NFL Week 16 Betting Preview and Analysis for Houston Texans at New York

Texans Searching for First Win Since Week Five

What has happened in Tennessee? The Titans dropped their first two games of the season but rattled off six straight victories to take control of the AFC South. Despite this, the Titans have now dropped their last four contests, and Tennessee is now one game ahead of the surging Jaguars in the division.

In their loss to the Chargers, their defense once again put in a solid effort to keep them in the game. The unit recorded three sacks and two interceptions while allowing only 17 points. Overall, the defensive unit is allowing a mediocre 365 yards of offense while also surrendering 20.9 points per game.

On the offensive end, the Titans rely heavily on the running game, and Derrick Henry found the end zone and rushed for his second straight 100-yard game.

Unfortunately, Ryan Tannehill and the passing game were ineffective, as the offense as a whole mustered just 284 yards. To make matters worse, the Texans could be without their starting quarterback in this matchup, according to the NFL injury report.

Titans Hope to Snap Four-Game Skid

With Davis Mills back at quarterback, the Texans have put together two solid outings as they almost stole victories from back-to-back playoff contenders. Unfortunately, they continue to show their inability to finish games as they extended their losing streak to nine games. 

While the Texans put up a valiant effort against one of the AFC’s top teams, the offense has been ineffective all year. Davis Mills tossed two touchdowns in the loss, but the team overall ranks 31st in total offense (278.4) while scoring only 16.8 points per game. 

Defensively, this Texans team has been arguably one of the worst units in the league. In addition to surrendering 30 points and over 500 yards of offense to the Chiefs, the Texans are conceding a whopping 388.9 yards and 24.6 points per game.

Betting Odds and Lines 

According to Mybookie, the Tennessee Titans have opened up as 5-point favorites (-110) in this contest at Nissan Stadium.

In terms of the moneyline, the Titans are -245 favorites to win this one on the road, while the Houston Texans are +190 underdogs at home to grab the victory. When it comes to the total, the Over/Under has been listed at 37 points (-110) on Mybookie.

Betting Pick

The Houston Texans are in line to clinch the number one overall pick in the upcoming NFL draft with just one win so far this season. Despite this, they have played some strong football, holding late leads over the last two weeks against two strong teams in Dallas and Kansas City.

The Titans, on the other hand, have a lot more to play for as they hold just a one-game lead over the Jaguars in the AFC South. They have lost four straight contests but look to turn things around against a terrible Houston Texans team.

When it comes to the Titans vs Texans best bets, take the Houston Texans to cover the spread in this one. It looks like the Titans will turn to Malik Willis in this contest, and the Texans have played strong football as of late, covering the spread in each of their last two games. Tennessee hasn’t covered the spread since Week 11, and I think they could be on upset alert in this one.
