.

Tennessee is 1-5-1 ATS in its last 7 games overall but will catch a struggling Texans team.Houston is 0-5 straight up in its last 5 games on the road and Houston is 0-5 straight up in its last 5 games.
