Straight Up (Sebastian Morera)
The Texans enter this weekend’s action with a disappointing 1-4 record. However, Houston is coming off their first win of the season, a 30-14 triumph over their AFC South rivals the Jacksonville Jaguars. Now Houston looks to separate themselves as much as possible from Bill O’Brien and getting a win is a step in the right direction.
The Titans are undefeated and are coming off a dominant 42-16 Tuesday night win over the Buffalo Bills. The Titans running game was on full display racking up 139 rushing yards and 3 touchdowns. Ryan Tannehill had a great night finishing with 195 passing yards, 3 touchdowns, a 129.3 passer rating and only 7 incompletions on the night.
Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Houston Texans (1-4) finally earned their first victory of the season, defeating the Jaguars 30-14 in Jacksonville last week. We can expect the Texans’ momentum to stall out in Nissan Stadium. The Tennessee Titans (4-0) have shown remarkable resilience, and may very well be the best team in the AFC. The Titans smashed the Buffalo Bills 42-16 on Tuesday night, despite not being able to practice due to muddy COVID-19 waters.
This Week 6 contest will be played on short rest for Tennessee, but that won’t matter. The Titans will actually get to practice, perhaps positioning themselves to improve upon their 9:1 takeaway/giveaway ratio. This Tennessee team is really something special, and if they can stay healthy I believe the Titans will reach the Super Bowl this season. Regarding this matchup, the home team is 6-2 ATS over the last eight games. Expect the Titans to cover the spread comfortably with some home-cookin’.

The Houston Texans won their first game after firing HC Bill O’Brien and they scored 30 points.
Previously, they were averaging 22 points per game. Also, in Week 5 QB DeShaun Watson threw a touchdown pass to three different receivers.
The total has gone over in four of Houston’s last six games.
After the Covid-19 outbreak, the Tennessee Titans became a mystery, but then they crushed the Buffalo Bills after scoring 42 points.
The Titans average 30.5 points per game and Derrick Henry remains as one of the top running backs in the league.
The total has gone over in six of Tennessee’s last seven games at home. Go under.
