Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans Betting Odds

Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans betting odds were heavily sought out early in the week, though on the surface this wouldn't appear to be the most attractive of games.  It is, however, one of the top bets at Sportsbetting.com as of Wednesday morning with nearly 95 percent of the action coming in on Tennessee. 

The line opened at Titans -6 ½ and nearly 90 percent of the sportsbooks still had it there with the other 10 percent moving up or down a mere half point.  There has been very little line movement in this game across the board.   

Past history is important here since these two teams play one another twice a year.  The home team has won the last three games in this series (Houston having won one, which was the last game played).  Aside from the last game, Tennessee has won the previous seven.  The Titans lost by a mere point towards the end of last season against Houston.  Tennessee won by more than the current spread in their last two victories over the Texans.  The four previous wins were not so convincing and came in under the current spread.

The Texans do stand a good chance of bouncing back this week as they are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game.  They are also 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a SU loss of more than 14 points.

The Titans, however, are 9-0 ATS in their last 9 games in September and 12-3 ATS in their last 15 vs. AFC South.  They are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 vs. AFC.

From AcuScore:

The Titans played well enough to win Week 1, but they did not. The Texans were a major Week 1 disappointment and they only have a 28 percent chance of bouncing back in Week 2. Between interceptions and lost fumbles Matt Schaub is averaging 2 turnovers per simulation and 3 turnovers as a team. If Houston turns the ball over no more than once their chances sky-rocket from 28 to 48 percent. Look for Chris Johnson to out-shine Steve Slaton. Johnson is averaging 30 more rushing yards per simulation and when he has 75+ rushing yards the Titans have an 83 percent chance of winning.

If the New York Jets were the frying pan, the Tennessee Titans may be the fire, writes Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle.

"We've all got to look in the mirror," Texans quarterback Matt Schaub said. "We're going to have our hole card checked again this week."

Statistically, Schaub had his worst game.

"It was bad," Schaub said, conceding the obvious after reviewing the video. "It was a bad game all the way around. We've just got to deal with it. We're moving on. It's the only way we can look at it. We're 0-1. We can't change what happened yesterday, but we can improve on it and learn from it and get better."

Kubiak's decision to let his young offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan, call the plays this season is now being questioned. But Kubiak adamantly reiterated that the buck stops with him.

"We're going to prepare together and call all the games together," he said. "The responsibility with the offense starts with (me). Kyle is doing fine, OK? I didn't have us in good enough position with the plan. It's my fault."

This is a tough call.  Everything suggests Houston should cover but we just can't help recalling what transpired this past week.
