Titans vs. Texans Total Prediction
AFC South rivals clash in Houston on Monday night when the Texans host the Tennessee Titans at 8:15 p.m. ET. With the total sitting in the low-40s, will the combined score go over the number or does this game set up as a defensive struggle throughout?
273 Tennessee Titans at 274 Houston Texans
8:15 p.m. ET, Monday, November 26, 2018

Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Texans are 3.5-point favorites to beat the Titans. The total, meanwhile, sits at 42 points. As of this writing, 62% of the public betting tickets are on the Texans to cover the point spread.
Marcus Mariota (neck) will start Monday night's game against the Texans. The Titans removed Mariota from the injury report after two straight full practices. Mariota's neck injury was never expected to keep him out, but he may not be 100 percent. He's our No. 24 ranked quarterback for Week 12.
Keke Coutee (hamstring) has been removed from the Week 12 injury report. There's no doubt over Coutee's status after a full practice Saturday. Coutee saw more targets than Demaryius Thomas in his return from his hamstring injury last week. He's a WR3 in a plus matchup with Tennessee's secondary.
NFL Betting Trends
The under is 4-1 in the Titans’ last five games versus an opponent with a winning record.
The under is 6-2 in the Texans’ last eight games coming off a win.
The under has been a great play for these teams, cashing in all seven of the Titans’ last seven conference games, going 6-0 in their last six divisional games, and 5-1 in their last six games overall. The under is also 4-1 in the Texans’ last five Monday games, is 11-5 in their last 16 games overall, and 5-2 in their last seven divisional games. I fully expect both defenses to play well tonight in a game that may not get out of the teens.
