Titans vs Texans ATS Pick: Texans -4

The Tennessee Titans put forth a solid effort last week in a losing cause against the Seattle Seahawks. When the dust cleared, the Titans dropped a 20-17 decision and pushed as 3-point home underdogs.

Veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill got the start in place of injured rookie Will Levis but it appears the latter will be back under center for this one after being sidelined by an ankle injury last week.

These teams played two weeks ago and the Texans came away with a 19-16 overtime victory, covering as 3-point road dogs according to the NFL odds at the time. However, the Texans were severely undermanned but will have many of those players coming back healthy for this meeting.

One of those players returning for Houston appears to be wunderkind rookie, C.J. Stroud, who has been in concussion protocol causing him to miss the first meeting between these teams while veteran Case Keenum was summoned in his stead.

We should also note that Levis was sacked seven times by the Houston pass rush and not much is expected to change as Tennessee is still using a patchwork offensive line, which will further limit the Titans’ offense.

The NFL expert picks we have recently seen are squarely behind the Texans and with Stroud likely returning, it’s hard to disagree. Lay the -4 and include the Texans in your NFL picks!

Player Prop Pick: C.J. Stroud Passing Touchdowns Over 2½ (+177)

There is an excellent chance Stroud starts for Houston and if he goes, he will torch a lackluster Tennessee secondary, making over 2½ passing touchdowns an easy bet to make.
