The Houston Texans will look to grab a strangle hold on the AFC South division lead when they visit the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. The Texans have been as close as it gets to being a sure thing vs the Titans, as they’ve gone 8-1 ATS in their last nine games against them.
There’s no other way to put it—the Titans are a horrible bet against division opponents. They’ve gone a pathetic 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 games against divisional foes. The Titans will once again be in contention for the top draft pick in the NFL draft, but will have the opportunity to “improve” upon their AFC worst 1-6 SU home record.
After two losses in a row the Texans got back on track with an ugly 16-10 win over the Colts in Week 15. Brandon Weeden stepped for an injured T.J. Yates and he could get the call vs the Titans if injured started Brian Hoyer doesn’t get cleared. It could be a battle of the back-ups as Zach Mettenberger is set to start in place of Marcus Mariota (knee).
This one has the makings of the can miss game of the year.
