Bet on the NFLNFL betting lines handicappers have seen quite a turnaround with the Tennessee Titans since their bye week as they have won 3 consecutive NFL betting matchups. NFL betting lines prospects improved with the Titans after the bye week as owner Bud Adams ordered that Vince Young be installed as quarterback for the rest of the NFL betting season.
Young is undefeated with the NFL betting lines and has far better NFL betting numbers that previous starter Kerry Collins. But Tennessee’s real strength in NFL football betting is their rushing attack that is ranked 2nd best in the NFL. Chris Johnson already has 1091 yards and a 6.4 yards per carry average with 8 touchdowns. The Titans defense was their big weakness with the NFL betting lines this year when they started off 0-6 straight up and 1-5 with the NFL betting lines. Tennessee still ranks 30th in points permitted but the defense has improved during their 3-game winning streak with the NFL betting lines. The Titans have gone over the total in 4 out of 5 road games this year.
The Houston Texans have a record of 5-4 straight up and 5-3-1 with the NFL betting lines. Houston is coming off a bye week that followed a heartbreaking 17-20 loss at Indianapolis as Kris Brown missed a 42-yard field goal that would have sent the game into overtime. Houston is under intense pressure to make their first ever playoff appearance. Last year the Texans opened at 5-2 only to fade and finish 8-8 and out of the money. The Texans rank 6th with the NFL betting lines for scoring and have the third ranked passing attack in the league. Quarterback Matt Schaub has been a key asset with the NFL betting lines as he has a 98.1 quarterback rating and a 17/9 touchdown to interception ratio. The Texans have covered just 1 out of 4 home games this year.
These two AFC South Division rivals previously met this season on September 20 when Houston scored a 34-31 win as 7-point road dogs. The underdog has covered 9 out of the last 12 matchups in this head to head series.
