NFL Free Pick: TEN/HOU
With the AFC South Division wrapped up, the Tennessee Titans now try to achieve home field advantage throughout the playoffs when they hit the road Sunday to take on the surging Houston Texans.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made the Titans -3 point spread favorite. The over/under for this game has been set at 45 total points.
Key Trend: The Titans are an impressive 11-1-1 against the spread in their last 13 games and 5-0 against the spread in their last five games on the road. The Texans, meanwhile, are 0-5 against the spread in their last five games when playing Tennessee.
Key Stat: The Titans are averaging 25.5 points a game this year, while only allowing 14.2 PPG. Houston’s defense hasn’t been a bright spot as the Texans are allowing 25.5 points per game this year.
Game Outlook: People are high on the Texans right now and they should be – Houston has won its last two games in a row and now have home field advantage against the Titans. But the reality is that Tennessee still has a lot to play for as they try to secure home field advantage throughout the playoffs and the fact of the matter is that the Texans looked good against a bad Jaguars team and a slumping Packers squad the past two weeks. They should give the Titans a game, but Tennessee’s defense is just too good and will shut down the highly impressive Steve Slaton. Take Titans and the gift –3 point spread, but take the under. Houston will have a tough time scoring.
